Siemens Energy has opened a new service building at its transformer manufacturing plant in Nuremberg and two Air Film Movers manufactured by Solving, Finland, have been installed to transport large transformers weighing
Fitted with electric drive units and latest generation controls the two new state-of-the-art Solving Air Film Movers can be driven when empty without being connected to the air supply network, which in turn means lower air consumption, lower noise levels and greater accuracy when positioning.
The handling system consists of two Air Film Movers that can be operated as single units for moving 350t transformers or combined for 700t units.When combined,Movers can be connected end-to-end or side-by-side. They have all necessary safety devices and communication to be controlled by one operator using one remote control unit.
