angle of almost 90 degrees, swivelled and rotated by 360 degrees around their own axis. The adapter can be mounted on either a self- propelled vehicle or between modular axle lines. A third vertical rotary axis can


be integrated into the system, enabling an additional lateral swivel angle of 20 degrees. According to Cometto, this option is frequently selected for use in built-up areas.


In February 2019, Nooteboom was granted a European patent for a lift adaptor developed for its Mega Windmill Transporter (MWT).


NEWS in BRIEF


Steadplan represents Rojo trailer units As of November last year, Steadplan has been the nominated dealer for Rojo trailer units in the UK. From its facilities in Leeds, Rochdale and Nelson, the company is now supplying Rojo’s range of special vehicles.


McFadden joins Trail King Rod McFadden has joined North American trailer manufacturer Trail King as district sales manager for Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma.


Doll at bauma 2019 Germany’s Doll Fahrzeugbau showcased its latest heavy-duty semi-trailers at the bauma fair this year. The company’s heavy haulage vehicles are classified into four product groups: platform semi-trailer, semi low-loader, low-loader and self- steering trailer.


BigMove expands fleet BigMove, a European alliance of 13 medium-sized logistics companies, has expanded its fleet with the addition of 19 low-bed semi-trailers from Scheuerle.


Amcor adds Drake trailer Queensland, Australia-based Amcor Excavations has acquired a 3x4 lowbed trailer from Drake Trailers.

and a four-axle trailing unit. TII added that the transport


system can be assembled to create a single semi-trailer combination for empty runs. This results in an overall length of 16.5 m and a total weight under 60 tonnes; special authorisation for empty runs in Europe is therefore not required. Rainer Auerbacher, member


of the board at Goldhofer, also acknowledged that “wind power continues to be one of the key industries in the international sector that ensures stable demand” for its products. The company’s Ventum semi-


trailer, designed to serve the wind energy sector, was on display at the bauma exhibition, along with the Bladex blade tip- lifting device. In combination, these products provide a complete system to transport long wind turbine blades, said Goldhofer. The Ventum system allows heavy haulage operators


to transport extra-long rotor blades measuring over 70 m in length along roads, tracks and construction sites. Further still, the hydraulically


operated gooseneck ensures that rotor blades with very large hub diameters can safely negotiate tunnels and underpasses. The turbine blades are not


the only wind energy components that are increasing

in size and requiring specialist transport equipment; the tower sections are also increasing in weight and diameter. Cometto, part of the


Faymonville Group, has also developed a wind turbine blade lifter that is capable of transporting the latest generation of blades through built-up areas, narrow streets or mountainous regions. It has a payload moment of up to 650tonnes. Using the BladeMAX 650,


Cometto said that rotor blades can be picked up, raised to an


European patent In February 2019, Nooteboom was granted a European patent for a lift adaptor developed for its Mega Windmill Transporter (MWT). The adaptor, called Liftad, was specially designed to allow the MWT to transport large tower sections, over 40 m in length, without the need to use a loading floor. Since its introduction in 2005,


the MWT has been used to transport the nacelles and tower sections of wind turbines. Until recently, the system has hardly


changed, said Nooteboom, adding that the combination provides an innovative and efficient transport solution for the transport of wind turbine components. Consisting of two


hydraulically extendable lift adaptors that can be employed on various vehicle types, the load is clamped between the adaptors so that a load floor is not needed. The front lift adaptor is usually coupled via a turntable to a three-axle or


four-axle Nooteboom jeep dolly. The rear lift adaptor is usually coupled via a turntable to a seven-axle hydraulically steered Nooteboom self-steering dolly. Liftad can be adjusted to


handle tower sections with various diameters and has a maximum lifting capacity of 100 tons (90.72 tonnes), depending on the diameter of the tower section, said the Netherlands-based trailer manufacturer; the patent will remain valid until the end of 2023.
