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.

32 modular axle lines for a project in the desert

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.

power plant components up to 190 tonnes

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 their long-standing and proven partner.

Faymonville and Universal Transport - a long-term collaboration

The 32 G-SL axle lines are the first new modular acquisitions for Universal Transport from Faymonville

In Egypt, the vehicles roll with high frequency between the respective locations. Numerous further challenges of this kind can be expected in this region in future, too.

A lot of project for renewable energy

As the renewable energy sector is also just starting to develop, it is expected that thousands of new wind turbines will be erected, and the volume of goods traffic is steadily increasing. 

Universal Transport Egypt (UTE) considers itself to be ready for these projects and can count on Faymonville as a manufacturer that can supply customized and specific transport solutions.
