International heavy transport and lifting provider ALE, headquartered in the UK, has started taking delivery of an order for 16 Nooteboom trailers.
The order includes 8-axle extendible semi low-loaders and 4-axle Quatro extendible Telesteps. Most of the equipment has been delivered to ALE.
Most will be used for the transportation and erection of more than 200 wind turbines in the Eastern-Cape and West-Coast regions of South Africa. Jan Yntema, ALE director, South Africa, said, “We can see important long-term opportunities in South Africa for wind energy and, therefore, we made sure to choose the best trailers there are for this application. For us this meant Nooteboom trailers because they are widely known to set the trend in innovative solutions for the transport of wind turbines." After sales service and tailoring to local market requirements were other features mentioned.
