Dead weight ditched on new modular platform trailer
By Christian Shelton01 March 2017
French transport and service provider, AltéAd, has taken ownership of the latest modular platform trailer from transportation specialist, the Tii Group, to assist it in the transportation of wind turbines.
According to the Tii Group, its new modular platform trailer, the Scheuerle-Kamag K 25 M, is a lightweight modular transport solution designed to offer more payload per axle. The vehicle manufacturer also says the new model facilitates approval processes, particularly in Europe, where axle load restrictions apply. "Less dead weight means more payload and a simplified approval process,” said Bernd Schwengsbier, Tii Sales CEO.
The platform trailer can also be easily coupled with either Tii’s heavy-duty Scheuerle-Kamag K25 H modular transporter or various competitor vehicles. The two and six-axle modules of the Scheuerle-Kamag K 25 M can also be supplied as a ‘split’ version that can be separated.
“Growing competitive pressure, axle load limitations and infrastructure problems have led to an increased demand for lightweight modular transport solutions in all load ranges across Europe,” concludes Tii.
