Wassermann Group, based in Mühlenbeck near Berlin in Germany has added two units of Scheuerle InterCombi specialized transport equipment to its fleet.
The vehicles are designed for transporting heavy cable reels weighing up to 100 tonnes. The cables can be wound on and off the reels while on the vehicles, which means loading and unloading can be done without a crane, the manufacturer added.
The handover was carried out at the Scheuerle plant in Pfedelbach, Germany. Zeljko Paripovic, Wassermann Group, managing partner, said, “Although we are a young group of companies, the management and employees, however, have decades of experience in cable technology. When the decision was taken to convert from transporting 30 tonne cable reels to those weighing around one hundred tonnes, we looked for a manufacturer that could also integrate our own experience in the development and was able to adapt to our requirements us as a customer. This worked out extremely well with Scheuerle.”
Bernd Schwengsbier, TII Sales chairman of the management board, said, “With the Scheuerle InterCombi vehicles and the specially designed frame decks, the Wassermann Group can now offer its customers considerably more options than in the past: cable reels up to one hundred tonnes can be transported so cable winding operations on and off the reels can take place without requiring a crane. Furthermore, all equipment required for cable installation, such as transformers or plant components, can be also transported on the Scheuerle InterCombi.”
