Wallenborn expands its Outsize Fleet

As our Outsize business continues to grow, Wallenborn takes delivery of a new trailer with powered rollerbed equipped with a Hydraroll system.


Luxembourg, 25.09.2018

Our new custom built trailer is considered a mega flatbed engine carrier equipped with a Hydraroll powered rollerbed and winch enabling us to transport any kind of aircraft engine that requires loading/offloading with a powered rollerbed (Trent Engine Series). Only a handful of European transport providers can offer this service.

The Trent Engine Series powers aircrafts such as the Airbus A330 (Trent 700), Airbus A340 (Trent 500), Airbus A350 XWB (Trent XWB), Airbus A380 (Trent 900), Boeing 777 (Trent 800), and Boeing 787 Dreamliner (Trent 1000). With the powered rollerbed system we can transfer the engine directly from the aircraft to the truck using a high-loader.

The trailer is equipped with 6 powered cargo roller (PCR) units which, together with the winch provide more than enough strength and ability to safely move even the heaviest of engines. The PCR units are located in the center of the trailer floor, situated in all three sections of the floor, and 2 pneumatic palletstops are also positioned at the rear of the trailer for maximum security.

Wallenborn has fixed transport licenses for the world's largest aircraft engines in Belgium, France, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark, Norway and specific routes in Germany and Great Britain. We have developed our own “Engine Handling Procedures” for each engine type and also maintain a record of all shipments through the “Engine Check Lists”. Further services and capabilities include:

  • Dedicated engine / XXL team with 24/7 coverage
  • Customised, multi-lingual training program for AC engine transports
  • Wallenborn supervision provided at all major cargo airports
  • Dedicated  engine carrier fleet on which larger engines can also be transported as “secured cargo” in order to maintain a high security status
  • Certified strapping equipment on all engine carriers (5 ton & 10 ton straps) and chains where needed
