Eskom Rotek Industries makes TII’s biggest buy for South Africa

Eskom Rotek Industries has purchased 128 axle lines of the proven SCHEUERLE-KAMAG K25 H, making this buy the biggest order of K25 H modular trailers with 1.830 mm axle distance the TII Group ever obtained from the African continent. The vehicles will support the Eskom Rotek Industries Logistics Services fleet, offering road transport, material handling, warehousing and logistics services to move electricity generation, transmission, distribution and building equipment to and from site.

Eskom Rotek Industries has a rich history of electricity maintenance support spanning more than a century. Based in Rosherville in the south of Johannesburg, the company has a national footprint in the form of smaller regional and project site offices. It is a dynamic business with operations clustered around Bulk Material Services, Turbo Generation Services, Construction Services, Logistics Services and Transformer and Switchgear Services.

“Continuously expanding our business opportunities is part of our growth strategy. Our new modular transporters will enable us to move abnormal loads for mega projects and of equipment that exceed the prescribed dimensions and mass permissible on South African roads faster, safer and easier“ says Sitsabo Kuhlase, General Manager Logistics Services at Eskom Rotek Industries.

The SCHEUERLE KAMAG K25 is a modular platform trailer with which a wide range of transport assignments can be covered. The vehicle is used as a trailer, semi-trailer or self-propelled transporter and has set new standards in its segment. SCHEUERLE-KAMAG K25 H SP and SPE vehicles are a cost-effective addition to create self-propelled transport units together with other K25 H vehicles. Their advantage is not only found in the low and robust construction but also in the sophisticated and ingenious control technology. In particular, operators of non-driven K25 H fleets greatly appreciate the SP and SPE models which can easily be coupled with the pulled versions thus realising self-propelled vehicle combinations for on-site transportation assignments, and in the process open up new areas of business.

Announcement

HeavyTorque White Logo

It is with regret, that the HeavyTorque team have decided to take a stand based on an industry-wide ‘blind eye’ to the waste in the magazine and periodicals business.

HeavyTorque (#15, July 2018) was the final issue to grace the shop shelves, both on the High Street and across the travel network. As part of our onward strategy to adapt, HeavyTorque will now be distributed exclusively through controlled circulation and available through printed subscription.

Please note, this change will only affect newsstand purchasers. There will be no change for our loyal print subscribers.

Why the newsstand change? Quite simply, we can no longer (in good conscience) participate in a distribution programme that creates such an inherent waste of our precious natural resources – and money.

For those of you who have enjoyed HeavyTorque from the newsstand, we sincerely appreciate your business – and we would hope that you’ve enjoyed the magazine enough to consider a direct subscription?
