Work is busily underway on the Emmerich–Oberhausen rail line to expand the capacity of the line and to free up the bottlenecks. The installation of a new rail bridge over the Rhine-Herne Canal in Oberhausen, which will complement the existing four bridges, is a significant milestone in the project.
For the past year and a half, there were a lot of developments regarding construction of the sustainable new water supply system in North-East Groningen. In addition to the creation of a new industrial water supply system, no fewer than 28 kilometres of industrial water lines and 44 kilometres of drinking water lines were installed.
Sustainability is hot. Together, we need to ensure the world we leave to the following generation is one worth having. Wagenborg Nedlift also proactively approaches this theme by consciously opting for clean equipment, such as electrically powered tower cranes, electric compact cranes, etc.
At Wagenborg Nedlift, sustainability is not just about reducing CO2 emissions but also the question of how to sustainably pass on know-how from one generation to the next? How can you ensure sustainable transfer of knowledge, in order to avoid losing know-how (and therefore quality)?
Sustainability is a strategically important factor at Wagenborg Nedlift. We see it as our duty to society and to future generations, to contribute optimally to a liveable world. Investing in innovative and sustainable equipment is a logical step in achieving this. In doing so, Wagenborg Nedlift is significantly contributing to the increased sustainability of building and construction work in the Netherlands and further afield. An update on the latest developments.
The railway bridge over the A14 in Plate (near Schwerin, Germany) was in need of replacement. The new arched bridge was assembled next to the motorway on a tiny building site and had to be installed during a short closure of the motorway on the weekend. A nice challenge for the heavy lift specialists from Wagenborg Nedlift!
There has been much road work on the Autobahn A30 between Osnabrück and Hanover to renew the lanes and renovate bridges. The Werrebrücke is situated near the village of Löhne, crossing the river of the same name. This required reinforcement with heavy steel beams. The Wagenborg Nedlift specialists came up with an inventive solution for the installation of the beams.
The Lessing Tunnel in Hamburg is a 110-metre-long railway underpass located north of the Hamburg-Altona railway station. Six new tunnel sections, each weighing 340 tonnes, were brought in for the renovation from a construction site 2.5 kilometres away. A great challenge for the Wagenborg Nedlift transport specialists
