Client: Burg Trailer Service
Location: Pijnacker, Netherlands
Year: 1996
Surface: 2700 m2
Material: Twaron and Carbonfiber
Specifics: Lightweight composite trailer saves fuel and can takes more load: The solution for global road transportation!

We have made a large number of lightweight composite truck trailers / semi-trailers. All of them had a composite chassis, composite side walls and a composite floor. The composite materials used are a combination of epoxy resin or carbon with fibers, such as glass fibers.

With composite material it is possible to make strong constructions with relatively light weight.

The weight of the composite trailer is therefore only 6 tons. An example: a comparable aluminum trailer weights 8 to 9 tons. And a conventional steel / metal trailer has a much higher weight.

Due to the large weight savings, the fuel consumption per transported load decreases enormously, resulting in a reduction of emissions of, among other things, particulate matter and CO2.

Also thanks to the lower weight, a larger load is possible compared to conventional steel trailers. For example, if the trailer is 4 tons lighter, it may load 4 tons more weight (up to the European standard of maximum load).

The difference can be up to 15% more cargo per trip. And that also means 15% fewer trucks that have to drive to transport the same amount of material. For the transport company this can result in cost savings of up to 20%, due to the reduction in costs for the trailers, insurance, working hours and fuel.

Composite material is free of corrosion and therefore has a longer life than steel. In addition, composite insulates much better, so the composite trailers are also extremely suitable as refrigerated vehicles that use less cool energy compared to conventional refrigerated vehicles.

"Tocardo is a Dutch company and world leader in tidal energy solutions, using the power of the sea as a sustainable source of energy, with the regularity of the clock: ebb, flow, ebb, flood that is our goal." Our turbines must be able to resist the forces of the sea and therefore have to be extremely strong. Besides the strength it’s all about ROI and efficiency, so the shape and design of the blades are crucial for the success of our turbines that have to perform day after day with minimal maintenance. Holland Composites is our preferred supplier when it comes to the tidal blades of the turbines." Hans van Breugel, CEO Tocardo Tidal Power
