Universal Transport operating in Egypt with Faymonville modules

The development of the Egyptian energy sector is currently in full swing and the Paderborn-based heavy haulage specialist Universal Transport is heavily involved in the handling these projects. Furthermore, the operator has recently invested in 32 modular axle lines from the Faymonville G-SL series.

They make up the modular vehicle fleet with which the newly founded Universal Transport Egypt (UTE) will initially accompany two major projects in the coming months. The projects will involve transporting goods from the port of Adabiya to the building sites in New Cairo and Beni Suef: where two of the countries largest gas-fired power plants are currently under construction. The power plant components weigh up to 190 tonnes.

The African continent expansion is a fresh challenge for Universal Transport, and the operator is reliant on their long-standing and proven partner, Faymonville. The 32 G-SL axle lines are the first new modular acquisitions for Universal Transport from Faymonville.

As the renewable energy sector is also just starting to develop, it also expects thousands of new wind turbines to be erected: and the volume of goods traffic to steadily increase.

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?
