Ariane 5 Component

Serving the astronautic industry, German based WeiLa Transport were appointed to transport a 5.9m (L) x 5.9m (W) x 3.7m (H) component for the Ariane 5 Heavy Launcher. 

Loaded to a specialist trailer with hydraulic lift table the component would undertake the three day journey from point of manufacture in Germany through to final delivery in France.

Manufactured in Augsburg, Southern Germany, this 11 Tonne module required delivery to Les Mureaux, 40km west of Paris, to the Airbus Defence and Space's central directorates.

Travelling under German Police Escort the convoy left the Augsburg manufacturing facility loaded with the delicate cargo and began its three day journey to Les Mureaux.  After crossing the Germany/France border WeiLa Transport were joined by two Escort cars and two private motorcycles to ensure a smooth transport to the final delivery destination.

Arianespace's Ariane 5 is the world reference for Heavy-Lift Launchers, able to carry payloads weighing more than 10 metric tonnes to geostationary orbit and over 20 metric tonnes into low-Earth orbit.
