Blade Mover

Fast, easy and extremely manoeuvrable

 

Next generation in transporting wind turbine blades

Today the market is demanding large blades which again calls for new and improved solutions for transport and reduced handling time. As an engineering company of handling equipment for the wind industry, we re-designed today’s solutions into a very easy to manoeuvre vehicle with unmatched lifting capacity and excellent stability and driving abilities even on rough ground and uneven terrain.

On top of that, we added a time-saving feature to the Blade Mover dual system. By loading the Tip-end mover onto the Root-end mover once at the key site, the distance back to the storage site is covered at normal speed by the tractor. (See Slideshow below or link to video)

It is designed so that the technicians can (dis)mount the equipment within 5 minutes without violating safe practices.

Today the Blade Mover System by SH Group is in full operation on several storage sites for a leading global blade manufacturer.

 

 

Dual transport system

Root-End mover
The Root-End mover is a Wide combi trailer, pulled by a vehicle, tractor or similar, and a well-proven product from Scheuerle.  

The Root-end mover is capable of adjusting the platform in height via suspension groups to ensure a perfect fit when being (dis)mounted. All functions, including fork lifting operations, can be operated from the hydraulic panel.

On-demand delivery of customized interface solutions, as well as dimensions of the combi trailer, e.g. stability, are possible due to the flexible platform.

Dimensions (shown configuration):  L: 13.2m. W: min. 3.5m / max. 4.8m. H: 1.1m +/- 350mm

Tip-End mover
Tip-End mover is a Self-propelled lifting transporter and the second part of the transport system. The steering of the tip end vehicle is done by a technician walking next to the mover with a wireless remote control. It is a sophisticated and extremely manoeuvrable vehicle which allows precision-positioning due to its All-wheel steering programs known from SPMT vehicles.

Dimensions (shown configuration):  L: 6.2m. H: min 1.7m max. 4.4m. W: 5.3m. SWL 28T

Blades of tomorrow
Both the root-end and tip-end, due to its robust construction and unique design, are capable of transporting the blades of tomorrow. With the centre of gravity of the rotor blade in mind and focus on stability, the blade mover is scaleable in size up to transporting +80T in the current configuration.

 

 

All-wheel steering

The sophisticated steering technology of the SPMT allows precision-positioning of the Blade Mover. The Blade Mover and its electronic all-wheel steering make it extremely manoeuvrable with the built-in steering program. To compensate uneven ground, the vehicle is equipped with hydraulic axle compensation.
