Wine tanks to Lutzville Cape Diamond Vineyards

Target Food Target Food

During the first quarter of 2016, Target Rigging transported 12 oversized tanks measuring 19m long by 5,3m diameter from GVTec in Wellington to Lutzville Cape Diamond Vineyards. These tanks have a volume of 400,000 litres each and accordingly, were the largest tanks ever transported on Western Cape roads for the wine industry.

This whole operation had to be carefully managed from the specialised extendable trailer with steerable axles, to the Provincial Traffic officers as well as Eskom and Telkom clearances. There were two electrical cables which had to be switched off and numerous Telkom lines lifted to ensure passage of the loads.

In addition, Sanral as well as the resident engineers of the construction sections between Citrusdal and Clanwilliam on the N7 also had to be consulted to ensure access to the road. Target Rigging was responsible for the transportation and installation while D&H Cranes, an associate company of Target Rigging, was responsible for the cranage.
