Cometto SPMT as relocation helper for Wiesbauer

A 14-axle combination loaded with a 42 metre-long derrick mast.

One job always follows another. That was also the case for the Liebherr LR11000 crawler crane belonging to the Wiesbauer company, which had to be relocated within the Rugendorf wind farm. Cometto MSPE self-propelled vehicles were used for this task.

A total of four wind turbines make up a wind farm of the latest generation in Upper Franconia. In the handling of this project, the crawler crane was disassembled after the erection of a wind turbine and assembled again at the next location.

For this task, Wiesbauer used its Cometto MSPE self-propelled modular transporters in a 14-axle combination, onto which the 42 metre-long derrick mast with a dead weight of 60 tonnes was loaded.

SPMT self-propelled modular transporter as faster solution

"The time saving that we achieved was the reason we chose this means of transport," says the company’s director Jochen Wiesbauer about this important stage. It was the faster solution compared to other transport options and the relocation of the crane was thus accelerated.

The combination proceeded at walking speed and formed a big yellow spot in the green landscape. "The Cometto vehicles impress with their flexibility and manoeuvrability," says a satisfied Jochen Wiesbauer, because there were quite a few tight bends along the route.

The Cometto self-propelled transport vehicles are a profitable solution for his company. A total of 20 Cometto MSPE axle lines with an axle load of 48 tonnes and two power pack units with an output of 202 kW each belong to the permanent vehicle fleet and are regularly used for a wide variety of jobs.
