To upgrade its service offer, Wassermann Group in Germany has added two Scheuerle InterCombi vehicle combinations complete with frame decks for the transport of cable drums.
The vehicles (modular trailer and frame deck) were recently part of an expansion project involving a high-pressure pumped storage power station of the Vorarlberg Illwerke power company at Lake Vermunt (Vermuntsee) in the Austrian state of Vorarlberg.
The cables, which were installed in the Austrian Alps with the help of the Scheuerle InterCombi cable drum transporters, are up to 1,100 metres long.
Zeljko Paripovic, Wassermann Group managing director, said, “When it came to shifting cable reels weighing from 30 to around 100 tonnes, we looked for a manufacturer that not only incorporates our experience into the development but also adapts to us as a customer would. The result of this collaboration has convinced us time and time again – the vehicles have proved to be outstanding in all operations.”
Scheuerle InterCombi modular platform trailers can be coupled in longitudinal and transverse directions. Their technical axle load is 45 tonnes. It can be used as a towed or self-propelled vehicle.
