Collett Transport take ownership of new girder bridge, featuring a ratio of 5.2/factor 6.6 – currently unrivalled in Europe
The new Scheuerle STB 550 girder bridge with a payload of 550 tonnes, has been officially unveiled and handed to new owners Collett Transport.
(WK-intern) – Presented by Scheuerle and TII Group, the impressive STB 550 is not only extraordinary due to its 5.2 ratio between payload and deadweight but also due to its flexible modular combinations. Currently unrivalled in Europe, the STB 550 without load distribution frame features a factor of 6.6.
With this latest addition, Collett Transport have raised the bar, both within the transport world and the industrial marketplace, encouraging manufacturers to increase their portfolio and push the boundaries of technology. Previously restrained by the ability to haul increasingly larger loads, Collett Transport have turned the emphasis back to the manufacturers shifting the challenge from the transport perspective of “how do we transport it?” to the manufacturers “how are we going to produce it?”
Recent recipients of the ESTA Award for Transport Job of the Year, Collett have been making a name for themselves in the transport industry since 1928. From humble beginnings delivering farmer’s milk to local dairies by horse and cart, Collett Transport has evolved to become a specialist in the planning, handling shipping and transportation of large and abnormal cargo.
This latest acquisition of the girder bridge into their already diverse fleet gives Collett the opportunity to climb head and shoulders above the competition and firmly establishes them as market leaders within the industry.
“We are proud to be the owners of the ‘largest capacity trailer’ in Europe. This reflects our Companies strategy of investment in diverse equipment to serve the niche markets of the Power Generation industry.” Said David Collett, Managing Director of Collett & Sons Ltd, “Together with our engineers and those of Scheuerle, we have once again brought innovation to the marketplace. We look forward to working with the girder bridge in the near future.”
During the handover event, and in the run up to the ceremonial unveiling of the girder bridge, Lincoln Collett, Technical Director for Collett Transport, expressed his thanks to Scheuerle: “The new girder bridge closes the last gap in our fleet. The cooperation between Collett and Scheuerle has worked excellently and we are extremely satisfied with the outcome.”
