As far as the eye can see: when standing in front of the SCHEUERLE InterCombi SP with the clamped rotor blade of a Vestas V126 wind turbine, it seems to drill directly into the sky. SCHEUERLE customer, Wiesbauer, easily managed to complete a series of tests at the Vestas production facility in Lem, Denmark - thanks to the SCHEUERLE rotor blade adapter of the second generation. With a length of 62 metres and weighing 13.4 tonnes, the test resulted in a new world record for a clamped wind turbine blade on a rotor blade adapter of this type.
Transporting rotor blades to wind power stations very often present haulage companies with a challenging task. Especially on the "last mile", the transport is often more difficult especially when tight corners or obstacles need to be overcome. Here, the rotor blade adapter introduced on the market by SCHEUERLE provides the answer to these problems. In the meantime, the second generation of the adapter is now available which benefits from the experience gained from the first generation. With the help the rotor blade adapter, rotor blades can avoid obstacles such as trees or buildings. Also on gradients or steep winding roads, the position of the rotor blade can be adjusted without any loss of time during the journey. Thus, rotor blades, depending on the type of wing, can be raised to an angle of 70° in order to comfortably avoid obstacles on the route. Due to an integrated slew drive, the rotor blade can be rotated around its longitudinal axis in order to provide as little wind resistance as possible. In the process, a sensor issues a warning signal if a parameterisable wind speed has been exceeded. Hydraulically-controlled counterweights ensure precise adjustments even on the most unfavourable ground conditions during self-propelled driving.
