The award for Nooteboom was presented by Jarco the Bruin (the commercial director of ING Lease Nederland). The judges estimated the new suspension system of MANOOVR semi low-loader. The vehicles have many advantages, such as:
- low load floor height (78 cm)
- high load capacity (12 tonnes for the European countries)
- impressive axle travel.
The number of axle lines for the trailers might be different (it varies from 3 to 10). Besides, the axles were designed with the renewed tower bearing.
All the features of the vehicles make them efficient and bring lots of advantages to the abnormal transport operators. Besides, the machinery is a perfect ratio of quality and price.
The greatest achievement of Nooteboom is the pursuit of technical innovation. The judges used the following criteria to define whether the semi low-loaders deserve an award:
- market potential
The jury observed 14 entities in total. The biggest emphasis was made on the benefit of this innovation for the users. Thus, the vehicles offer great productivity, low running costs, and low weight.
As the jury chairman claimed, Nooteboom proved the innovative character of the production and the top quality of the products.
