EQUIPMENTTRAILERS more news at www.heavyliftpfi.com Capitalising on wind energy demand


Components in the wind energy sector continue to increase in size. Fittingly, manufacturers of trailers and heavy haulage equipment are innovating to keep up with the demands of the industry, writes Sophie Barnes.


TII Group presented the latest


generation of its blade adaptor at this year’s bauma exhibition.


O


rder intake for the first quarter of 2019 has been positive for the TII


Group. Volker Seitz, the company’s head of global marketing, explained that the group “recorded an increase in order intake, when compared with the previous year, in the modules, road and industrial segments in particular.” He added: “Based on the current positive business climate, we expect further growth in the coming year.” Construction and energy are


two of the areas driving this growth worldwide. “Here we offer solutions that are flexible and suitable for various transport tasks. For example, our new wind blade transport system with trailer, which enables operators to transport blades measuring over 80 m in length.” The third generation of the


blade adaptor was presented to the industry at this year’s bauma exhibition, which took place in Munich from April 8-14. The ever-increasing size of


components in the wind energy sector, as the turbines become more powerful, has been well documented. Accordingly, heavy haulage operators and trailer manufacturers are having to respond to the increasing demands of the associated

transport operations. The TII Group offers


transportation equipment for wind turbine blades, towers, nacelles and hubs in mountainous, twisting or wooded terrain. The blade adaptors are mounted on heavy-duty vehicles such as K25 modular trailers or InterCombi models and, with the help of a quick-release plate, can pick up and carry wind turbine blades of different dimensions. The wind blade can be set to an angle of

60 degrees or rotated around its own axis in order to avoid any obstacles on the route.


Payload moment The third generation of the adaptor features an improved payload moment of up to 610 tonnes. TII has also further simplified the pick-up and loading procedure for the trailer. Due to the flexible angle of the quick-release plate, the adapter and blade can be easily and quickly bolted to the frame from the inside, said TII. With this model, it is also possible to attach the drawbar element directly to the wind turbine blade adapter. This has been designed for


particularly long wind turbine blades up to 80 m in length. The system consists of a two-axle jeep dolly with a free-turning device

The programme is a comprehensive package consisting of 13 courses for the driver to choose from, varying from one to four-day courses. Robert Nijhuis, director sales and

services at Nooteboom Trailers, explained: “We start off with the Nooteboom Academy in the Netherlands and Belgium, but eventually we will present the courses in other languages too. We intend to roll out the Nooteboom Academy into other European countries.”
