Shipyard Transporters

Shipyard transporters (SHT) from SCHEUERLE have revolutionized the transportation of individual sections up to complete ships in the shipbuilding industry. Extreme loads of 1,000 tons and more can be moved using only one vehicle. By combining several vehicles to form one large unit, extreme loads of 15,000 tons and more can be transported.

Precise steering and a hydraulic drive unit that allows accurate positioning as well as powerful lifting hydraulics make the SCHEUERLE shipyard transporters an indispensable piece of equipment for ensuring cost-effective logistical operations in the modern shipbuilding industry.
