Scan Global had the opportunity to undertake one of the most extreme transports via public roads ever seen in Denmark. It all came down to a total of 93-meters- and 200-ton unit consisting of the truck and the gigantic windmill foundry mold.
The transport totaled 93-meters- and 200 tons consisting of the truck and the gigantic windmill foundry mold. The road transport itself was just shy of 9 hours to complete, required 5,000 square meters of steel plates to support, removing, replacing, and re-installing road signs/lighting as well as modifying and restructuring several roundabouts.
“However this time we had to operate and transport without interfering with regular traffic, and together with our trusted partners, we managed to maneuver various pre-defined areas, modify and re-establish areas a little more than usual, to make it a success. The transport took place from Wednesday at 8 PM to Thursday at 4.50 AM. This timing was deliberately chosen to ensure the least impact to the ordinary traffic and users of the used route.“This was one of the biggest transports ever handled in Denmark via public roads. Most transports of this scale are very rare, and when they take place, it will be in closed industrial areas. That makes a huge difference,” says Finn Petersen, Senior Project Manager in Scan Global Logistics.
Only a 40-kilometer distance from point A to B, but given its extreme measurements and weight, a highly complex logistic scenario, that we nonetheless managed to uncomplicate and execute for the customer.
