Salzbergen is home to one of the oldest refineries in Germany. As early as 1860, lamp oil and lubricants were produced here. Today it is home to a technologically advanced refinery complex with modern blending, bottling and logistics facilities. A recent project saw the addition of six new storage tanks. It was up to Wagenborg Nedlift's lifting specialists to place these on their foundations.
The Chemelot site in Geleen aims to become Europe's first circular chemistry site by 2050, using sustainable, non-fossil raw materials and energy to produce plastics for everyday use. This transition requires adjustments to the infrastructure and facilities. Last summer, two huge storage tanks had to be transported to the site for an infrastructure project. This required the temporary closure of the A2 motorway. A major transport challenge!
Countless bridges link the banks of the Ruhr. This is also the case in Duisburg, where four adjacent railway bridges over the Ruhr Canal have been given colourful names to distinguish them from each other. After the 'gelbe’(yellow) bridge was replaced a few years ago, it was now the turn of the 'violette’ (purple) bridge, a lattice railway bridge built in 1917. Not an easy job for Wagenborg Nedlift's bridge team!
Large equipment, horizontal, vertical and heavy transport are typical for the work of Wagenborg Nedlift. This seems to contradict the ever increasing focus on being sustainable. oBut is this true? But is this true? Johan Dorgelo, Commercial Director, explains.
During the spring of 2022, Wagenborg Nedlift participated in a major project in Leverkusen, Germany. Work was commissioned by two civil contractors to remove an old railway viaduct. Wagenborg's crew then installed two new spans at the same location. This involved not only lifting but also sliding, says Peter Eijffius, project manager on this heavy duty job.
Erik Reilman and Kevin Medendorp are working together for a while now at the preparation and management of all kinds of lifting projects. How that works out in daily practice? The duo gives an insight.
A well-known name within Wagenborg and beyond. The face behind many transformer projects, including the Vierverlaten project. But who is Bert Maathuis exactly? What drives him and what challenges him as Senior Project Manager International Projects at Wagenborg Nedlift? We talked to him.
The Meeden high-voltage substation has existed for 50 years and is an important link in the power supply for the region and the rest of the Netherlands. From Meeden, there is also a connection to a high-voltage substation in the German town of Diele, so that power can be exchanged between the Netherlands and Germany.
