Little space – much to do: The restoration of the Karawanken Tunnel is more than challenging. It’s a good thing that Wacker Neuson has the right construction machines in its portfolio for such confined construction sites: the innovative Dual View dumpers. The eight machines used on the site ideally suited to this kind of task. With the operating and seat console that can be turned 180 degrees, material transport in Strabag AG’s construction work in the Karawanken Tunnel is no problem, as strenuous turning and maneuvering are no longer necessary thanks to the rotating seat.
Vibratory rammers, plates, rollers – Wacker Neuson offers the right compaction equipment for almost every application: from the 30-kilogram vibratory rammer to the 7-metric ton drum roller, the right equipment is available for every type of soil compaction. How does this work in practice? It works like this, here on one of the Kassecker construction company’s construction sites in the Munich inner city, where the wide range of the Wacker Neuson portfolio for soil compaction is put into application.
Are battery-powered tools only for special applications? Far from it! On a large construction site in Vienna, the battery-powered compaction equipment and compact electric machines are proving that they too are perfectly suited for daily practical use. Read on and see for yourself.
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.
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.
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.
