Oil Spill Response rely on SPMT Light from SCHEUERLE

If absolute reliability is required, companies around the world place their trust in vehicles from the TII Group, which is comprised of SCHEUERLE, NICOLAS and KAMAG as well as the TII Energy. In particular, this reliability is important to ensure an effective response when responding to oil spill incidents. Oil Spill Response Limited selected vehicles from SCHEUERLE to mobilise critical subsea well intervention equipment that would be called upon in the event of a subsea well blowout.

Following the Macondo incident, the Subsea Well Response Project (SWRP), a consortium of nine leading upstream companies designed and developed advanced capping, dispersant and containment equipment for deployment worldwide. Oil Spill Response Limited was identified to make this equipment available to industry and now owns, stores and maintains four capping stacking systems in four international locations – Brazil, Norway, Singapore and South Africa. In the event of an incident, subscribers to OSRL’s Subsea Well Intervention Services can mobilize the equipment which is stored at the bases in a response ready state.Scheuerle SPMT Light

The capping stacks can be mounted on a well up to depths of 3,000 metres and can either completely seal off the escaping oil or at least reduce the flow until a relief borehole addresses the situation. In order to reliably transport the capping stack to the ship when required, OSRL uses the transversely-coupled SCHEUERLE SPMT Light vehicle. The 120 t capping stack is permanently loaded on the vehicle ready to be mobilised when required.

“The SPMT Light, which was designed among other equipment for heavy load transportation for internal use in plant and steel construction as well as special assignments such as for Oil Spill Response Limited, is employed here in a very sensitive situation. In the event of an incident, it has to function perfectly and our customers know that they can fully rely on this”, according to Jannick Mathieu, Area Manager Sales at TII Sales, the sales arm of the TII Group.Oil Spill Response SPMT

SMPT Light

The essential feature of the SPMT Light series is the compact design of the vehicle modules. The platform dimensions of 6,000 x 2,438mm with 4 pendulum axles guarantee optimum flexibility for smaller transport assignments, e.g. in production halls. Payloads of up to 86t are possible. Naturally, the SPMT Light also has the well-known advantages of a conventional SCHEUERLE SPMT such as the robust design of the bogie units and the electronic multi-directional steering complete with all known steering programs. Fixing points on the topside of the platform top allow the mounting of cargo control posts for the transportation of long materials.

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?
