Mega project in Hong Kong: Consultation in concrete technology by Wacker Neuson concrete solutions

Accepting challenges, developing solutions and accompanying projects – the Wacker Neuson concrete specialists are involved in these tasks. This was also the case with a superlative project in Hong Kong: A gigantic road tunnel that will connect the city of Tuen Mun (area 40) with Chek Lap Kok airport on Lantau island. The tunnel is part of a major project for connecting the metropolitan area Hong Kong – Zuhai – Macao. Two tunnel tubes with four lanes are being constructed over a length of around five kilometers with the world’s largest tunnel boring machine. The work will take place up to 55 meters below the sea surface.

Green construction site all around: emission-free design of a desert and jungle house

Green construction site all around: emission-free design of a desert and jungle house

It is called the “hellhole of creation” – the Danakil Desert in Ethiopia. This desert gave its name to the Danakil House, which will open its doors to visitors at the German National Garden Show (BUGA) 2021. But how can the desert and jungle house be designed without damaging the exotic plants through exhaust emissions? Quite simply: with emission-free solutions from Wacker Neuson. A visit to the – in two senses – green construction site in Erfurt, Germany.

Emission-free demolition in medieval fortress

Emission-free demolition in medieval fortress

Breaking up concrete floors? No problem. And that in an underground vault? Challenging – but solvable. During the reconstruction of a part of the Rosenberg fortress in Kronach, Upper Franconia, only machines with compact dimensions that could be used in confined spaces and work without exhaust emissions were considered for this task. An ideal construction site for Wacker Neuson’s zero emission solutions.

Experts in discussion: What are the advantages of the Dual View Dumper?

Experts in discussion: What are the advantages of the Dual View Dumper?

Dumpers – also called dump trucks – are very well known in the construction industry and very popular due to their numerous advantages in transporting material. The concept of the “Dual View” Dumper is totally new. In addition to the typical advantages such as flexible application areas, off-road capability and cost advantages, the Dual View Dumpers by Wacker Neuson add one more: a seat and control panel you can rotate by 180 degrees. Stefan Kurzmann, product expert on dumpers at Wacker Neuson, explains in an interview how customers can work even more safely and efficiently with it.

A completely emission-free construction site in Copenhagen

A completely emission-free construction site in Copenhagen

To lay new cables and, in doing so, interfere in the opening hours of shops in the pedestrian zone as little as possible – that was the city of Copenhagen’s task. For this reason, construction work was carried out predominantly at night or early in the morning. But how could this work without the noise level disturbing residents? The solution: only electrically operated and extremely quiet construction machines were used. A visit to a completely emission-free construction site.

Proper compaction – vibratory plates with compaction control

Proper compaction – vibratory plates with compaction control

If new paving stones for the courtyard entrance or a new terrace are planned, good preparation is important. This applies particularly to the subsurface, as every building is only as good as the foundation it stands on. To keep the ground from collapsing after a brief time, vibratory plates are applied for compaction. But how do I carry out proper compaction? This is where vibratory plates with compaction control really come into their own.
