Vienna-based shipping company, Prangl, has taken delivery of three WingMAX flatbed trailers for transporting XXL wind turbine blades.
A full-range supplier for wind power assignments, Prangl transports wind turbine system components and covers a wide range of related services.
The three new WingMAX flatbeds, according to the manufacturer, Faymonville, are designed to transport rotor blades of up to 70 metres.
“The enormous gooseneck stroke, the longest available loading platform with four-fold extension and strong 19.5” pendle-axles are a profitable combination and a genuine plus for the wind power industry,” said Faymonville Sales Representative, Mario Balter. He added the technical equipment simplifies the handling of the long wind turbine blades. “A slideable load support for the blade tipping frame enables the flatbed to be shortened even under load. This refinement is a genuine help in passing through winding road sections with more ease.”
Prangl operates from 16 locations across six countries. The family-run company has about 700 employees, and through consistent growth, has developed specialised transport, lifting and logistics solutions throughout Europe.
