Heavy load for paper and board mill Varel

Papier- u. Kartonfabrik Varel received 3 bulk tanks (30m in length and 6m in diameter) in the night from Friday, January 12th 2018, to Saturday 13th for an expansion project of their water purifying plant. The bulk tanks were unloaded from a cargo vessel at Varel's harbour and conveyed by heavy road transport to the mill.

After reloading the containers on trucks, the heavy transport convoy made its way through the town to the mill at night. Many interested people observed the spectacle from the roadside. Due to the dimensions of the cargo, partially traffic signs had to be dismantled and traffic light arms had to be turned. Of course, this had already been organised and measured before. The containers arrived safely after the 3-hour transport at the PKV according to schedule.
