Fincantieri buys Cometto steelwork transporter

10 August 2018

Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri has extended its specialized transport fleet with the addition of an ETH5/4E transporter for steelwork, made by Italian company Cometto.

According to Cometto, the ETH5/4E bought by Fincantieri has five axles and a payload of 121 tonnes – although the complete range offers payload capacities between 20 – 400 tonnes.

The transporter range is suitable for moving iron and steel products and the platform dimensions can be customised, Cometto said.

The ETH5/4E uses four motorised suspension systems and a 202kW Scania diesel engine with an integrated radiator.

The steering is electronically controlled and four steering modes are possible: longitudinal Ackermann; transversal Ackermann; carousel; or crab.

The position of the operator’s cab is flexible enabling the operator to see either over or under the loading platform.

According to Cometto, the ETH5/4E also has: a sprung, 180-degree rotating driving seat; tempered glass; a thermostat-controlled heating system, electronically adjustable rear-view mirrors, and two rear-view cameras. Soundproofing and shock absorbers are designed to maximise operator comfort.
