A Question and Answer session conducted by Sergey Ovsienko (Managing Director/Owner) of Beluga Project Logistics.

Beluga Projects Logistic is a relatively new company in the Heavy Project handling market in Russia, but since 5 years have shown a steady growth and completed some very challenging projects, amongst others the barging and land transport from the far North of Russia (Siberia) to the middle of the country of a 1300 tons reactor.

The first leg of the journey by Beluga’s own newly invested flat top barges (5 Damen Barges of various sizes), then followed by the loading onto Hydraulic Platform Trailers by Beluga’s Enerpac’s SBL1100 Hydraulic gantries (3 sets are owned by Beluga).

Finally oncarriage to the jobsite by means of a set of Conventional Scheuerle Platform Trailers and Faymonville SelfPropelled SPT type trailers.

Testimonial from Beluga Projects Logistic

Dear Richard,

Thank you for coming to Moscow and sharing your knowledge with my team and partners.

Thousandth KAMAG K24 axle line delivered to the Sarens Group

The Sarens Group, based in Wolvertem, Belgium, has a workforce of around 4,000 employees and is recognized as one of the giants of the special transportation industry. “Better safe than sorry” is one of the maxims of this globally operating company. In order to meet this requirement as well as ensuring that the quality promises it gives to its customers can be kept, the enterprise needs safe and reliable equipment. Sarens therefore relies on theK24 modular transporter from KAMAG. With the delivery of the thousandth axle line on 27th June 2013, the focus was not on looking back but instead on the future.

 “The world is our market and it is precisely here – namely, across the globe – that we want to continue to steadily grow. We are on the way up. Nothing is too heavy or too high for us”, said Ludo Sarens, President of the Board. “Having reliable vehicles at our disposal is the most important thing as we have to rely 100 % on our equipment. Those who want to be at the forefront of our business cannot afford to have any breakdowns or malfunctions; therefore, we continue to strengthen our fleet with KAMAG modular transporters”, added Sarens. In particular, integrating KAMAG Transport technique in the TII Group, the recognized world leader in heavy-duty vehicles, provides the required framework for ensuring reliable delivery and a long-term partnership between Sarens and KAMAG.

30 years of SPMT (Self Propelled Modular Transporter) from SCHEUERLE – over 8,000 axle lines keep the world in motion

 News, Transport  Comments Off on 30 years of SPMT (Self Propelled Modular Transporter) from SCHEUERLE – over 8,000 axle lines keep the world in motion
Jun 272013
 

30 years ago, the first SCHEUERLE SPMT was developed and delivered to a company that is today the world’s leading provider of heavy transport and lifting –  Mammoet in the Netherlands.In this 30-year period, SPMT has written transportation history. 

The management of SCHEUERLE and Mammoet as well as the management and owners of TII Sales and TII Group met at Pfedelbach to celebrate the 30th birthday of the SCHEUERLE Self-Propelled Modular Transporter (SPMT).

The management of SCHEUERLE and Mammoet as well as the management and owners of TII Sales and TII Group met at Pfedelbach to celebrate the 30th birthday of the SCHEUERLE Self-Propelled Modular Transporter (SPMT).

In this respect, Mammoet has been the initiator: if the 2,012 axle lines purchased by Mammoet with a total loading capacity of around 100,000 t were coupled together one after the other, then the 330 m high Rose Tower in Dubai – one of the tallest buildings in the world – could be loaded nine times over. Worldwide, more than 8,000 SPMT axle lines from Scheuerle are in regular use, an impressive fleet of vehicles that “moves the world”.

No other transport vehicle has revolutionized the world of heavy transport in such a way as the SPMTfrom SCHEUERLE. Even the product name “SPMT”, the result of joint considerations between Mammoet and SCHEUERLE, has long established itself as the general term used for self propelledmodular transport vehicles of the highest payload class complete with electronic multi-mode steering.Jan Kleijn, CEO of Mammoet, also proudly looks back at what has been achieved together: “Over the years, a very close, partnership-like relationship has developed between SCHEUERLE and Mammoet.As in all areas of life, here too the basis of a good relationship is trust – trust in the technology, product quality, service and technical advice. This has also contributed to the fact that today Mammoet is theworldwide leader in the transportation of heavy loads. In the project phase over 30 years ago, a number of heavy-duty vehicle manufacturers were consulted. We opted here for the most competent partner.”

Jan Klejn, CEO at Mammoet and Otto Rettenmaier, owner of the TII Group, cut the birthday cake for the 30th Birthday of the SCHEUERLE Self-Propelled Modular Transporter (SPMT). In the background: Herman Smit, COO at Mammoet and Fabian Weingart, member of the Rettenmaier family.

During the evolution of the SPMT – in the meantime, vehicles of the fourth generation are in use -SCHEUERLE itself has also developed further. As part of the global market leader TII Group, the Pfedelbach-based company belongs to a group of companies that combines 335 years of experience inthe heavy transport sector. This provides a broad portfolio and synergies from procurement through toservice which benefit the customer. “The most important consideration for us is to offer reliable products that meet the needs of our customers,” according to Susanne Rettenmaier, a member of the TII Group management board. “Mammoet shows what can be achieved with our vehicles.”

Mammoet and SCHEUERLE celebrated their joint success on 26.06.2013 in Pfedelbach, the birthplace of the SPMT. Otto Rettenmaier, who acquired SCHEUERLE in 1988 and subsequently integrated the business into his TII Group in 1994, was also present on the occasion of this milestone anniversary.”Today, we look back at a joint success story stretching back over 30 years. This is not only a cause for celebration but also an incentive not to rest on our laurels. Close proximity to the customer will also be our priority in the future”, said the Heilbronn multi-entrepreneur.

Egyptian Transportation & Logistics SAE  “ETAL” executed the transportation of 6 Trafos from two Red Sea ports to the Giza North Power Station.

Due to the size and weight of the trafos (146.5 tons each and Lxwxh=7.42×4.31×5.10 m) the transportation feasibility was studied in detail by the ETAL team of engineers. It proofed that the only way to get the Trafos to the job site, involved partly barging over the Nile river from the Tibin jetty to the Khatatba jetty and finally on carriage to the job site.  For details see pictures below:

From there on, the heavy transport went over land and had to cross over a number (9-10) long bridges. A special method was engineered, in which part of the load on the Hydraulic Platform trailer was placed on large skid beams. In this way the long bridges were safely crossed. See pictures below:

Two Ship Unloader cranes moved from Poland to Eemshaven by Wagenborg

 News, Shipping, Transport  Comments Off on Two Ship Unloader cranes moved from Poland to Eemshaven by Wagenborg
Mar 252013
 

-8° Celsius, 2 times 925 tonnes

Cranes… We work with them every day. Sometimes for weeks in a row on one location, sometimes on more than one location per day. But we also transport cranes, and not just our own. The fact that also this is daily routine, cannot be better expressed than by the busy schedule of Wagenborg Barge 9; one day unloading STS-container cranes in sunny Tenerife, the next day straight off to cold and icy Stettin, Poland for the next job. And on the Polish quayside two cranes stood ready to be loaded…

P1140152 (Large)Two SUL (Ship Unloader) cranes, 925 tons each, 80 meters wide, towering 55 meters up in the sky, stood ready for future deployment at the newly built RWE Power Plant in Eemshaven. In Stettin the two giants were loaded onto the barge by means of a skidding system. Given that there was no tidal movement in the port of Stettin, this operation could be executed quickly and without any delays.

IMG_1420 (Large)

Once the two cranes were safely lashed and secured, the voyage towards Eemshaven could start. No shortcuts could be taken due to the size of the cranes, so the Danish peninsula had to be circumvented before heading homewards.
