Abnormal Load Transport

What is Abnormal Loads Transport?

Abnormal loads transports can be known as the transportation of heavy machinery, objects or oversized loads that are beyond the legal limit in both weight and dimension. Abnormal transport is a delicate process that requires special attention and strict regulations. These types of cargo/loads transported often have an escort requirement, which ensures their safety on roads and also of other drivers.

Abnormal transport can include transportation of heavy machinery, cranes, green energy equipment, and many more. These heavy objects are transported to a site or location in which they will be stored or assembled for use i.e transporting wind turbines across the country to a farm where they will be installed.

These trailers can carry the most abnormal freight such as wind blades, tower sections, nacelles, risers and drill pipes. Whether it’s wind turbine components, generators, or risers – we’ve got the right equipment to move most things.

  • Extension of 54m in length

How does abnormal load transportation work?

Abnormal load transport is expensive and high risk and therefore the correct transport equipment and an experienced team is of crucial importance.

Concord Cranes not only provides the correct resources to move the freight, we also manage the flow of freight from point of origin to point of final destination. Difficult challenges, changing requirements and the pressure of deadlines is the reality and our team of experts undertake the process of ensuring that the moving of freight is done in the right time, in the right condition, to the right place, at the right cost.

Our team’s first priority will be an in-depth route survey in order to: 

  • Identify all obstructions and intersections 
  • Arrange civil work for all route modifications 
  • Organise transport assistance for all abnormal load transportation 

Once the route survey as been completed and modified, the rest of the transportation process can begin, and this generally involves: 

  • Component handling and port storage 
  • Abnormal load transportation on modified routes 
  • Mobile cranes available to ensure lift capabilities of between 7T- 750T 
  • CAD based rigging studies to ensure precision and accuracy in all lifts
  • Offloading, prepopulating & erecting of tower sections
