Big pour

25 April 2008

Joint Venture Contractors Heitkamp and Bauer Spezialtiefbau will need more than 95000 m3 of concrete to complete construction of a new lock chamber on the Mittellandkanal near Wolfsburg.

The site team is using a Schwing KVM 52 truck mounted concrete pump fitted with a 45 m reach S 45 X boom to place up to 2000 m3 in each 20 hour pour.

Work on the € 70 million lock chamber will enable the canal to carry larger ships and is expected to be completed by the end of 2007.
