CES ships 155t SWL reach stackers

CS Wind UK in Scotland is the first customer for the CES VRS-K, a reach stacker with a top SWL of 155 tonnes on a 12m wheelbase setting

The picture shows one of the two pre-commissioned VRS-K models at the CES assembly site near Verona, Italy, prior to breakdown and 100% containerisde shipment to wind tower manufacturer CS Wind UK in Campeltown, Scotland.

These are the biggest reach stackers in the world, with a variable wheelbase of 9m-12m and a top SWL of 155t under hook (140t when closed to 9m wheelbase). As previously discussed, they are part of the heavy duty series of CES's modular design "family" of variable wheelbase reach stackers.

They are fitted with a fabricated front axle with four independently-suspended wheels fitted with Bosch Rexroth motors and mounted with massive 29.00-49 tyres, with two 24.00-35 tyres on the steer axle. Power is provided by a 285 kW Stage IV Volvo Penta D11 engine with a peak torque of 1,938 Nm @ 1700 rpm.

Machine self-weight is 122.5t. At 12m wheelbase, load capacity under heavy cargo hook is 102t at 3500mm load centre.

CS Wind UK's core business is fabrication of tower sections and foundations for wind turbines. Each section has a maximum diameter of 7000mm and, in 50m lengths, weigh 200t.

Hence the two VRS-K machines will be used in tandem as an integral part of the in-plant transportation and quayside delivery processes.

"They are the alternative to heavy mobile cranes and SPMTs," said Nicolas Huthloff, Managing Director of Germany-based CES Containerhandling Equipment and Solutions GmbH, the parent company of CES Italy Srl, which builds the machines.
