A successful partnership: BayWa is ordering 50 tankers and silo vehicles








The traditional Munich company is relying on quality "Made in Baden-Württemberg"

The BayWa energy division has taken delivery of a total of 50 vehicle units from Lindner & Fischer over the past year. In addition to 39 tank superstructures (2 and 3-axle with a gross volume of 14,000 and 20,000 litres) which had been delivered by Lindner & Fischer early in the year in conjunction with the Straubing tanker constructor Willig as part of the European call to tender awarded, 2 tanker trailers in central-axle design with a gross volume of 15,000 litres and 9 wood pellet silo vehicles (4 axles with a gross volume of 35 m³) formed part of the BayWa fleet package.

The tankers, with the exception of the tanker trailers, are all equipped with a 6-year service and full maintenance agreement. This allows BayWa a fixed magnitude of costs with regard to maintenance and wear.
In conjunction with MAN as BayWa's general supplier of complete vehicles, various different vehicle types and equipment packages were put together in order to meet every requirement in the deployment area of the new tanker generation. Through the cooperation based on partnership among all those involved (BayWa – L&F – MAN – Willig), it was possible to master the increased requirement for coordination and the complex structure of a tanker.

Equipped with leading-edge dispensing technology (Bartec 3003 Tiger measuring systems) and up to three full hoses, the vehicles are designed such as to allow their exchange among subsidiaries in case of fluctuations in capacity and demand. A very high level of coordination between both tanker manufacturers was necessary here in order to develop an operating concept that was as uniform as possible. Alfred Lindner and Andreas Gillner both agree however: this partnership between the two competitors makes goods sense in the customer's interest. "We also work together in a completely trouble-free manner as part of the service and full maintenance agreements in order to keep the standing times for BayWa as short as possible", Andreas Gillner, the managing director of Willig tankers explains to the editorial team. Alfred Lindner adds: "we benefit from our main plants in Langenau and Straubing in addition to our branches throughout Germany in that we are able to cover the entire deployment area of the BayWa fleet at short notice within reasonable journey times, even in case of service emergencies. Telephone coordination between both companies works perfectly and completely smoothly in this case".

We wish the BayWa drivers all the best at all times and a safe journey and wish BayWa consistently good and successful business with the new vehicles.
