This adds up to an impressive total of 96 axle lines – an amazing volume of powerful vehicles for the heaviest transport challenges!
The supply includes sixteen 6-axle modules type MSPE 6/4/2,43 EVO3 70t, and two power packs with an output of 368 kW each, providing a total payload capacity of more than 6,200t!
For Giovanni Monti, Cometto’s Head of Sales, “ANI is a nation-building commitment by the Government of Australia and sees to the establishment of state-of-the-art infrastructure for the domestic manufacture of world class naval vessels. It is an honor for Cometto to work with such a prestigious company.”
For the production of ships and submarines
“This is only the first part of a very big project by ANI” explains Alberto Di Stefano as the responsible Export Area Manager. “The complete supply will give ANI the ability to reach a total payload capacity of 10,000t, to suit production of the future generation of surface ships and submarines. Beside the impressive quality and performance of our product, the success of this partnership is further enhanced by the presence of our Australian representative, the Drake Group, which will provide ANI the after-sales service.”
First operations on-site have been done during the training sessions given by Cometto specialists. The load consists of a trestle with a weight of 90t, which will be used to carry ship structures during the production phases. The used configuration was composed by two convoys of 24 axle lines and Power Pack Unit, each in open compound.
Use of bio-degradable hydraulic oil
Another important asset of the Cometto MSPE EVO3 on this project was the decision to equip the complete fleet with bio-degradable hydraulic oil to avoid any risk of environmental contamination. The working site is located adjacent the Adelaide Dolphin Sanctuary and is subject to very strict laws that safeguard the survival of the animals and the entire area.
The MSPE EVO3 70t offers the best axle load capacity available on the market and excels thanks to the versatility in configuration and its maneuverability. A wide set of accessories is provided to meet the specific cargo requirements of ANI.
The MSPE from Cometto offers the usual interchangeability and system expandability to adapt to any future needs of the customer.
True to the Cometto motto: Propelled to the MAX!
