Edwards debuts Faktor 5

February 12 - Edwards Moving & Rigging has used its new 500-tonne capacity Goldhofer Faktor 5 high girder bridge for the first time in the delivery of a 490,817 lb (222-tonne) steam generator turbine in northern Virginia.

As part of a large power plant project, the steam generator turbine was transported over 28 miles (45 km) by road, crossing over 21 bridge structures.

After months of planning and coordination with local, county and state authorities, the Department of Transportation (DOT) and Department of Motor Vehicle representatives, the 439 ft x 21.4 ft x 16.4 ft (133 m x 6.5 m x 4.9 m) girder bridge was pulled along the route by four of Edwards' Kenworth prime movers.

Edwards says that the modular design and containerised load-out capability of its Faktor 5 provides rapid and easy mobilisation for projects in North America and abroad. The girder bridge has a deadweight to payload ratio of 5:1 with adjustable loading lengths and widths.
