Universally adaptable lift adapters
With the lift adapters tower sections and nacelles can be loaded/unloaded without using a crane. This makes for significant savings on crane costs. Coupling the load is extremely straightforward because the lift adapters can be moved in all directions by means of a single remote control. The clamp connections of the lift-adapters are hydraulically infinitely adjustable to fit the diameter of the tower section or nacelle from any manufacturer. The length of the lift adapters can also be adjusted so that they can be universally used worldwide on various vehicle types.
The Nooteboom MEGA WINDMILL TRANSPORTER has a dead weight that is extremely low compared to alternative transport solutions. This is achieved by using simple and light vehicles together with the lightweight lift-adapters. The unique design of the lift adapters and use of high-strength steel ensure these vehicles have a very low dead weight of just 35 tonnes (whole combination 4+7 = 11 axles), while the lift capacity of a lift adapter set is 100 tonnes.
The end result is an extremely high payload together with a combination length that is kept to a minimum. Of course the exact payload depends on the transport combination chosen and the country where the transport takes place.
