Weight optimization


In 2014, VM Tarm a/s produced the Tank Trailer of the Future, as the result of a publicly-subsidised development project focused on reducing the tank trailer's tare weight. Read about the Tank Trailer of the Future here.
 
On a daily basis, the Tank Trailer of the Future transports milk for Arla Foods in Denmark and has so far clocked around half a million kilometres. It has just been subject to inspection, without any remarks. The tank trailer has proved its viability, even though its dimensions pushed the limits of what we believed to be possible.
 
VM Tarm a/s is continuing to work on developing weight optimisation. We have also begun to experiment with producing duplex steel tanks. This high-strength steel enables us to reduce the thickness gauge by ½-1 mm.
 
We are currently producing the first duplex steel trailer tanker for milk collection. This trailer tanker will be delivered in February 2017.
