Facilitating construction

in remote locations

A real


Despite the growing trend of urbanization throughout the world, half a billion people today live in isolated areas. The lack of transportation infrastructure due to geographical, environmental or economic constraints is the main cause. Climate change aggravates this isolation as many existing infrastructures are threatened. Isolated populations find themselves facing a lack of daily infrastructure, public buildings or private housing, and the economic development of these regions is prevented.

Accelerate the

development of the

high-voltage network

Construction in remote areas can take many forms. The installation or dismantling of high voltage lines can be extremely complex depending on access conditions, topography, etc. Traditionally, in complex areas, the erection of a power tower is for example divided into sections so that it can be transported by helicopter section by section. This is a costly method with a very high environmental impact in a world where electrification is on the rise.


rotation of LCA60T only required per tower

Up to 80%

savings compared with helicopter assembly operations

58 to 86%

cost reduction of airlift operations

To participate

in the development of these

isolated areas

The LCA60T solution will accelerate the development of remote communities by providing large-scale transportation of building materials and equipment with minimal impact on ecosystems. Energy infrastructure development, building and housing projects will now be possible. More urbanized areas will also be able to benefit from the services of the LCA60T in the case of space-constrained construction sites in congested areas.

“The FLYING WHALES transport solution will allow EIFFAGE to rethink the organization of construction sites in remote areas, reduce its carbon footprint, improve factory design, optimize logistics preparation and reduce on-site assembly operations. Compared to the means of transportation currently used, financial, environmental and also travel time gains are anticipated to maximize flexibility, safety and security of freight.”
