Self-propelled heavy-load transport module (SPMT modular vehicle), with 3 - 6 axle lines.
The PowerMAX modular vehicles are the logical continuation of the proven ModulMAX concept. The heavy-load modules with hydraulically driven drive axles are the perfect solution where conventional heavy-load tractor units no longer have sufficient pulling force to move extremely heavy loads, or if the use of tractor units has to be dispensed with altogether for reasons of space.
Faymonville offers its customers two different systems, each of which can play a key role in the optimal performance of a complex transport operation.
The APMC PowerMAX, with its 3 modes
- Trailer Mode
- Assist Mode
- SPMT Mode
offers enormous flexibility and its form is unique worldwide.
The APMC proves its class in particular where transport jobs for a classic self-propelled unit are not lined up every day, but instead transport tasks with two or more tractor units have to be carried out on a regular basis. In this case the APMC bogie supplies the majority of the required pulling force with its 240 kW diesel engine, enabling some of the tractor units with their drivers and all associated operating costs to be saved.
On the other hand the APMC bogie can render its service as an entirely ‘normal’ modular bogie by being installed without any further restrictions in any desired road module combination.
The SPMC PowerMAX is the classic self-propelled unit par excellence.
With its 170 kN of pulling force per driven axle line, it offers sheer endless power. Several modules with driven axles can be powered by our high-performance powerpacks. This allows loads of several thousand tonnes to be moved safely and easily by optimally distributing the driving forces.
The operation of the SPMC system is based on a completely new user-friendly system, which displays all relevant process and transport data quickly and clearly with the aid of a clear touchscreen display. When several vehicles are connected in a group, the driver is provided immediately with a clear visual overview of the settings that have been made.
The main displays on the remote control are freely configurable. Thus each person can constantly monitor the data that is most important to him.
Interoperability of the transport modules
Apart from compatibility with Faymonville ModulMAX transport modules, the PowerMAX offers seamless interoperability with identical vehicles from other manufacturers (S-ST, G-SL).
Areas of use
PowerMAX transport modules are suitable for the transport of the following goods:
- Structural elements (steel and concrete elements)
- Industrial parts (transformers, crane-loaded goods,...)
- Pipeline elements
- Offshore structures (drilling platforms, wind turbines, platforms, pipelines)
- Ships or parts of ships
- Power station components
- Bridge elements
- Bulky goods, long materials and heavy loads
