Sankyu SPMT Connects Dejima Island with Nagasaki

Sankyu connects the historical Dejima Island with the city of Nagasaki using SPMTs from Scheuerle

• Sankyu transports bridge element in the Japanese city of Nagasaki and thus connects the old town to the reconstructed Dejima Island
• Newly erected bridge acts as the main entrance to the historical trading post of Dejima

The Japanese island of Dejima was a fan-shaped, artificial island in the bay of Nagasaki. During the Edo period (1603 to 1868), it was the only place where direct trade and exchange took place between Japan and Europe. After Japan opened up in the second half of the 19th century, Dejima gradually became part of Nagasaki city centre as a result of ongoing land reclamation and was hardly recognisable in the 20th century. In the meantime, most buildings have been reconstructed using old plans and models. A canal borders the island and a bridge is used to enter the historic Dejima area. Sankyu, a long-standing customer of the TII Group (over 250 SPMT axle lines in use) and experienced in the transportation of sensitive loads, was commissioned to transport the prefabricated bridge – weighing around 50 tonnes and with a length of 40 metres – through the densely-built urban area.

“Sankyu has been relying on self-propelled transport solutions from the TII Group for a long time,” says Ralf Grützmacher, Area Manager Sales at TII Sales and responsible for the Asian markets. “Manoeuvring the 40-metre long Dejima bridge through the old town of Nagasaki requires experience and precise vehicle control. Here, our vehicles along with the Sankyu specialists have done an excellent job.”

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?
