The Fisherman´s Friend StrongmanRun, the mother of all steeplechases, is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year! The idea was a wild success in Germany from the start – thanks to thousands of fancifully clad participants, for whom no obstacle is too high, too wide or too wet. Yes, other European countries also want to be a part of this great fun, and Italy has been participating since 2012. In this year’s run in Rovereto, a city near Lake Garda, Trotec was also there in top shape – in the form of its TTW 400000 wind machine.
A few days ago, Rovereto experienced an exceptional situation: over 5,000 wildly clothed participants of the StrongmanRun bound along the blocked off route through the small upper Italian city into ice cold water and as a team conquer a total of 16 challenging climbing hurdles of hay bales, water pits and overseas containers. A very special obstacle for the runners is running toward and past an enormous stream of air blowing from the TTW 400000 axial fan from Trotec: With an air power of 432,000 m³/h and a top wind speed of up to 100 km/h, the largest of our wind machines makes passing this obstacle a real challenge for all runners.
TKL – the experts from the Trotec Group rental centre – were responsible for the well-planned logistics of the 2,800 kg unit. The transport and construction of this behemoth is a tad different from moving around the smaller models. With the help of our heavy duty transport and a crane, the impressive unit, which is also equipped with an extremely robust transport frame construction, was able to be set up on the StrongmanRun obstacle course. Including, by the way, a power supply – because for a wind machine of this magnitude, TKL obviously had to provide its own power unit.
