First Mission in UK for Cometto SPMTs with Mammoet
The global market leader Mammoet now also uses Cometto SPMT in their worldwide self-propelled modular trailer fleet.
A first mission is being carried out in the United Kingdom with 84 axle lines for moving jacket structures weighing between 1,850t and 2,300t.
The new collaboration between Cometto and Mammoet leads to a fruitful combination of two partners that stand for leading competence in special and heavy haulage business. “We are really proud to supply the worldwide heavy hauling and lifting reference with our self-propelled vehicles”, explains Cometto Sales Manager Joachim Kolb. After a detailed training session on their new SPMT, the Mammoet operators have executed the first mission transporting a tripod foundation in the United Kingdom. The bulky item has a height of 90m and weighs 2,035t.
The Mammoet crew transported the load on 84 axle lines Cometto MSPE with a payload capacity of 48 tons per axle line and three Power Pack Units with an output of 368 kW each. The self-propelled combination comes in an open compound with three MSPE trains. 28 axle lines in a side-by-side combination are positioned under each leg of the tripod. To master this challenging operation safely and efficiently, Mammoet is relying on the specialized Cometto equipment.
The tripod foundation is part of the offshore wind project, Seagreen OWF, a joint venture between TotalEnergies and SSE Renewables. The wind farm will consist of 140 turbines and is located 27 kilometres off the coast of Angus in the North Sea firth. In the future, the wind farm will feed the grid with power for approximately one million Scottish households.
The duration of this project for heavy lift specialist Mammoet will be at least twelve months.
