SCHEUERLE Ship Transporter Heads to South Korea

SCHEUERLE delivers ship section transporter with 800t payload to South Korea

Several days ago, a yellow-painted colossus left the SCHEUERLE Fahrzeugfabrik production facility in Pfedelbach and headed to Heilbronn. For the transportation of the ship section transporter with a 800t payload along the route to the harbour great precision was required as the almost eight metre wide and thirty metre long vehicle is anything but easy to manage on the roads.

The ship section transporter will be used at the shipyard premises of the Sungdong Group in the South Korean coastal city of Tongyoung. Equipped with 26 axles, it moves large ship segments positioning them for final assembly or moving them back and forth between different production facilities on the site. In this respect, technical reliability and a high level of safety are particularly important. As a result, the transporter is not only fitted with monitoring and warning systems for closely checking the centre of gravity, load and inclination but also reliably protects the driver in the cab mounted below against noise, heat and cold, and draws his attention to any possible vehicle operating errors.

“The highest demands are placed on our ship section transporters in terms of process reliability as costly failures and associated downtime is today something that no operator wants to risk,” said Ralf Grützmacher, Area Manager Sales at TII Sales, the joint sales and distribution company of SCHEUERLE, NICOLAS and KAMAG which together make up the TII Group. “Especially in tough operating conditions such as high humidity, high salt content in the air and constantly changing temperatures, our transport solutions enjoy a well-earned reputation for their high degree of reliability for avoiding breakdowns and malfunctions. We ensure this through the use of high quality components and a closely monitored quality control throughout the entire manufacturing process. We also take great care during the transportation to the customer by safeguarding the entire vehicle in order to protect it against the weather thus ensuring that it arrives in perfect condition at its final destination”, added Grützmacher. For the realisation of the transport solutions at the TII Group, the longstanding experience of all three sister companies are incorporated. In the process, the TII Group supplies a wide range of industries with a broad spectrum of pulled and self-propelled vehicles, and is the world market leader in the development and production of vehicles with hydraulically driven pendulum axles. Apart from ship section transporters, Self-Propelled Modular Transporters (SPMT) are also in frequent use in shipyard operations. With these modular transport systems, virtually any large loads can be carried and transported. Depending on the purpose, a single or multiple-coupled ship section transporter or one SPMT could provide the ideal solution for a particular transport assignment in the shipyard.
