Faymonville has unveiled a semi-trailer for the transportation of wind turbines measuring 70 m or more.
The WingMAX – part of the TeleMAX flatbed semi-trailer series – is available as a three of four-axle model.
Key features include a large gooseneck stroke and a long loading platform with four-fold extension. The hydraulically operated gooseneck raises itself up to 1.7 m, and the pendle axle technology allows for steering angles up to 60 degrees.
Rainer Noe, product manager, said that the vehicle is not only long and easy to manoeuvre but also stable and safe to handle.
The flatbed semi-trailer, which is designed for use with four and five-axle trucks, has other useful features to heavy hauliers. Sliding load supports for the blade tip frame enable the semi-trailer to be shortened even under load. These allow winding road sections to be transitioned with greater ease.
Hydraulic support legs simplify the extension or retraction of the telescopic loading platform, said Faymonville. Double-sided locking of the telescopic stages ensures increased driving stability, while the 2,000 mm track width of the axle bogie provides maximum lateral stability
