Buiscar has delivered skeletal trailers for the new Viau terminal at the Port of Montreal.
Viau is the new facility Termont Montréal Inc. is developing to double its container handling capacity at the Port of Montreal to over 1M TEU per annum. Termont tasked Buiscar with supplying trailers for both Viau and its existing Maisonneuve terminal that can perform optimally in the harsh climate of Montreal, where winter temperatures can reach -30 degrees Celsius.
Termont’s customer specific requirements were set by Mr. Simon Bourque, Strategic Buyer at Termont. They included Skeletal trailers with a load capacity of 70 tons to transport containers up to 45 feet .
“Our Skeletal trailers are developed for multifunctional use so they are constructed solidly which makes all kinds of work possible,” said Buiscar. The base of the trailers are the main beams, which are made of S355JSG3 high tensile steel. “The cross beams are, like all other parts of the construction, of hot rolled steel. All connections are mixed gas welded according to NEN-EN 287 and ASME standards for a sturdy construction, Busicar added.
Busicar has now supplied over 30 units to Termont. “The Buiscar company is pleased we were able to customise our proven quality trailers to the wishes of Termont Montréal Inc. and trust they can carry many TEU at the old and new container terminal,” Buiscar concluded.
