Technical evening in Ireland North educates enthusiastic crowd

24th Nov 2016
Ireland North

Attendees at the IRTE Ireland North event were treated to a technical update evening in November, including presentations from the likes of Volvo UK, Dennison Commercials, Josam Wheel Alignment and Sean Finnegan Commercials.

Transport Training Services in Dundrod was the venue for the event, which was introduced by Chairman Trevor Hassin, and began with a presentation explaining why - in relation to the Volvo Tridem - rigid chassis with alternative axle layouts are gaining ground in the UK and Ireland.

Delegates were given the opportunity to examine a new Tridem, with Dennison’s Paul and Chris Arthur fielding questions from the audience.

A practical demonstration of wheel alignment, including lane assist and setting of collision prevention aids fitted on modern trucks, was given by Josam, in association with Sean Finnegan showing the merits of modern wheel alignment equipment.

TTS finished the presentations with Martin Hutchinson displaying the history of the training facility and the enterprising plans for the future.

Following the dinner provided by TTS, Oliver Teasell from SOE answered any questions on membership and IRTE general enquiries.
