Next-Gen Wind Blade Mover: Ready to Conquer Rough Ground

A demand the Danish engineering company of handling equipment, SH Group, recently fulfilled by re-designing today’s solutions into a very easy-to-maneuver vehicle with unmatched lifting capacity (up to +80T in current configuration) and excellent stability and driving abilities – even on rough ground and uneven terrain.

“The new blade mover solves a huge challenge making off-road transportation and maneuvering of large blades not only easy, safe and secure, but also less time consuming”, says Jimmy Gehring, Head of Wind - Sales, SH Group. The solution is a dual transport system with a root-end mover and a tip-end mover. The root-end is pulled by a tractor or similar vehicle. All functions, including fork lifting operations can be operated from a hydraulic panel. The steering of the tip-end vehicle is operated by a technician walking next to the mover with a wireless remote control.

“We’ve created a robust construction prepared for the blades of tomorrow. It offers rock-solid stability and a unique all-wheel steering system that makes lifting and precision-positioning both easy and time-saving on storage sites with uneven ground and narrow handling space. On top of that the equipment can be mounted and dismounted within 5 minutes without violating safe practices”, Jimmy Gehring explains. The Head of Wind also points out: "When the operation is completed the tip-end mover is loaded on top of the root-end and the empty blade mover can be returned to the storage site at normal speed by the tractor. All this adds up to a more cost efficient and timesaving operation than less mature solutions offer.”

The Blade Mover System is developed on demand for a leading global blade manufacturer and is already approved and in full operation on several storage sites.
