April 2008 - Crawler-Mounted Cable Reel

STEMMANN-TECHNIK GmbH again beats an in-house record in terms of size: The delivery of the first crawler-mounted cable reel for company Vattenfall Europe AG for power supply of the conveyor bridge in the open-cast mining site Nochten has been effected.


The design and production time for the crawler-mounted cable reel took 6 months, the complete device being 15 m long, around 3 m wide and 5 m high. Additionally to this a sliding carriage as a trailer vehicle was supplied which is another 12 m long and 4 m high. Without load this vehicle in total weighs approximately 45 tons. It serves for storing and releasing cables which supply the huge conveyors in the open-cast mining with power. The hydraulic drive of the vehicle has a power of around 500 hp.


In total STEMMANN-TECHNIK is supplying three crawler-mounted cable reels and two sliding carriages.
