Spanish company Navantia SA recently received nine modular combinations of self-propelled MSPE 48 tonne trailers from specialist Cometto. This adds up to an impressive total of 46 axle lines which is quite a volume of powerful vehicles for heaviest transport challenges.
The supply includes five 6-axle modules type MSPE 6/4/2,43 48T, four 4-axles modules type MSPE 4/2/2,43 48T and two power packs with an output of 368kW each (equipped with the new Scania engine). Besides the impressive payload capacity, this self-propelled trailer excels thanks to the versatility in configuration and its maneuverability. The MSPE 48t also offers the best compromise between platform dimension, load performance and investment.
One single 6-axle MSPE module can reach a gross weight of 288t. “Navantia is one of the main players in design and construction of hi-tech military vessels and civil vessels around the world”, explains Alessandro Giordano when asked about the main activity of its customer. The MSPE from Cometto offers the usual interchangeability and system expandability to adapt to any future needs of the customer.
For Simone Ricca, Product Manager, Cometto, said, “The flexibility of Cometto allows specific solutions, also with regard to the tyres. These modules are equipped with solid rubber tires as requested from the customer, assuring highest payload capacity and an excellent safety-factor.”
The two 368kW power packs are equipped with the first Scania engines that have been delivered after the recent partnership between Cometto and the Swedish automotive industry manufacturer. Each of them comes with the necessary kits for coupling and distance connection. This gives the customer all the possibilities to form lifting platforms of any dimension and shape, according to the specific cargo requirements.
