In June, a ship block weighing in at around 14,750 tonnes, was moved at Goseong, South Korea, using a fleet of Cometto MSPE Evo2 self-propelled electronic modular trailers. The block was loaded onto a barge for shipment to its final assembly site.

The ship block was manufactured by Samkang MNT for Japanese client IHI Corporation and was eventually delivered to Singapore. The project was carried out by Anjeon, Dae Myung and Global with each company contributing 108 axle lines respectively. This totalled 54 Cometto MSPE Evo2 6/4/2430 six-axle transporters (324 axles) driven by 12, 335kW power pack units, giving a potential capacity of 19,440 tonnes. The total gross weight of the transport, was approximately 16,340 tonnes, so the total axle gross weight was 50.4 tonnes per axle line.

Cometto self-propelled electronic modular trailers use tubeless tires which, says the company, helps with durability and are less damaging to the road. At the Bauma 2016 construction equipment trade fair in Munich, Cometto launched its MSPE Evo3 range, featuring electronic steering and an increased axle capacity of 70 tonnes.

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?
