Fagioli through its Brazilian joint venture TRANSDATA FAGIOLI DO BRASIL (TFB) is currently working for a huge petrochemical project in Brazil. The main scope for TFB is the heavy transport by means of Spmt’s of more than 200 pipe rack modules from manufacturing area up to foundation, including the final installation. The road distance is about 8 km.

The modules (composed of three groups with different width ranging from 3 to 6 and 9 meters) are long between 25 and 35 meters, weighing between 100 and 800 ton. TFB mobilized 36 axle lines Spmt’s , 4 connecting beams and lattice towers used to support the modules during the transport and useful as well, for the installation activity. Due to the peculiar configuration of the frame, the modules are mainly transported with two rows of axle lines Spmt’s. TFB took care of the engineering aspects and the tailor made configuration in order to perform the delicate transport of the three meters wide module. As a matter of fact, TFB provided the trailers, a base frame on top of which the lattice towers were positioned, a top frame and some transversal and longitudinal beams in order to better stabilize the convoy considering that the center of gravity was relevantly high.

The project is at its initial stage and pictures refer to the transport of three meters wide modules. Check out the website for further developments and pictures!
