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.
Oyfo Techniekmuseum (formerly Techniekmuseum HEIM) was founded in 1983 to present and preserve the industrial heritage of the Hengelo region. In the course of 2021, Oyfo moved to the Hazemeijer, a monumental industrial complex in Hengelo within walking distance of the station. The ideal place to connect technology, heritage, dance, music, theatre and visual arts. The move of the Technology Museum to the new location was a special event. The Wagenborg Nedlift team was there!

The morning sun at the Wagenborg terminal in Eemshaven isn’t very warm yet. Roelof and his colleague Jacob Hollander go over the transport plan. Jacob will soon be driving the mobile crane, Roelof the semi low loader. They are going to lift a cable reel of no less than 20 tonnes from a ship and place it on the low loader. They will then transport the colossus (340 cm wide and 590 cm high) to the high-voltage location. A matter of ‘staying focused’ and careful manoeuvring.
Wagenborg Nedlift’s bridge specialists attracted quite a crowd mid June. A new bridge was being installed over the Dortmund-Ems Canal and the residents of Münster came out in droves to watch the work up close.
