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)” »

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

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.
