16th Dec 2016, KOG Transport has coordinated the delivery of a 48-tonne THF recovery plant unit from Basel, Switzerland to Patrica in Italy via the Gotthard road tunnel.

The unit, which measured 22 m long by 4.5 m wide and 4 m high, with the equipment of low height platform trailer, was transported by road through the 17 km long tunnel, which has a height limit of just 4.5 m.

KOG arranged for the oversize piece to be moved on a flatbed trailer with telescopic chassis, accompanied by a support vehicle and police escort.

Due to the size of the unit the transport had to take place at night, with the entire journey – which totalled about 1,000 km – spanning around six nights.

KOG in Switzerland was contracted by Sulzer to deliver the recovery plant unit, which is used to bind solvents in a production process.
