Two new assembly buses
In August 2015 the assembly department got two new assembly buses. One is a standard bus and the other one is a truck with hydraulic crane. Both of the buses are a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 519. Beside the cargo space, the bus also has a double cabin so we can transport several mechanics. Because of the roof rack we don’t always have to take a trailer with us.
The hydraulic crane can be remotely controlled. The hydraulically foldable support legs ensure that the car remains stable when lifting. The combination of truck and crane provide a flexible and fast usability. More pictures you can find on our Facebook page.
New propulsion system for a 3000 ton carousel
For one of our offshore clients we delivered and assembled a 3000 tons onshore carousel in Eemshaven. On this carousel we used a new propulsion system. Below you can find a video with this new propulsion system.
In September we delivered a 4000 tons carousel in Korea. The Korean media also noticed our activities and filmed it. They made a report about the company that makes and lays down the cables.

Trial set aramid fabric
Commissioned by a banking consortium we made a trial set. The aim of the test was to see if the steel construction could resist the explosion forces of a plastic bomb. Eventually the construction went down by an amount of C4 bigger than the requirement that is necessary. Below you can see a picture of the explosion.
