1650t Giant Bridge steel structure was transported by 64 axle lines CHINAHEAVYLIFT SPMT
1. Project: Large steel structure for HongKong-Zhuhai-Macao Giant Bridge CB02 section
Project location and distance: transport from site area of SINOCONST-HI to outside area, about 120m distance.
Size for transport job site: Length: 140m, Width: 20m, Height: 8m
Project date: 2014.3.16 afternoon
Project time: 3 hours
Cargo information: 87m×33.1m×4.5m, the steel structure weight about 1650t
The difficulty of the project: Super oversize and overweight giant steel structure
Transport company: GPEC – Lift
2. Transport project solution(How and why):
We adopt total 4 units – 390kw PPU, 8 units – 6 lines module SPMT and 4 units – 4 lines module SPMT, are divided into 4 groups, so each group contains one unit 390kw PPU with 16 axle lines CHINAHEAVYLIFT SPMT, located in the four position of steel structure. Four PPU were connected by E-combination Connection Cable(Power+Data), CHINAHEAVYLIFT SPMT system was controlled by one Remote Control.
As the steel structure was super oversize and overweight, also need to considering the limited job site area, with this Transport project solution, can not only ensure the transport safety, but also ensure there’s no big deformation of steel structure.
Brief Introduction of SPMT: The transport equipment is CHINAHEAVYLIFT SPMT (Self-Propelled Modular Transporters), with hydraulic transmission to complete the movement of driving, steering and lifting, CHINAHEAVYLIFT SPMT is specialized used for the transportation of super large cargo.
Advantage: When the cargo is oversize and overweight or out-of-shape, we can combine some units of SPMT to one super power capacity hydraulic transporter system, to meet the needs of different transportation. With the “modular” and “combination” quality, CHINAHEAVYLIFT SPMT is easy to transport and disassembly.
4. During transportation: (is everything smoothly? What about the road condition? Any special circumstances? )
It was quite smooth during transportation, the road is very flat, with the operating of experienced engineer, the steel structure was successfully transported to the destination.
5. Customer evaluation:
Mr. Lin Qiang (GPEC – Lift engineer): The CHINAHEAVYLIFT TJ-S2.43 SPMT (Self-Propelled Modular Transporters) can meet the different transportation needs of oversize and overweight or out-of-shape cargo, easy to operate,fully functional, is the powerful transport equipment for heavylift and heavy transport.
