Sarens' quick reaction
By Euan Youdale16 September 2009
In June Sarens Polska transported a reactor from a barge to the Włocławek Chemical Plant for client ZTE Radom.
The company used the roll on/roll off method to offload the reactor onto 2 x 12 axles of Kamag self propelled modular transporter (SPMT), which included two power packs. A track, made up of steel plates, lead from the jetty to the main highway on which the Kamags made the 2 km journey to Włocławek.
The reactor weighed 329 tonnes and was 17.4 m long and 9.1 m in diameter. The Kamag operator walked backwards throughout the transportation which was completed in one day. According to Sarens Polska main engineer Mariusz Sudoł, the project drew quite a crowd, with more than 20 observers making their way to the jetty.
