Energy Haulage gets a new Volvo FH 460

Buckinghamshire-based Energy Haulage specialise in transportation across the construction, rail and manufacturing sectors, and it believes that the new FH will expand on the firms existing lifting capabilities.

The Volvo FH, built and supplied by MV Commercial and fitted with a Cormach 6000 E6 crane, will feature alongside the company’s other Volvo which is also specified with a crane. It provides Energy Haulage with a maximum payload of 1.5 tonnes and the ability to lift 2.6 tonnes at a reach of 15.6m.

Inside, the Volvo FH has a highly specified interior, with emphasis placed on driver comfort; there’s a sleeper cabin with air-conditioning and 12v power supply for cooking facilities.

Energy Haulage has already been using it extensively since its purchase of the FH, with the firm able to rely on MV’s 20 approved workshops across the UK and Ireland.

Iain Cooksley, senior manager at Energy Haulage says: “We selected MV Commercial as our supplier, primarily because the pervious equipment we received from them has performed outstandingly. When we needed to expand, and upgrade our capabilities to carry extra weight and have a longer-reach crane, MV were our first port of call.”
