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 of these projects. For that reason the company has invested in 32 modular axle lines from the Faymonville G-SL series for the transport of various power plant components.
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 task is to transport arriving goods from the port in Adabiya to the building sites in New Cairo and Beni Suef, where the country’s two largest gas-fired power plants are currently under construction.
The power plant components to be transported can weigh up to 190 tonnes. This expansion into the African continent is a new challenge for Universal Transport. To overcome it, the company is relying on Faymonville as its long-standing and proven partner.
