For the transport of windmill towers you need very special trailers that can do nothing else than just transporting those big pipes. A new Dutch company named Tower Bridge now has designed an installation that allows you to transport tower sections with your standard extendable trailers. The one on these photo’s is a Broshuis three axled triple trailer with lengths up to 36 metres.
The trailers is driven through the pipe with a diesel propelled small tractor with tracks and an adjustable fifth wheel. When the trailer is driven through the cargo the normal truck is connected again, and the Tower Bridge installation takes the load. This way the weight is correctly distributed over the coupling and the fith wheel and the axles.
