Since being acquired in 2017 by the Faymonville Group, Cometto is the specialist for the development and manufacture of heavy load modules and self-propelled modular vehicles for service loads of up to 15,000 tonnes … and beyond. The company also offers special heavy load transporters for industrial applications: Shipyard and steelwork transporters as well as conveyance systems.

Successful obstacle run with 350 tons in stunning heights
The expansion of the ICE connection between Stuttgart and Ulm is a project of the century in traffic infrastructure. It is full of challenges for man and machine. The erection of the 485 m-long Filstal Bridge represents a milestone. The new Cometto MSPE self-propelled vehicles belonging to the Wiesbauer company passed this test with flying colours.
The impressive structure towers over the valley near Mühlhausen im Täle and will have two railway tracks on completion. With a height of 85 m, it will be Germany’s third highest railway bridge. The bridge is being constructed by the Max Bögl / Porr consortium. With an overall length of 485 m, it is the Deutsche Bahn AG’s largest single structure on this new ICE route, after the main railway station in Stuttgart. From 2022 onwards, high-speed trains will cross the bridge in just seven seconds at 250 km/h.

Connect & drive!
The Cometto Eco1000 series offers all necessary vehicle combinations and interoperability with existing products from the Eco1000 family.
Possibility to combine the same vehicles with same kind of power pack unit and vehicle length. As end-to-end combination it’s also possible to combine vehicles from different lengths.
Each vehicle is equipped with the connections quick couplings for electrical connecting cables (optional accessories).
Achieve full freedom of maneuvering!
The electronic steering guarantees maximum maneuverability and precision through a +135/-135 ° steering angle.
By applying its unique remote control, the high performance steering and a perfect synchronization is still ensured even if different Eco1000 families are mixed in the same convoy.
With the hydrostatic drive system, the Eco1000 modules can be moved slowly and progressively in all directions.
Your freedom of choice with three different Power Pack technologies!
The widest range of Power Pack Units assures maximum flexibility. They always meet your requirements as well as the future emission standards.
Whether the traditional propulsion technology for continuous performance, hybrid or the electric solution, all Power Pack Units have been designed and tested under the hardest conditions.
They represent the cutting edge of technology and offer the highest performance and efficiency either in cold arctic conditions or in the dry desert heat.
The Shipyard Transporter Brochure
The Cometto SYT self-propelled elevating transporter is primarily designed for moving ship sections.
With its payload from 100 to more than 1000 tons, shipyard applications can be carried efficiently. All details can be found in the new revised SYT brochure on this link.
