Plant Speed, a heavy haulage and abnormal load specialist based in Bristol, recently used a Nooteboom Super Wing Carrier trailer to move turbine blades that may be the longest ever transported by road in UK history. Each blade is 68.25 metres (224 feet) long and weighs roughly 24 tonnes (26.5 U.S. tons). Plant Speed hauled them from Avonmouth Dock to Magor, a distance of 24 miles (38.6 kilometres), using 250-t (275-U.S.-t) Mercedes SLT tractor units and Nooteboom quadruple-extendable Super Wing Carrier OVB-67-03V(QP) trailers. Plant Speed currently owns three Super Wing Carriers.
