In Dubai, Al Faris transports world’s biggest buoy on 16 axle lines of Goldhofer SPMT

The heavy lifting and transport specialist Al Faris has recently completed the loading and transportation of a turret type buoy, one of the biggest and heaviest buoy in the world to be carried on road, from Dubai to Jebel Ali Port. The load, weighing 455t with a 18.3m diameter and 16m height, was transported using 4 files of 16 axles Goldhofer SPMT (self-propelled modular transporter) and was loaded by the self-jacking system of the trailer. The biggest challenge during the transportation was maneuvering the SPMT with the load in narrow routes, bottles necks and sharp turns as well as significant diversions and managing temporary traffic routes.
