This new bespoke tanker joins the Inver Energy UK delivery fleet deployed by Turners Transport in Cardiff and is used exclusively on the Inver Energy haulage contract.
The truck was manufactured by Williams Tanker Services utilising a proven baffle and vessel design, LAG construction method. These modifications within the truck design offer technical excellence as the vessel construction requires only three circumference welds to achieve the vessel’s overall length. It also eliminates inter-compartment or external weld joints, ensuring zero vessel leakage.
Direct shock loading from the suspension into the road trailer is eliminated via suspension and axle components mounted on a self-supporting sub frame carried from the tank’s mounting cradles. It also optimises the suspension spring centre for roll stability and overall height. All of the tanker’s suspension components are bolted for ease of maintenance and after-market supply.
This new design garners a maximum legal payload – 30,500 kgs at 44 tonne – with a further enhancement in that the tanker is designed for the maximum 46 tonnes where permissible.
“These bespoke modifications have made our transport capabilities more efficient. It allows us to make a more competitive offering to our customers and helps reduce our daily carbon footprint,” said Inver’s commercial director, Tony Wilson.
“Our clients continue to benefit from the ongoing partnership between Turners and Williams Tankers/LAG,” added Paul Preston Turner’s general manager. “The acquisition of the new LAG bespoke Inver trailer for the Inver Energy UK contract demonstrates how utilising leading equipment can benefit our clients.”
