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.
