MODULAR TRANSPORTERS (SPMT)
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problem: A nuclear utility needs to remove and replace an outdated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.
• 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.
To view the configuration options, click
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.
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.
