Coal power

19 March 2008

Construction of the first coal-fired power station in Germany for 11 years has used three of Schwing's new S 52 SX truck-mounted concrete pumps.

During construction of the € 800 million, 750 MW plant in Duisburg-Walsum concrete for the 1100 m2 podium used a S 52 SXs to pump over 4000 m3 of C 30/37 concrete with 290 kg CEM III A 42.5 N in just 17 hours.

About 34 truck mixers were needed to supply 210 m3 of concrete per hour. Another 8000 m3 of concrete – C 30/37 and C 35/45 – will be needed to complete the podium.

The 47 tonne, five-axle S 52 SX features a 5-section boom with an overhead roll-and-fold system on a 12 m long carrier. Another new feature is a one-sided outrigger called Easy 200.
