Chapter 8. How to keep safe to transport super long wind turbine blades on public road

The wind turbines are getting bigger, so the blades are becoming longer as well. So far the wind blades can reach up to 70 meters. Natural disasters affect the progress of transportation operations, causing great difficulties in transportation units. The traffic police should guard transportation in advance to avoid possible accidents during transportation. After the wind power equipment is transported to the site, the transportation and protection vehicles must be required to investigate the road conditions in advance to determine the safe traffic direction to enter the wind power site. At the same time, each vehicle is equipped with a particular vehicle commander responsible for the cars’ safe operation on-site.

Features of extendable windblade trailer

The wind blade trailer adopts the pulling structure to extend the length, and the wind blade lies flat on top of the trailer.

The significant feature of the wind blade transport semi trailer is that it is super long and has longitudinal expansion and contraction. Due to the super length of the vehicle type, the turning difficulty is significantly increased. To overcome driving on the curve, the wind blade transport vehicle is generally equipped with a hydraulic steering system, and the rear axle is fitted with a power station.

Considering the stability and the length of the windmill blade, the rear axle adopts its air suspension system, drawing and pulling the longitudinal beam freely, and has good trafficability.

The windmill blade trailer of the blade can be more than 60 meters long. It has three or four axle balance type, remote control power steering, and a mass balance block is installed between the front and rear leaf springs, which can change the deflection of the front and rear leaf springs equally and balance the force on the front and rear axles.

The bearing capacity is designed as 60 tons or more, the height of the main chassis frame is 550 mm, the width is 300 mm, the girder is buckle box type, the side beam is 250 mm I-beam, and the minimum cargo loading surface is 850mm.

SUSPENSION

Hydraulic, air, and mechanical suspension can be options according to different road conditions and specific project requirements.

Air Suspension

Suspensions of wind blade trailer could use mechanical spring suspension, hydraulic suspension, or air bellow suspension.

The air suspension would be best to protect the windmill blade from possible shock during transportation.

Hydraulic Suspension

Hydraulic windmill blade is an extendable telescopic beam connect with a hydraulic modular trailer, axle numbers could be three or above to adapt different weights of the blades. In this case, the hydraulic wind blade trailer has a bigger steering angle compare to that of the airbag extendable trailer.

The hydraulic suspension blade trailer has a lower cargo platform height than that of the air suspension trailer, also the lifting stroke is wider. The hydraulic suspension has advantages so the cost is higher than the air and mechanical suspension blade trailer.

Mechanical Suspension

The mechanical suspension is strong and at low cost, hydraulic suspension is suitable for heavier cargo.

Steerable axles

The hydraulic cylinders controls the steering of the trailer.

Due to the length of the trailer(together with the blade) could reach up to 70 meters, the most suitable way to realize steering is by operator’s manually control.

Extendable telescopic beam

The telescopic beam blade trailer is extendable to 62 meters. Sliding pneumatic locking system for telescopic boom on both sides.

The reels of wire are air brake hose and electric wire, make sure the brake system and illumination system are working while the telescopic beam extended.
