MONSTER MONOPILES

SELF-PROPELLED TRANSPORTERS (SPT’S) FROM SCHEUERLE MOVE 1300-TONNE MONOPILES.

Rostock-based EEW Special Pipe Constructions GmbH has produced the world’s largest monopile off-shore wind turbine foundation with a diameter of 7.8 metres and a length of 84.5 metres. Self-propelled InterCombi transporters from Scheuerle (TII Group) are used to move the units within the company’s plant. With a total weight of 87,100 tonnes, 144 axle lines are being used to move the monopiles from the welding and paint shop to the storage area.

Then, Buss Port Logistics loads the monopiles from the factory onto barges, using Scheuerle self-propelled modular transporters with 48 axle lines, for transportation to the its Orange Blue Terminal in Eemshaven where they are unloaded using the same vehicles.

A total of 54 out of 67 monopiles for the Veja Mate offshore wind park have been moved so far. Each barge takes three monopiles, loaded using the Ro/Ro procedure. The final destination is the North Sea (off the German coast) – where the monopiles are being installed as part of a wind park which will supply electricity to over 400,000 households.
