Together with the tractor unit, the convoy reached a length of 42 m and a


height of 5.85 m. – Peter Niedermair-Auer, Felbermayr


vehicles had to be positioned behind the cranes, “otherwise


the extension of the crane jibs would be too great”. As a result, the units had to


be manoeuvred between the two cranes before being lowered onto the trailers. The first units that were


Felbermayr assists factory expansion in Pischelsdorf


Felbermayr mobilised four cranes and specialised transport equipment in February to deliver components for the expansion of a wheat starch factory in the Lower Austrian town of Pischelsdorf. Sophie Barnes reports.


Once at the site, a Liebherr LG 1750 lattice boom crane and a Grove GMK 5250L telescopic crane were used to unload the components. The cranes were also used to reposition the evaporator from horizontal to vertical and set them down onto the foundations.


G


lobal starch producer Agrana is in the process of expanding its factory


on the Danube River in Pischelsdorf, Austria. As part of this project, four


oversized components – two falling film evaporators and two separators –were transported along the river from Bulgaria. Once in Pischelsdorf,


Felbermayr deployed a 750-tonne capacity crane, along with a smaller 400-tonne capacity unit, to unload the components ahead of their transportation to the factory.


Tandem lifts Working in tandem, the cranes lifted each component from the deck of the barge and positioned the units on lowbed trailers. Peter Niedermair-Auer from


the Felbermayr project department explained that, due to restricted space at the offloading site, the transport

transported to the project site included two 136-tonne film evaporators, which measured 30m long and 5.1 m high. “Together with the tractor


unit, the convoy reached a length of 42 m and a height of 5.85 m,” said Niedermair-Auer. He added that along the route the convoy had to pass under a bridge that had a height clearance of just 5.9 m. “For such cases, we used a


programme for route planning in addition to a local inspection. This enabled us to draw up route section profiles and simulate critical clearance profiles with a three-dimensional model,” explained Niedermair-Auer.


Repositioning Once at the site, a Liebherr LG 1750 lattice boom crane and a Grove GMK 5250L telescopic crane were used to unload the components. The cranes were also used to reposition the evaporator from horizontal to vertical and set them down onto the foundations. The two smaller components,


weighing less than 40 tonnes each and measuring just over 10m, were subsequently transported to the project site. According to Felbermayr, the lifting operations for these two units were completed using one crane. The expanded factory is


expected to be operational by the end of 2019.
