Combilift Combi-LC Load Carriers for offshore wind sector

Friday, 01 December, 2023 | Supplied by: Combilift

Combilift, global manufacturer of multidirectional, articulated forklifts and straddle carriers, is moving into the offshore wind sector with the launch of a new product designed to meet the intricate load-handling demands of large-scale offshore wind manufacturers.

The Combi-LC, designed at Combilift’s HQ and manufacturing plant in Ireland in collaboration with Siemens Gamesa, allows for the movement of wind turbine blades and towers — some as long as 115 m and weighing in at around 70 t — through production stages and on to storage locations, which can sometimes be as far as 5 km apart.

The concept of bespoke Load Carriers [patent pending design] is based on two fully customisable remote-control units with low-level chassis beds that can work in tandem master and slave operation, with dimensions and wheel configurations that vary according to load type and weight.

Siemens Gamesa is the first company to use the bespoke Load Carriers.
