Goldhofer reports strong results from the US and Canadian markets.

The German heavy and specialized trailer manufacturer claims to be the leader of the North American market in the field of heavy duty transportation equipment for specific industries, such as off-road, ofishore and wind power projects. A new and upcoming market will be the Super Load segment in highway transportation, for which Goldhofer introduced the new THP/DL dual lane hydraulic modular platform trailer (see Site report, page 40).

The standard THP range of modular trailers, in either 9, 10 or 12 feet widths, are mainly used for ofi-road power, chemical and heavy construction projects. Especially in the US, PST trailer modules are fitted to the THP to turn a trailer in to a self-propelled one. Goldhofer took that development a step further by introducing the PST/SL-E, the completely self-propelled version of their most successful modular SL-type in the THP range that also features multi-directional electronic (E) steering.

US specialized hauling contractors Berard and Barnhart were the first companies to purchase the PST/SL-E. The multi-directional steering has been favored by the offshore and shipbuilding industries but, increasingly, finds its way in to other fields. Another growing market is wind power. Goldhofer designed specific tools and trailers to carry all turbine components and even speed up crawler crane relocation on the job site to minimize crucial down time.
