The long-vehicle or the difference between a tandem for the football team, and a necessary solution for mammoth transports. Yes, exactly! The speech is of heavy transports be carried out preferably in the evening or at night, or during off-peak times on German roads. With a length of up to 23.60 m, with a width of up to 3 m and a gross vehicle weight of more than 40 t, heavy transports are a gigantic spectacle. Even goods that exceed these limits, can be carried across as transport from A to B by Germany. This impressed in addition to the remarkable performance of the driver of such transports, as the enormity of the goods to be transported. Huge published transformers, construction cranes and components for wind turbines affect years the viewer such as genetically engineered accessories from the popular Fisher-technology box of the 70s and 80s. But the huge or particularly heavy goods transport is not only on the streets a considerable challenge. Also within a company, it may be already tricky if, for example, a voluminous or loading of component must be carried by a Hall in the next.
But until a transport also internally, a company is possible, a bulwark of logistical, organizational and structural engineering excellence is not uncommon necessary, because with a stroller, so gigantic goods can be most difficult transport. At the beginning is always the question with what vehicle and this special challenge which equipment can be implemented in practice. A suitable towing vehicle is found, it must now analyze the required heavy duty trailer must meet the requirements. It is to comply with necessary safety provisions and to take into account the static conditions to meet specific additional requirements for the heavy load racks in practice delivers what it promises. A failure of the trailer during transport, could see Circumstances bring fatal consequences. Metal construction companies such as metal construction-Maas from Nordenham in the North Sea, specialise in the construction of individual transport systems and heavy load hanger and have grown the requirement to develop single special designs depending on the requests, to construct, and ultimately to make.
In doing so, the possibilities are almost endless and leave room for individuality. Flat cars, transport tables or special solutions such as the A cars for the transport of large components and metal sheets are implemented in Nordenham and found worldwide in use. After the metal construction company has sent the heavy duty trailer on the journey, the driver now takes over the sometimes the most important part of the overall company heavy”and shoehorned the precious cargo skillfully to curves and even through the eye of a needle. While he does not often so some feat. Probably, it is really easy to build a tandem even with 11 men and therefore across the country to cycle, as a heavy load of a Carry out the factory premises.

Baden-Wurttemberg universities have largest studies offer sustainable mobility Baden-Wurttemberg universities are fit for electric mobility. Nationwide find here prospective students the widest range on the topic of sustainable mobility,”Science Minister Theresia Bauer of one of the Central results of a Germany-wide analysis is summarized to the academic qualification in the field of sustainable mobility. The Baden-Wurttemberg offering characterized in particular by, that not only technical aspects in the training are anchored, but that also the competence of the system forms a focal point in many courses. Just the transformation towards electric mobility offers the opportunity to grasp the concept of innovation, Bauer reiterated at a press conference at the Centre for virtual engineering of the Fraunhofer IAO. In its capacity as Chairman of the Board of mobile BW stressed it: how we need technical innovations, we need new answers, which Transport concepts can find social acceptance. The system of electric mobility is complex. For sustainable mobility solutions, it is essential to deal with socio-scientific issues in addition to technical BW’s Managing Director Franz Loogen confirmed mobile.
Sustainable mobility is a project, which touches various topics, here is therefore required interdisciplinarity,”added Prof. Dr. Wilhelm Bauer, Deputy Head of the Fraunhofer IAO. System understanding and interdisciplinarity are asked for in the economy generally, Germany has a highly differentiated qualification offer for sustainable mobility, which wise however large regional differences. Apart from Baden-Wurttemberg at the top also North Rhine-Westphalia and Bavaria can boast a dense range.
The proximity to the automobile industry play an enabling role. The study shows that is the diversity of the Baden-Wurttemberg University landscape as a major competitive advantage because the educational system produces many university graduates both practice-oriented graduates of other high school, noted farmer. The comprehensive study of the academic education in the field of sustainable mobility, where nationwide more than 600 courses were compared and company were interviewed directly, allows a differentiated analysis. The study, Baden-Wurttemberg wants also his contribution to the work of national platform electric mobility afford to advance sustainable science policy and innovations in Germany. The study had shown that despite generally sufficient education involvement in some key areas even more should be next, Minister Bauer. These include the battery storage, energy systems, overall vehicle concepts/integration and load management and fuel cell technology. Here, the companies make up a rising need for personnel. The offer should specifically be developed further “, affirms Loogen. Especially in the further education offers at universities after first studying the study sees further potential for expansion. Match supply and demand In the area of sustainable mobility, there is a wide variety of courses. To enable a better orientation for prospective students, the scientists recommend to create more transparency. Often find it difficult prospective, to identify relevant courses for themselves, although there is a wide range. Both companies want fast, reliable information on where you can find candidates with the required skills, makes it clear Managing Director Franz Loogen relevance mobile BW.

A LED lighting concept for a historic building that is completely new in this form”, Batz on the barge trip explained to the guests. In time on the anniversary of the Association, Philips provides an implementation solution based on LED technology. LEDs are”highly energy efficient and much more durable than conventional lighting, Philips communications Chief Klaus Petri added the cooperation with the light-art Association. And It can be used quite specifically there, where the light is needed to achieve the desired effect without irradiate everything just with light.
