Historical Ship: The Halas 71 Moved with PowerMAX from Faymonville

The Halas 71 was built in 1914 by the Fairfield Shipping in Glasgow as a passenger ferry. Its dimensions are 52m length and a weight of 400tons. She is now available for private charters in the turquoise water of the Southern and Western coasts of Turkey. Turkish Transport company Caba used the self-propelled heavy-load transport module PowerMAX from Faymonville to move this impressive ship in the port.

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. Apart from compatibility with Faymonville ModulMAX transport modules, the PowerMAX offers seamless interoperability with identical vehicles from other manufacturers.

Announcement

HeavyTorque White Logo

It is with regret, that the HeavyTorque team have decided to take a stand based on an industry-wide ‘blind eye’ to the waste in the magazine and periodicals business.

HeavyTorque (#15, July 2018) was the final issue to grace the shop shelves, both on the High Street and across the travel network. As part of our onward strategy to adapt, HeavyTorque will now be distributed exclusively through controlled circulation and available through printed subscription.

Please note, this change will only affect newsstand purchasers. There will be no change for our loyal print subscribers.

Why the newsstand change? Quite simply, we can no longer (in good conscience) participate in a distribution programme that creates such an inherent waste of our precious natural resources – and money.

For those of you who have enjoyed HeavyTorque from the newsstand, we sincerely appreciate your business – and we would hope that you’ve enjoyed the magazine enough to consider a direct subscription?
