Goldhofer modules employed on the Kuala Lumpur Metro construction project
Xin Hwa Holdings was founded in 1965 and is now one of the leading transport companies in Malaysia, with a subsidiary operating in Singapore. The logistics services provider has won a contract to deliver components to Kuala Lumpur’s prestigious MRT construction project. Work on the network for the Malaysian capital, which will include an underground line, began in 2011. On completion, which is scheduled for 2021, the new mass raid train network will form the backbone of the city’s public transport system and will link the existing rail network with the Klang Valley Integrated Transit System.
Xin Hwa has been contracted to deliver a large number of huge concrete beams weighing up to 160 tons each to various MRT construction sites as of next year. The company will be using a Goldhofer vehicle combination ordered specially for the purpose from the German world market leader for heavy-duty road haulage and oversized cargo transportation. The order comprises more than a hundred THP/SL axle lines and additional spacer. The THP/SL vehicle combination with the extendable spacers is the ideal solution for transporting very long concrete beams. The THP/SL – one of the absolute classics in the heavy-haulage industry – offers big advantages in terms of flexibility for on-road and inside-plant operations and on construction sites.
