No wasted effort for Van der Vlist

Van der Vlist have recently completed a complex job to deliver a 90 tonne waste dryer to a waste processing site in northern Poland.At this weight, 4,1m high 14,5m long and 3,44m wide route surveys had to be completed, and focussed on bridges along the way, the route had to ensure that all bridges were passable with the total cargo height, and electric power lines had to be removed for passage through at some points, but the main issue came with a bridge close to the delivery site.

Transport ciężkiThe bridge had to be passed over to get to the site, but it was not strong enough to take the total weight. Therefore it had to be strengthened with specialist polymer injections, in order to safely pass across at the weight.

Starting at night from Gdynia port, the movement was around 100km in total to the delivery site, where the cargo was unloaded and will be used to process waste from the region.

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?
