  • Goud Transport transports historic Whitcomb locomotive for SGB museum

    November 2017

    Under the watchful eye of the media and invited sponsors an exceptional transport of a historic locomotive took place on 7 November. It concerned a Whitcomb diesel locomotive from 1944, which was built during World War II for the US Army. The transport from Antwerp to the Stoomtrein Goes-Borsele (in short: SGB) in Goes was carried out by Goud Transport B.V from Waarde, who called in their specialist Hans Hoogesteger for this event.  With his 4-axle Scania P450 tractor and 4-axle Nooteboom Euro 86-14IFP with 1-axle Interdolly, Hans delivered the 65-tonne locomotive in Goes without any problems. Due to the integrated railway tracks in the floor and ramps of the low-loader there was no need for a heavy crane to unload the locomotive in Goes. This meant a significant reduction in the overall cost of the transport operation.

  • Correction to notice regarding use of Nooteboom patent by Faymonville

    October 2017

    Recently it has been reported incorrectly in several publications that owing to their patent until 2025 Nooteboom is the sole party allowed to produce and market the combination of a deep excavator trough with pendle axles. After the ruling of the European Patent Office in 2015 which granted the patent to Nooteboom, Nooteboom has entered into a constructive dialogue with the company Faymonville regarding the use of this patent by Faymonville. For both parties this led to a satisfactory solution which gives Faymonville the right to produce and market trailers that feature the combination of a deep excavator trough with pendle axles. For this Faymonville has paid Nooteboom an appropriate remuneration.
