The Airbus A380 is the world’s first full double-deck passenger aircraft, a ground-breaking design in aviation history. A revolution in aircraft design, the Airbus A380 is the word’s largest passenger airliner. With room for more than 500 passengers, a tail as high as an eight-story building, and a wingspan nearly the length of a football field, this massive commercial airliner is a game changer. But it’s also a big gamble for Lufthansa. Take flight on this mighty plane’s maiden journey from Frankfurt, Germany to San Francisco, California as they try to win over customers and maximize profits. If the flight is successful, this Airbus may force other airlines to go big or go home.

Airbus A380 je prvi putnicki avion na dva sprata. Može da primi preko 500 putnika, razmak krila mu je preko 100 metara, tacnije vece od jednog fudbalskog igralista, visina repa mu je kao zgrada od 8 spratova… Zato ga smatramo za jednim od najvecih putnickih aviona na svetu…

The new 500 tonne capacity TZM500 all terrain crane built by Taiyuan Heavy Industry being unveiled to employees at the factory in Shanxi Province on 12 October 2013

The first unit of the TZM500 was completed and displayed to employees at the factory on 12 October. Target applications listed by the manufacturer include wind power, petrochemical and civil engineering industries.

TYHI said it has begun manufacturing other cranes for civil construction, including 660 tonne capacity lattice boom crawler cranes, the 1,200 tonne capacity TZT1200 crawler telescopic and 1,200 tonne capacity TZM1200 wheeled mobile telescopic cranes. The news follows the first application of the company’s 6,400 tonne capacity super heavy lifting gantry tower (IC August 2013, page 8) on the Lu An electric heating oil project in China.

Biggest-ever load transported on Britain’s roads weighing more than a SPACE SHUTTLE crawls to destination at 4mph

  • Giant transformer and specialised transporter vehicle weighs 640 tonnes – more than a space shuttle
  • In total it is 100m long and 5m wide and took up two lanes of the motorway to Avonmouth Docks in Bristol
  • Vehicle caused 13-mile long tailbacks when it wound its way along the M4 at a 4mph crawl
  • The trip took nine months to plan and is the biggest logistical challenge of its type attempted in the UK
The generator transformer is the second and largest of three being removed from Didcot power station as part of its decommissioning programme

Allseas to Build Vessel Larger Than ‘Pieter Schelte’

 News, Offshore  Comments Off on Allseas to Build Vessel Larger Than ‘Pieter Schelte’
Nov 152013
 

Swiss-based Allseas has decided to build a second single-lift platform installation and decommissioning vessel.

PieterSchelteArtistImpressionThe new vessel, larger than Pieter Schelte, can remove all platform topsides in the North Sea which are beyond the capability of Pieter Schelte.

Besides decommissioning, the vessel is designed for worldwide installation of very large topsides. The topsides lift capacity will be 72,000 metric tons, exceeding the capacity of Allseas’ Pieter Schelte by 50%.

The vessel will have a width of 160 m (525 ft), whereas Pieter Schelte is 124 m (406 ft) wide. Continue reading “Allseas to Build Vessel Larger Than ‘Pieter Schelte’” »

20 KONE Cranes transported on 16 axle lines of Scheuerle SPMT’s in Gdynia Port

Gdynia Port Technical Company S.A. handles large order for Kone Cranes with the help of 16 SCHEUERLE SPMT axle lines

Preparing the connecting frame and the load supports - 16 SCHEUERLE SPMT axle lines in use

Preparing the connecting frame and the load supports – 16 SCHEUERLE SPMT axle lines in use

Just how important it is for companies to organize their on-site transports both safely and efficiently is demonstrated by the example of the Gdynia Port Technical Company S.A., Poland. Currently, a large order for Kone Cranes, Finland, is being processed there. However, this would not have been feasible without the use of SCHEUERLE SPMTs.

Twenty loading cranes (Automated Stacking Cranes) are to be assembled on the harbour area and then loaded onto a ship for delivery to GCT Global Container Terminals Inc. in New Jersey, USA. For this, the SPMTs have been connected to each other by means of a specially-constructed frame in order to safely accommodate the loads and thus making a reorientation of the vehicles when changing loads unnecessary. Particularly challenging was the high centre of gravity of the load during transportation from the assembly point to the loading area.

High centre of gravity: the electronic control system of the SCHEUERLE SPMTs also mastered this challenge without any problems.

High centre of gravity: the electronic control system of the SCHEUERLE SPMTs also mastered this challenge without any problems.

With around 25 metres high and 32 metres wide, the loading cranes are already a tricky transportation task in themselves. Particularly awkward, however, is the high centre of gravity of approx. 13 metres above the bottom edge of the load.

Here, the SCHEUERLE SPMT could fully utilize its precisely adjustable electronic control. Fortunately, the wind conditions were favourable for the first transport of five cranes which was successfully completed and loading could take place without incident. For this operation, the loading cranes were “folded” whereby the length was reduced from 30 to 15 metres.

Cost-effective through technological superiority – the SCHEUERLE SPMT

High loading capacity, easy to couple, technically advanced and can be combined with the world’s largest fleet of electronically-steered self-propelled modular transporters. SPMTs from SCHEUERLE not only make a good impression during transport operations but also when taking their economic efficiency during use into consideration.

The crane looks to be well set up

The 50 tonne Grove GMK3050 had its five section 38 metre main boom fully extended and at an angle of around 30 degrees or so. It is equipped with 9.6 tonnes of its 11.6 tonnes maximum counterweight and in this configuration should have a capacity in the region of two tonnes or so.  Continue reading “Another one for the trees: Crane Tipped” »

Mammoet transports huge coke drums for Chevron on SCHEUERLE SPMT (Self-Propelled Modular Transporter)

 News, Transport  Comments Off on Mammoet transports huge coke drums for Chevron on SCHEUERLE SPMT (Self-Propelled Modular Transporter)
Nov 072013
 

A total of six coke drums for the Chevron El Segundo Refinery were replaced by Chevron to help ensure the continued operation of the refinery.

Two coke drums safely transported on twelve lines of SCHEUERLE SPMT.  In order to avoid repositioning the SPMTs between different freights, to match the length of the column and to ease mechanical stress on the load, spacers between the vehicles are used.

Two coke drums safely transported on twelve lines of SCHEUERLE SPMT. In order to avoid repositioning the SPMTs between different freights, to match the length of the column and to ease mechanical stress on the load, spacers between the vehicles are used.

The massive new drums traveled 7,330 miles from Spain to the Port of Los Angeles. Twelve axle lines of SCHEUERLE SPMT, connected with a suitable spacer, did a great job handling the bulky load.  The new drums will be installed in the same location within the refinery, replacing the current drums, which are nearing the end of their useful life.

The coke drums arrived at California’s Port of Los Angeles from Spain and were transported, two at a time over the course of three weeks via a barge into the Redondo King Harbor Marina. The drums were offloaded at King Harbor by using twelve axle lines of SCHEUERLE SPMT and afterwards transported to a second staging area located on the corner of Herondo Street and West Pacific Coast Highway near the El Segundo Refinery on the SCHEUERLE SPMT. The drums are very large in size, 100 feet in length, 28 feet in diameter and approximately 250 tons each.  Continue reading “Mammoet transports huge coke drums for Chevron on SCHEUERLE SPMT (Self-Propelled Modular Transporter)” »
