The transport combination that the Vossmann haulage company recently had on the road left an enormous impression. A vortex used to clean gas and weighing 105t was transported to the inland port of Meppen on a Faymonville CombiMAX.
On the 12-axle trailer, the imposing industrial part, measuring almost 20 metres in length and over 7 metres in diameter, rose high into the air. From Dinklage to the harbour in Meppen, via Lindern, Sögel and Werlte, the colossus wound through the narrowest construction sites, thanks to its outstanding maneuverability. A team of 35 employees ensured a smooth process.
Several months ago, Vossmann, the haulage specialist, added a package of 16 axle lines together with a flatbed, excavator deck and vessel deck to its fleet. “Naturally, the advantage is the great flexibility. It allows us to respond to very diverse challenges with numerous possible combinations”, says Vossmann’s project manager, Swen Siefken, speaking of the benefits of this extensive new acquisition.
The Vossmann haulage company vigorously pursued new challenges that ideally suited the CombiMAX, thanks to its large payload and modular capabilities.“We have only recently been active again in the segment above 100t gross weight.We have already done some hauling in this sector, with 10 to 12 axles, 2 4 vessel deck and 3 5 flatbed”.
The kind of versatility that the CombiMAX offers is a tangible asset in day-to-day life for Vossmann and Swen Siefken. “It’s particularly important in the heavy load sector, because some parameters can always change between initial planning and execution”.
This could also be observed in the vortex hauling project, which was planned and carried out within only three months. After almost 15 hours on the road, everything happened very quickly at the harbour. The crane operator lowered the apparatus parts into the hold of the ship within 75 minutes.
Before the night was over, the ship left the harbour to sail to Voerde, where the components were to be assembled in a heavy load workshop. From there it continued by water to Duisburg and the end customer.
