Nooteboom patent granted

By Christian Shelton04 February 2019

Netherlands-based manufacturer Nooteboom Trailers has been granted a European patent for the lift adaptor for its Mega Windmill Transporter (MWT).

The MWT is designed for the transport of tower sections and the nacelles of large wind turbines. The lift adapter, called Liftad, is designed for the transport of large tower sections, up to just over 40 metres in length without using a loading floor.

The Liftad adjusts to fit a range of different towers and, depending on the diameter of the tower section, has a lifting capacity of 100 tonnes.

Nooteboom says it applied for the patent back in 2005 and it will remain valid until 2023.
