Transformer move on Faymonville modular axle lines

Transformer move on Faymonville modular axle lines

For its heavy haul and rigging projects, US company Dynamic Specialized from New Kent, Virginia opts for a fleet of Faymonville ModulMAX G-SL. To move a transformer for a local substation in Newport News, the specialists assembled the trailer in a 4+6 combination with flat deck.

“We had a permitted gross weight of 423,430 lbs. and rough outline dimensions of 130’ length, 11’4” width and 15’3” height”, explained operations manager Josh Sohler and describes some more details. “This unit came into another terminal. However due to the overall height, we made alternate arrangements with the local floating crane to have this unit discharged at the Newport News Marine Terminal.”

From the NNMT, Dynamic Specialized transported the transformer unit about 10 miles total, with the various restrictions. This required utilizing city jurisdictional streets, getting onto the State Maintained roads, entering the interstate highway and back onto the city streets for the final delivery.

Some huge challenges that could be easily handled thanks to the ideal transport equipment. Josh Sohler: “As always, we had all of the proper planning and coordination completed upfront. The project delivery went overwhelmingly smooth for the Dynamic crew with the use of our Faymonville modular axle lines.”

Highest quality in manufacturing and used materials helps companies such as Dynamic Specialized to work without interruptions. Josh Sohler specifies different useful features. “Rolled platform deck edges, more robust steering arms or easily accessible knee pin locations have helped keep us on the road longer with significantly reduced support requirements”. Faymonville’s modularity, interoperability, capacity and ease of use have allowed Dynamic “to do more, with less” and “that has and continues to be a major key to success”.

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?
