LASO Transportes choses Goldhofer

Portuguese special transport company LASO Transportes SA has relied on Goldhofer’s THP/SL heavy-duty modules to complete the transport of a 70m long and nearly 300 t heavy power plant component from Vale de Cambra to the port of Leca da Palmeira located 60km away. To ensure the safe delivery of this huge metal component (70m x 5.6m x 5.3m) through narrow curves, crossings, and roundabouts, LASO transport experts used two six-axle THP/SL heavy-duty modules. Advanced road studies made possible to prepare individual road sections in time for the nightly transport, for example by removing traffic lights, as well as implement escort convoys and police barriers on schedule. The power plant component was transported to the port within two nights for further shipment at the pier.
