Fuels make the world go round. We help you carry them around
Oil & gas are not a resource unless they are extracted, refined, channelled and distributed. To carry them from (and to) the most remote locations, thousands of kilometers of pipelines must be constructed– crossing borders, climbing over mountains, spanning through different climate zones. In doing so, any kind of terrain and obstacle is encountered. Building these infrastructures is one of the most difficult jobs on the planet – and this is why they call us.
ASTRA machines are designed to travel and operate in the most unfavorable weather, driving the worst off-road tracks.
Ample radiator surfaces and additional heat exchangers make engines withstand even the highest temperatures – while special cables can be adopted for extreme cold. A driver-commanded tire inflation system and large-diameter wheels and extra-long wheelbases maximize floatability, grip and manoeuvering on soft surfaces. Extra-long wheelbases up to more than 6.000mm are feasible because of the high robustness of the chassis frame, to transport pipeline and drilling shaft wherever. Snorkels and high-efficiency air filters make work possible in water, mud and sand.
Optional features include fully automatic or manual with torque converter gearbox solutions, Webasto cabin heating pack and cab pressurization to protect the crew from temperature and dust.
Drive configurations are available up to 8×8 (including HHD version 2,9 m) wide for full traction and control also on irregular and slippery ground.
