Addax Petroleum, based in Nigeria, has taken delivery of a Nicolas MHD G2 SPE modular trailer.

The trailer has 20 axle lines and electronic multi-mode steering. It has a 46 tonne axle load capability, the manufacturer said. It will be working in tropical weather conditions, salty air and average temperatures of 30 degrees Celsius, so the modular trailer was painted using a zinc dust primer.

The trailer will be used for loading offshore components onto floating production storage and offloading units (FPSOs). In addition, for road transportation, the MHD G2 can be used as a trailer or semi-trailer combination as well as coupled side-by-side as a 3 or 4-file combination, a company spokesperson said.

Pierre Berret, Nicolas area sales manager, said, “We were able to deliver at very short notice, the vehicle precisely fulfilled all payload requirements and the customer was well convinced by the excellent quality of workmanship. The latest changes in the production process guarantee even higher reliability of our vehicles.”

Addax Petroleum is part of the Sinopec Group, an oil refining group of companies in Asia.
