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.

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.

Exhaust emissions from construction machines – current legal situation

Exhaust emissions from construction machines – current legal situation

Players in the construction industry must increasingly deal with new rules and regulations and stricter specifications for exhaust fumes and noise emissions when it comes to tenders. In addition, subsidies and advantages applicable to public tenders for the application of emission-free construction machines should be driving forces for fewer CO2 emissions in city centers.

Awards for zero emission solutions

Awards for zero emission solutions

It is not only in the world of actors and musicians that receiving praise from your industry has significance. In the construction machinery industry, awards and recognition for special performance carry just as much importance – because an official award is an indication that the manufacturer is on the right track with his product development. Wacker Neuson recently received not one but two awards for its developments in the field of zero emissions.
