Specialized transport company STP Premat, based in France, used Nicolas MDEL TP trailers to transport several trains for a railway repair workshop facility in Saint Avold, France.

The train carriages weighed around 50 tonnes each. They were transported from Les Mureaux and moved 424 km to Saint Avold. To transport the cargo, the Nicolas MDEL TP trailers were modified to include rails set into the deck.

The convoy length reached 35 metres. The heaviest trailer load of 2 + 4 axles with a 65 tonne locomotive, weighed a total of 101 tonnes.

Eduard Pointeau, TII Sales area sales manager, said, “STP Premat did an excellent job here. The customer can completely rely on the MDEL TP which provides planning reliability and allows such a high level of performance.”
