SLC: Turbine transport through Angola

Angola-based transport company SLC and it heavy transport subsidiary FM Global were contracted by the Angolan government to transport gas turbines and generators for a project to update the nation’s power supply.

The company used 10 axle-lines of Faymonville’s G-SL ModulMAX series to move several turbines and generators weighing between 180 and 210 tonnes.

Claudio Vieira at SLC said, “Thanks to the flexible method of construction, we could assemble the combination in such a way that the high and very concentrated loading weight was ideally distributed. As a result, bridges could be crossed without difficulty. In addition, the drawbar can also be used as a push rod on inclines, providing additional power through a second tractor unit.”

During the transport planning, Faymonville´s Falco software helped with all of the calculations, the company said. Viera added, “This support allowed SLC to deal successfully with a number of tricky situations. Faymonville staff gave us training in advance, so we were fully prepared.”
