VTG Moves Transformer Autoclaves

Heavy transport firm VTG has delivered seven modules for a transformer autoclave from Eastern Germany to Ludvika, Sweden.

The consignment included components weighing 35 to 50 tonnes and measuring 11 meters in long, 7 meters wide and 3 meters high.

“The modules were trucked to the inland port of Magdeburg, Germany, then barged to Hamburg, sailed on a coaster to Västeras, Sweden, and trucked onward to ABB Ludvika,” a spokesperson for VTG said.

Headquartered in Gemrany, VTG provides international wagon hire and rail logistics via a fleet of 80,000 railcars – the largest privately owned fleet in Europe. The firm is a member of breakbulk association CLC Projects, which connects small and medium-sized project freight forwarders worldwide.

Fellow CLC member, MFC also reported a recent breakbulk delivery with the transportation of four units for KFC & Hardees. The cargo was moved by road from Umm al-Quwain, UAE to Saudi Arabia using four low beds.
