SELF-PROPELLED MODULAR TRANSPORTERS (SPMT)


Forward, backward, side-to-side, this heavy transporter
solution adeptly maneuvers in confined spaces.



It's a common problem: A nuclear utility needs to remove and replace an outdated component or degraded structure. Most transport devices either won't fit through the small entry, or once inside, they lack the ability to maneuver within the confines. PSC offers two SPMT models to conquer these issues.
Enerpac Model: SPMU600
Goldhofer Model: PST-SL/E

With a minimum height of just 2 feet 7 inches and a width of 7 feet 6 inches, the SPMT can fit into confined spaces common at nuclear plants. Despite its compact size, the trailer is powerful: It can transport up to 67.5 tons per unit (22.5 tons per line), with idle and loaded speeds ranging respectively from 1.6 to 6.4 miles per hour and .21 to .93 miles per hour. It can be configured to meet the specific load requirements of a project and space constraints of nuclear plants by coupling up to four trailers end-to-end or side-by-side.

The SPMT was engineered to provide unparalleled maneuverability in the heavy transport market. First, each self-leveling wheel unit has a steering and lifting cylinder that optimizes control and traction. The pivoting wheel assemblies allow the trailer to move forward and backward, as well as sideways. Each trailer also features a steering range of +/- 175 degrees.

Furthermore, the trailer features a self-sufficient power source. Without the hindrance of power cords, the unit can rotate 360 degrees without changing its mid-point. Its intelligent design and innovative functionality allow the SPMT to fit through a narrow entry, proficiently maneuver into position, and rise from a collapsed height of 2 feet 7 inches to 3 feet 9 inches to precisely load a component onto a station. Once the component is in place, the SPMT simply drives out from under the load and exits the project area.
