Van der Vlist Deliver 162m Tower Sections to Brighton

Van der Vlist Deliver 162m Tower Sections to Brighton

Van der Vlist

Van der Vlist have recently been helping with sections for a new 162m high tower in the southern UK city of Brighton.

The job involved moving tower sections for the Brighton i360 tower, at up to 12m long and 66,5 tonnes, they varied in diameter- from 3,9m up to 4,5m meaning that although low loaders were suitable for the smallest, vessel bridge trailers were required for movement of the largest ones, to make the transport height as low as possible.

In total 17 of the tower sections needed to be moved from Roermond, firstly to Ijsselstein to have some work done, and then on to Krimpen aan den Ijssel, from where they will be able to move onwards to the UK, and will be constructed on the waterfront site, which is expected to be completed and open to the public in the summer of 2016.

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?
