Flying large rotors in for fast repair
150 MW generators provide power for around 100’000 homes so minimising down-time is essential to keeping the lights on for the local population. For one power plant in the Philippines, the swift repair of a steam turbine rotor was essential, so it was airfreighted using one of the world’s largest cargo planes, to Sulzer’s service center in Indonesia, where the repairs were completed within eight weeks.

Can we learn from disc brakes on tanker trailers?

Can we learn from disc brakes on tanker trailers?
The adoption of disc brake technology for articulated trailers has been slower in the UK than the rest of Europe. With no regulations making them a requirement, many operators feel that the additional purchase and maintenance costs outweigh the potential performance gains. However, the tanker industry typically specifies disc brakes as standard. JOST examines the benefits of disc brakes and asks if other sectors of the haulage industry can learn from tanker operators.
