46 axle lines of Cometto MSPE for Navantia

Ready for the future: the Spanish company Navantia S.A. recently received nine modular combinations of self-propelled MSPE 48t trailers from specialist Cometto. This adds up to an impressive total of 46 axle lines.

The supply includes five 6-axle modules type MSPE 6/4/2,43 48t, four 4-axles modules type MSPE 4/2/2,43 48T and two power packs with an output of 368kW each (equipped with the new Scania engine). Besides the impressive payload capacity, this self-propelled trailer excels thanks to the versatility in configuration and its maneuverability. The MSPE 48t also offers the best compromise between platform dimension, load performance and investment.

One single 6-axle MSPE module can reach a gross weight of 288t – amazing power on wheels! “Navantia is one of the main players in design and construction of hi-tech military vessels and civil vessels around the world”, explains Alessandro Giordano when asked about the main activity of its customer. The MSPE from Cometto offers the usual interchangeability and system expandability to adapt to any future needs of the customer.

For Simone Ricca, Cometto’s product manager, “the flexibility of Cometto allows specific solutions, also with regard to the tyres. These modules are equipped with solid rubber tyres as requested by the customer, assuring highest payload capacity and an excellent safety-factor.”

The two 368kW power packs are equipped with the first Scania engines that have been delivered after the recent partnership between Cometto and the Swedish automotive industry manufacturer. Each of them comes with the necessary kits for coupling and distance connection. This gives the customer all the possibilities to form lifting platforms of any dimension and shape, according to the specific cargo requirements.

Navantia offers integral solutions to its clients, as it has the required capacity to assume responsibility over any naval program in the world, delivering fully operational vessels and the required support throughout the service life of the product.

The company has developed naval programs in over 19 countries and currently has offices in Australia, Qatar, India, Turkey and Brazil.
