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
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.
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.
