Combilift Straddle Carrier saves Time and Space for Caunton Engineering
Structural steelwork contractors and fabricator Caunton Engineering has taken delivery of one of Combilift’s newest products, a Combilift Straddle Carrier, which is being put to very effective and space saving use in the storage yard of the company’s premises in Nottingham.
Ferguson Modular has taken delivery of a Combilift Straddle Carrier, the first to be implemented in North East Scotland, to improve safety and efficiency when loading and unloading the company’s accommodation modules - a procedure which previously involved a combination of standard forklifts and mobile cranes..
Collaboration by two companies known for innovation in their own particular business sectors has facilitated the production and transportation of a revolutionary new design of wind turbine tower. Irish based materials handling provider Combilift and Danish manufacturer Andresen Towers pooled expertise to address the logistical challenges involved in manufacturing and moving extreme lengths of product which form the basis of Andresen’s new tower construction.
One of Combilift’s largest capacity models to date - a 28t capacity Straddle Carrier (Combi-SC) - is now in operation at Caledonian Modular’s site in Newark near Nottingham, ensuring much more efficient and safe transportation of finished modules from the manufacturing facilities to the storage yards.
