  • 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.

    Transannaberg Wiesiollek – “We choose the most modern equipment”

    September 2017

    The A4 is the motorway that meanders through the flat landscape of southern Poland. Situated on the route from Wroclaw to Katowice – on the only mountain in the entire region – is the basilica of St. Anna, visited by more than 400,000 pilgrims every year. Joachim Wiesiollek started his transport company in 1987, together with his wife Mariola, from a small office near the basilica. The name ‘Transannaberg’ refers to the original company location. Transannaberg grew and moved later to Strzelce Opolskie.

    Regulations for abnormal transport in Poland

    August 2017

    The Polish system for abnormal transport is – in principle – simple: three types of roads and seven categories of exemptions. Roads are approved for 8, 10 or 11.5 tonnes per axle. Exemptions are classified into Category 1 to 7. Category 1 is an exemption for regional and local traffic and Cat. 2 applies to agricultural machinery up to 3.5 metres wide. Cat. 3 grants exemption up to 3.2 metres wide, 23 metres long and 4.3 m high, but not for weight. In Cat. 4 the length permitted is 30 metres and the width 3.4 metres, provided the trailer is equipped with steering axles.

  • Nooteboom PowerUp

    August 2017

    The Nooteboom PowerUp is a newly developed lift axle, including a starting-off aid, for semi-trailers with axles that are equipped with hydraulic suspension. Lift axles have already been widely used for years on axles with air suspension, but for axles with hydraulic suspension the possibilities were limited. The core of PowerUp is a clever hydraulic controller, combined with software that was developed by Nooteboom. It makes PowerUp reliable and very simple to operate.

    Kahl Schwerlast – On the move with the latest technology

    August 2017

    The KAHL Unternehmensgruppe has since the takeover by Andreas and Rainer KAHL in 2005 quickly changed from a transport company into a logistics service provider, where process management is more important than wheels. A successful operation, because KAHL came through the crisis without many problems and the outlook for the coming years is good. Is there a formula for this success? Yes, because as well as using the latest technology Andreas and Rainer Kahl manage to get hold of the best and most experienced employees – from driver to management – for their company. In February two Nooteboom Manoovr 3+7 semi low-loaders were delivered to two very happy drivers.

    Robust lightweight semi low-loaders

    July 2017

    All versions are available with 3 or 4 axles and a fixed or extendible load floor. Because these semi-trailers are also used to carry out transports without exemptions, a low dead weight is very important. Owing to the efficient production method the purchase price of the semi low-loaders from the SMART programme is reasonable.

Load floor height is an increasingly important factor in the crane sector.
