Mammoet transports 420 tons nacelle on NICOLAS MHD G II

Mammoet transports 420 tons nacelle on NICOLAS MHD G II

The Østerild Wind Turbine Test Field in Denmark is used for testing of wind turbines with an overall height up to 250 meters. Blades with up to 110 meters can be tested there – of course, the according nacelles are huge and extremely heavy. To deal with such a concentrated load of 420 tons, Mammoet recently used 21 axle lines of NICOLAS MHD G II modular transporters.

After unloading at Hanstholm harbor, the nacelle was securely fixed on the NICOLAS MHD G II with special load spreaders. To match the requirements of the load concerning weight and measures, a so-called 3-file combination was put together, consisting of several standard vehicles in longitudional coupling attached to one row of split “halves”. This combination ensures an excellent tilting stability despite the high center of gravity of the load. In total, the transport combination had a height of 11,60 meters and a length of 71,0 meters on 252 wheels.

“The NICOLAS MHD G II is ideally suited for the wind industry”, says Lars Schoedt, Area Manager Sales at TII Sales. “With the second generation of this proven vehicle, we provide the specifications the industry needs – no matter if we are talking about the impressive bending moment, a multitude of precise steering modes or the sturdiness and long-term reliability of the NICOLAS MHD G2”. 

The NICOLAS MHD G II is available as 2-,3-,4-,5- and 6-axle module. A self-propelled version of the MHD G II is also successfully in use as an automatically guided vehicle: The transport of nacelles during the production process without any operators once more underlines the multitude of technical possibilities the MHD G II offers.tii-group-pm-Mammoet-Wind-1 f:w

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?
