There is still a great need in the area of bridge renovation and counstructions in countries such as Germany.
In Reinfeld, Schleswig-Holstein, such a project is in the pipeline, for which the Hüffermann Group was able to demonstrate its expertise in heavy-duty logistics.
The concrete beam sections have a weight of 68 tons each and a length of 49.5 meters each.
After the preparation work, the transport itself has been foreseen in two steps. On the first day, the beams has been transported to an intermediate storage.
Two turntable combinations from the Cometto MSPE range are used in an open compound. Each combo includes one 6-axle and one 4-axle SPMT with Power Pack Units of 202 kW and 129 kW respectively.
The used turntable set on the self-propelled modular transporters enables to move the combination around the tightest bends and curves. The SPMT can rotate under the load. The maximum payload of such a combinatoin as used here is 250 tons per turntable.
A mix of competence
The last step of the mission was the the transport of the concrete beam sections from the storage to the highway. The combination did its job to complete satisfaction.
The whole transportation and assembly tasks were executed by the Hüffermann Group including Hüffermann Wildeshausen, Thömen Hamburg and Eisele Maintal.
