Transport of wind power equipment

Secure and efficient transportation of rotor blades, nacelles and tower segments

Reliability, ease of maintenance and good handling are naturally included in the specifications of all vehicles by SCHEUERLE. More features are available as options. Intensive consulting and close dialog with you as a customer will result in a transport solution which is not only versatile and economical but also future-oriented. For: SCHEUERLE will also support you with its market intelligence and show you the direction in which the transportation business develops. Particularly in the wind-power sector where new technologies constantly emerge and the plant sizes continually increase, you can rest assured of one thing: You will remain competitive with the vehicles by SCHEUERLE in the future. 

Transport of Rotor Blades

Rotor blades are sensitive and extremely long, with a trend towards ever larger installations. Rotor blade lengths of up to 80 meters are not uncommon anymore. They can be transported in various ways with vehicles by SCHEUERLE.
Telescopically extendable semi-trailers are a solid and economical solution for easy route sections. When space is limited, companies around the world rely on the rotor-blade adapters by SCHEUERLE. Mounted on platform trailers, rotor blades can be picked up, positioned at an angle of up to 70°, pivoted as well as rotated around their own axis. Mounted on a quick-release plate, the rotor blades can be securely picked up and maneuvered around any obstacles. In areas with trees or buildings, hairpin turns or in the mountains - the fragile load is thus easily, safely and efficiently delivered to its destination.

Transport of Nacelles

Today, vehicles by SCHEUERLE are moving nacelles in all areas - on automatic guided vehicles (AGV), which are used as a “conveyor belt” in the manufacture of the heavyweights, with modular platform trailers on public roads or on the famous “last mile”, where SPMT by SCHEUERLE are often used. Combined with slab or portal decks or as a simple combination, vehicles by SCHEUERLE guarantee an economical and secure transport of nacelles.

Wind Tower Segments

Wind tower segments can be transported with portal decks or special adapters. Depending on the type of adapter, even special types of nacelles can be mounted directly onto the adapters. With the adjustable adapters by SCHEUERLE, segments of up to 120 tons and with an internal diameter of 5.5 meters can be moved. Rotatable wind tower bolsters make transportation even easier when space is limited - mountable on platform trailers and SPMT by SCHEUERLE. Wind tower segments can thus be lifted up to 750 mm upwards in a parallel position or even up to an angle of 15° on one side and pivoted to the left or right up to an angle of -/- 30°.

Offshore Wind Power Plants – Easy handling of tripod, lattice mast and monopiles

Vehicles by SCHEUERLE are already used in the construction process of off-shore installations on land. For the transport between different production and storage sites, in production logistics of nacelles as a “conveyor belt” or for the transportation of steel structures with self-propelled vehicles such as the SPMT or the SPMT Light. Particularly when it comes to the offshore sector, we need to “think big” - gigantic tripods, lattice masts or large monopiles must be moved securely, quickly and economically. Even gravity foundations and hubs of any size won’t push the SCHEUERLE vehicles to their limits. Models like the SPMT, but also modular platform trailers with or without drive are scalable as required and can thus be adapted to any transportation assignment in the offshore field.
