As wind electricity generation continues to evolve, the trend is now towards increasingly large blades with a length well over 70 metres. Such extra-large structures can be moved safely and economically to the wind turbine operation site with the new WingMAX from Faymonville, which is part of the TeleMAX flatbed semi-trailer series. Its special feature is the unique combination of several strengths!

“For wind turbine blades in XXL format with a length of up to more than 70 metres, Faymonville has now developed a vehicle that is not only long, but also strong and very easy to manoeuvre,” says Product Manager Rainer Noe, describing the basic principle of the flatbed semi-trailer that is available as a 3 or 4-axle model. “Thanks to this profitable combination, this semi-trailer overcomes all challenges,” he added, explaining the reason why this innovation is a genuine benefit for the wind power industry.

“In combination with the hydraulically lifting and lowering gooseneck, the new WingMAX can virtually overcome any obstacles that cross its path, such as roundabouts. As a result, the route is manageable even in the case of demanding terrain conditions and road profiles,” he commented relating to some crucial features when it comes to moving extremely long loads.

“As part of the TeleMAX series, the WingMAX is extremely stable and safe to handle thanks to all these features, even when loaded with the longest wind turbine blades.”
