Heavy Haulage Sectors
GKT is now an established leader in providing general transport, heavy haulage, self loading / offloading and storage solutions to logistics and construction management across a wide range of sectors such as power plant, construction, civil engineering, industrial projects and oil & gas plant construction.
With a vast range of crane equipped trucks and trailers at our disposal, we are pioneering a ‘total transport concept’ where we self load, transport and self offload cargo, thus eliminating the costly and timely use of multiple mobile cranes (in ports, at intermediate storage locations and at site).
In recent years, GKT have worked extensively in the tranportation and installation of power station components throughout Ireland. Our vast fleet of specialised tractor units and trailers, mobile cranes, coupled with our highly trained, highly experienced workforce make GKT the industy leader in providing logistical solutions to the Power Generation sector
With the emergence of wind energy as a viable solution to provide for Ireland’s future energy requirements, wind farms are becoming more widespread. The scale of wind-turbine components, which include the blades, nacelle, the tower, rotor, along with the remote and sometimes elevated location of the wind farms, can prove to be a demanding logistical operation for some, but not for GKT.
We provide haulage solutions including plant removal, transport, storage, installation for a wide variety of businesses. Our pioneering Total Transport Solution is second to none.
GKT are specialists in the transport of railway equipment throughout Ireland, UK and Europe. The image below shows 3 passenger railcars which were self loaded at a train station in Ireland, transported in convoy to Scotland, where they were off loaded and placed inside the factory entrance door.
GKT have completed many projects within the Aircraft/Airport sector, including removal and replacement of airbridges at airport terminals. Recently we transported a brand new flight simulator to Ryanair’s headquarters in Swords.
