Transport and lifting works at Moerdijk, Holland
At the site of Essent’s new powerplant in Moerdijk, Wagenborg Nedlift has been quite active with heavy equipment lately. First of all, the boiler modules of the new boiler unit were installed. With weights up to 243 ton per unit, Wagenborg Nedlift provided a 750 tons and a 350 tons crawler to do the job. Together with the Spanish construction company of the power plant, these lifting works were carried out completely according to schedule. In the meanwhile, a heavy transformer sailed from Korea to Moerdijk. It was a challenge to get this giant of 278 tons onto foundation. Wagenborg Nedlift’s hydraulic lifting gantry was perfect fit for the job and within hours, the transformer was put in place.
