The Tank Trailer of the Future is 28% lighter
On Friday, 11 April 2014, VM Tarm a/s presented its Tank Trailer of the Future - a four-axle 41,500-litre pressure tank with 3 rooms, and the opportunity for sub-loads in all rooms.
 
Compared to its competitors, the tank trailer is the lightest in the market and weight-optimised in all aspects to an own weight of just 6,800 kg.
 
"From the start, the project's aim was a weight reduction by 15%, but the result of 28%, as well as the option of a payload of more than 40 tonnes, with the current weight limit of 54 tonnes in total, far exceeds our expectations," says former technical manager Brian M. Andersen, who adds: "The project is the result of a clear objective to be a market-leading supplier of tankers based on future-proof solutions of high quality."
 
In the near future, the Tank Trailer of the Future will be tested for the tough life on the road, pulled by a new Volvo FH made available by Autohuset Vestergaard.
 
For further information on the Tank Trailer of the Future, please do not hesitate to contact technical manager Sune Boelskifte (sb@vmtarm.dk) on tel. no.: +45 97 37 16 44.

VM Tarm a/s presents the Tank Trailer of the Future

During the past year, VM Tarm a/s has worked intensively on developing the Tank Trailer of the Future and is now ready to present a prototype on 11 April 2014.
 
The project has receive financial support from the Danish Environmental Protection Agency, with strong focus on reducing the tank trailer's own weight, and equivalently increasing the load capacity.
 
"The project has been a resounding success, but has also presented some challenges along the way. The result meets all our expectations and we are now looking forward to presenting the result on 11 April 2014,” says Brian M. Andersen, former technical manager at VM Tarm a/s. "With our prototype, we want to show, among other things, how new materials can be used that were previously very little used within road transport."
 
During the project, VM Tarm a/s was supported by a large number of partners, including SAF Danmark; Volvo, represented by Autohuset Vestergaard; and SSAB (Svensk Stål a/s), who will also attend the presentation.
