Tuesday morning 7 August is the day: the biggest transport from the history of Bemo Rail is a fact!
The spectacle attracts dozens of interested people. They are present on Tuesday morning to see how shunting locomotive ‘Tata Steel 331’ at Bemo Rail is being lifted on a 36-meter long low loader trailer, to take a complicated route to Tata Steel IJmuiden. At 10.25 am the elaborately prepared convoy leaves with two drivers and five road attendants from the factory site at the Debbemeerweg to leave Warmenhuizen via the east.
The seven members of Mammoet’s transport team are well prepared and certainly do not speak of a routine job: “We do not do this kind of trips every day. Weeks of preparation have preceded.”
Without any problems, the convoy finally arrives at Tata Steel.
