Word about this investment has quickly spread, because there are also already initial jobs from outside of the works site.
A gigantic crane beam from Kranbau Köthen was standing waiting at the heavy load terminal in the port of Aken on the Elbe. The historic port with stationary crane equipment for up to 270 tonnes enables a combined transhipment of up to 600 tonnes. The trimodal mass transhipment for the relief of the road is exemplified here.
The 4-axle Eco1000 Long Frame from the Rosslauer Schiffswerft was used for this transport. The positioning of the 140-tonne freight was of the utmost importance, because the beam had a considerable length of 58.6 metres. Accordingly, it protruded beyond the loading platform by 21.78 metres on one side and 25.17 metres on the other. An unusual requirement for man and machine.
"Due to the high centre of gravity and the payload capacity of the Cometto self-propelled vehicle, particular attention had to be paid to the transverse inclination of the Eco1000 during the journey", said Cometto's sales manager Joachim Kolb, describing one of the challenges. "The driver, Thomas Bräuer, was helped by the automatic level control, allowing him to take a more relaxed approach to the whole thing." With the necessary fine touch on the joystick of the remote control, the professional accordingly covered the transport route safely.
"Thanks to the vehicle DWG drawings from Cometto, we were able to plan the transport at leisure in the office on the CAD system", said Jonas Hohmann, Production Manager at RSW, describing the smooth preparation. "The examination and representation of the transport job and the design of the loading aids were the prerequisites for being able to implement something so special without stress. This way we arrived at the job site ideally prepared." Exactly … propelled to the MAX!
