Wind turbine blades on Scheuerle-Kamag K2523 January 2018 by Sotiris Kanaris
A Scheuerle-Kamag K25 PowerBooster platform trailer was used by AltéAd to transport 60m-long rotor blades to the Lussac-Les-Églises wind farm, in France.
At the wind farm six wind turbines with a rotor diameter of 122m respectively needed to be installed.
With the help of a rotor blade adapter, the 60m long rotor blades each weighing 15t were loaded onto the K25 PB platform trailer and transported to their final destination 200km away. A challenging route featuring numerous tight bends along with many buildings in the town of Lussac-Les-Églises had to be negotiated.
“The possibility to position the wind turbine blade up to an angle of 60° as well as the options to pivot and to turn on its own axis ensured that the blades could be safely transported to the site,” said TII Group.
The K25 can be used with rotor blade adapter as a trailer or self-propelled.
