The 6-axle vehicle has an integrated Power Pack Unit, which results in a very compact design.
With a loading deck length of 11,600 mm, Rubiera will use it to move different loads within its daily production work. This Eco1000 has a width of only 2,430 mm, which makes it very maneuverable within factory sites. The loading height of 1,500 mm can be adapted thanks to the 700 mm stroke of the proven pendle-axle technology. Finally, 264 tons of payload capacity allow Rubiera to add an effective transport solution for its in-plant moves to the fleet.
Cooling container and ingots on the Eco1000
Some first missions have been handled successfully. A slow cooling container has been loaded on a specific pallet and the inside content is a multi-faced ingot of 130 tons. The total weight of this cargo loaded on the self-propelled modular transporter Eco1000 reaches 175 tons. Another mission is the transport of two round hot ingots with a weight of 63 tons carried on a refractory base of a slow cooling container. These items with a special loading structure weigh approximately 98 tons altogether.
