UK Heavy Haul, the latest release from CPP, shows three very different types of abnormal load movements. The first follows the movement of a 46-metre, 170-tonne monopile from the Chepstow premises of manufacturer Mabey Bridge to the docks at Avonmouth. We see The Collett Group securing the self-supporting load aboard two modules, leaving the factory and then crossing the new Severn Bridge. Motive power is provided by two MAN four-axle prime movers, a V10-powered TGA and V8-powered TGX. There is excellent footage from inside the cab and from vantage points along the route. In the second feature the CPP team capture the marriage of the body to the chassis of a huge Komatsu 785 dump truck prior to its delivery to a busy Hanson Aggregates quarry in the Mendip Hills. This sequence shows the problems associated with carrying such a big machine along the lanes of Somerset. It is supplemented by a short but exciting few minutes in which several Komatsu 785s are seen at work in the quarry. The final story is a record of the movement of a massive 'quad-booster' from the Alstom factory in Stafford to an electricity generating station near Preston. This feature not only shows the 500-tonne combination moving over the road network but also depicts the ship-to-shore transfer of the complete vehicle from the marine vessel Terra Marique. Allely's Heavy Haulage completed the move using ballasted MAN and DAF prime movers and an enormous girder trailer.
