Edwards adds to its fleet

June 6 - Edwards Moving & Rigging, specialists in heavy lifting and multimodal transport solutions, has acquired four six-axle Goldhofer ADDrives, which it claims are the first to be used in the USA.

Edwards Moving & Rigging utilised one of its ADDrives for the delivery of a turbine to a combined-cycle power plant in northeastern USA. Used in combination with a prime mover, it powered a gross weight of 621,689 lbs (281.9 tonnes) up an incline with a ten percent gradient to the job site.

On site, the prime mover was removed and the ADDrive manoeuvred the 375,000 lb (170-tonne) turbine around the job site prior to offloading.

A video of the project can be viewed here.
