14 tanks in 3 nights
For more than 111 years Beer has been brewed at the Früh Brewery in Cologne. For this purpose in the summer of 2020, COLONIA Spezialfahrzeuge brought 14 new tanks to the company. Each of them weighs 13.5 tonnes and has a diameter of 5.63 metres. The transport led from Niehler harbour about ten kilometres along Industriestraße to the brewery. The specialist for heavy-duty transport used two tractor units and two 2-axle low-bed semi-trailers with BPW axles. Special cranes were then used to raise the tanks in a tandem lift and place them in the brewery. Although it was August, the weather was lousy: storms and rain presented the team with special challenges – but after three nights it was done.
