Linde assists extreme sporting challenge

Updated:2012-09-25 15:17:51


Linde Forklift Truck Hire is supplying forklifts for Bloodhound SSC, a project that aims to push the boundaries of science and technology by setting a new world land speed record at 1,000 mph. (1,609 km/h). The Bloodhound SSC car, powered by a Eurofighter Typhoon jet engine and a hybrid rocket, will be capable of accelerating from zero to 1,000 mph. (1,609 km/h) and back in 120 seconds.

To promote the project, Bloodhound allows sponsors to hire a full-size show car – a 13.5 m (44.2 ft.) long, 3 m (9.8 ft.) tall supersonic vehicle. It is transported in a 14 m (46 ft.) curtain-sided articulated truck, and requires a forklift to unload it from the side.
Bloodhound’s Tony Parraman says being able to rely on the forklift to "always be there to unload the car wherever we may be", takes a huge strain off the team "Not only have they undertaken to unload the show car at all our events, they are supplying a forklift for the Bloodhound Technical Centre where the car is being assembled. We also have access to one of their powered pallet trucks, which we will use to move parts of the car around the workshop." Parraman says.

Lorraine Gray, rental controller from Linde Material Handling, says finding a suitable forklift for Bloodhound was simple because the company has an extensive range of hire trucks. "This, combined with the help of our skilled drivers, ensured the show car was in safe hands."
