Title (EN) MODULAR SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR TRANSPORTING TOWER ASSEMBLY OF WIND TURBINE
(FR) SYSTÈMES MODULAIRES ET PROCÉDÉS POUR TRANSPORTER UN ENSEMBLE TOUR D'ÉOLIENNE
Abstract:
(EN) A system and method are used for transporting a plurality of tower sections of a wind turbine on beds of transport devices, such as flat railcars. Supports affix at support locations on beds to accommodate at least one of the tower sections on each of the transport devices. The supports can include bed supports, such as tabs, extending from the beds, and can include cradle supports with slots that engage on the tabs. A circumferential dimension of a cradle is adjusted on each of the supports against which the tower section rests. Each of the tower sections is then supported with at least two of the supports by loading the tower sections on the transport devices. An end of each of the tower sections is then affixed to a flange on at least one of the supports on each of the transport devices.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système et un procédé qui sont utilisés pour transporter une pluralité de sections de tour d'une éolienne sur des lits de dispositifs de transport, tels que des wagons plats. Des supports sont fixés à des emplacements de support sur les lits pour recevoir au moins l'une des sections de tour sur chacun des dispositifs de transport. Les supports peuvent comprendre des supports de lit, tels que des pattes, s'étendant à partir des lits, et peuvent comprendre des supports de berceau ayant des fentes qui viennent en prise avec les pattes. Une dimension périphérique d'un berceau est ajustée sur chacun des support contre lesquels repose la section de tour. Chacune des sections de tour est ensuite soutenue avec au moins deux des supports par le chargement des sections de tour sur les dispositifs de transport. Une extrémité de chacune des sections de tour est ensuite fixée à une bride sur au moins l'un des supports sur chacun des dispositifs de transport.
