Step by step for a 750 tons deckhouse on a Cometto SPMT

Shipbuilding process is like a puzzle. One by one, the elements come together to form a finished ship.

A major part is the deckhouse and for a project in South Korea, such a huge piece is moved on Cometto self-propelled modular transporters SPMT for the different steps of the manufacturing process.  

The location of the transport is the “DaeBul Industrial Complex” in Yeongam located in the South Jeolla Province. In total, 36 axle lines have been assembled to pick up the 750 tons load. The combination is composed of 18 axle lines of Cometto MSPE EVO2 and one Power Pack Unit belonging to our customer DaeMyung Crane, the other 18 ones plus PPU come from Mokpo Newport Terminal.

The DaeHan Shipbuilding subcontracted the ship deckhouse to Yuil company and DaeMyung Crane realises the transport mission of the 40 meters long deckhouse for Yuil. When the 25 meters high deckhouse was finished at Yuil’s factory, DaeMyung moves it about 100 meters for paint work using the 36 axles of Cometto MSPE EVO2 and two Power Pack Units. After this step, DaeMyung transports the completed deckhouse with a width of 24 meters for the distance of about two kilometers to ship it at the port of Mokpo in DaeBul Industrial Complex.
