2000t Gantry Crane transported on Cometto SPMT by Anjeon

A new 2000t giant gantry crane had to be delivered from the crane manufacturer in South Korea to the final customer in India recently . For the first 3 kilometers of the journey it was carried by 96 axle lines of Anjeon’s Cometto SPMT over the route from the manufacturing site of Sangsangin in Yulchon to Yulchon port.

The specialists from Anjeon are well-prepared and have a lot of experience with this kind of job even though the challenges, the weight of 2,000t and the height of 45m, provided many challenges.  At the port the crane was transferred to to a barge for onward transport to Garden Reach Shipbuilders & Engineers in India.

As the load is approximately 120m long, the self-propelled modular transporter had to be assembled in an open compound. 48 axles of Anjeon’s MSPE EVO2 with a payload capacity of 60 tons per axle line and four Power Pack Units are used on each side of the crane.

This was another successful project by Anjeon with their SPMT fleet from Cometto. Anjeon is currently the most active heavyweight carrier in South Korea. President Han, “Cometto can advise users on how to utilize the trailer in the field as per the customers’ working environment.”

The Cometto MSPE EVO2 series suits Anjeon, including, “the efficient coupling system and excellent performance thanks to the flexible and strong hydraulic force.”

Finally, the Power Pack Units’ software also represents a real added value for the South Korean operator, their President Han: “It allows to intuitively identify any issue during the operating process of the EVO2 and to respond rapidly at job site.”

The “new performance booster Goliath Crane” was safely delivered to Garden Reach Shipbuilders & Engineers and commissioning was reported earlier this month.
