Construction of eight new coal blending silos Maasvlakte

Maasvlakte, Rotterdam

The construction of eight coal blending silos for the Rotterdam power plant.

The project

Design & Build eight coal blending silos for the storage of coal. The silos have a diameter of 21m and are 44m high.

 

We installed eight foundation slabs with 64 concrete piles beneath. Subsequently, the silos were raised and installed by means of slide technique. A total of 10 000m3 of concrete was used. In addition, the EMRA-building was also built. The walls of this building were partially constructed from prefab footings.

 

We also was made the foundations for the conveyor belt, some of which were augercast pile construction.

 

The project was carried in an operational area over a number of phases.
