Cometto Deliver a new 4-axle Eco1000 to Metallic Bridges of Belgium

Located a few kilometers from the port of Antwerp, Metallic Bridges of Belgium s.a., known widely as MBB, is the Belgian specialist creating  huge bridge sections and other special metal structures. They have been creating what can be summarized as the Art of Metal for three generations.

The huge bridge sections and carpentry in general need to be moved regularly within their factory to follow the different assembly steps, and for this highly-advanced transport challenge, they have taken delivery of a new 4-axle Eco1000 self-propelled modular transporter from Cometto. MBB has chosen for the new way of driving!

Their Eco1000 from Cometto offers a payload capacity of 172 tons on a 11.6m loading platform at a loading height of 1,500 mm, including a stroke of 700 mm, all powered by an integrated Power Pack Unit.

The first jobs were immediately waiting for the new vehicle. MBB creates a structure with a total weight of 5,500 tons, a length of 208 meters and a height of 40 meters. The self-propelled modular transporter Eco1000 moved as one the first missions this 87 tons steel element from one assembly step to another.
