    Transportes Cepelludo – Spreading the risk

    June 2019

    The route to the village of Salces, high in the mountains of the Spanish province of Cantabria, runs along the beautiful artificial lake at the source of the main river in Spain, the Ebro. The mountain tops on the horizon are more than 2,500 metres high and even on a hot summer’s day they still have snow on them. The people living in the mountains are hard workers, shaped by the cold winters and hot summers. And exactly in a cold winter on the mountainside, that’s where the history of Transportes Cepelludo begins. An interview with angel perez salces.

    Four Nooteboom Manoovr’s for Ter Linden Transport

    May 2019

    Ter Linden Transport has specialised in the transport of windmills throughout Europe. Every year the company transports more than 200 wind turbines. To transport the wings, tower sections and nacelles Ter Linden has an extensive and modern fleet, including MWT Mega Windmill Transporters. Ter Linden has now also opted for the Manoovr semi low-loader. Their latest investment concerns four MPL-114-07(V) trailers that just has been delivered in the last weeks. These 7-axle extendible semitrailers, due to the low load floor, will be mainly used for the transport of nacelles and tower sections. In order to accommodate future developments these semi low-loaders are ready to be used with a Multidolly.

    Affolter Transporte AG – Like a Swiss

    May 2019

    Affolter Transporte from the Swiss village Schüpfen has an ultra-modern fleet for abnormal transports. However, the heavy combinations of Affolter are rarely seen on the European motorways and they only visit the ports of Rotterdam, Antwerp or Hamburg sporadically. Switzerland has a special place in Europe. It is not a member of the EU, but it is positioned as a sort of island in between the member states of the EU. The area Affolter Transporte operates in is the ‘Mittelland’. This is the undulating, partly flat plateau between Lake Constance and Lake Geneva. an interview with Rudolph and Ernst Affolter.
