The height-optimised transport of wind turbine tower segments generally requires the use of special vehicle technology such as vessel decks or tower adapter combinations.
However, the use of a telescopically extendable low loader may be the most cost-effective solution, especially for the upper tower segments, usually exceeding 25 meters in length.
In this area Faymonville has developed two vehicle concepts that enable a particularly low loading height.
Based on the Twin-Axle II independent suspension or cranked axles with knuckle steering, two variants are available that enable loading heights from 730 mm in the driving position.
The centrally lowered loading platform can be supplied as a single or double telescopically extendable variant and equipped with 6 to 8 axles.
Non-slip clamps are positioned on the loading platform for the optimal accommodation of the round tower elements.
