Superlative Containers for Borealis Schwechat

A separate motorway exit was even constructed for transportation

Again and again huge components depart the Kremsmüller production halls. As a result, extremely complex and demanding special transport operations are frequently called for. A particularly sophisticated transport has now hauled two 90 tonne containers, each 4.1 metres in diameter, from Kremsmüller in Steinhaus to Borealis in Schwechat. A new motorway exit even had to be constructed at the destination to allow the huge containers to pass safely.

The containers themselves also offer a certain degree of ingenuity. Boasting a double-walled design, they are actually a container within a container, with an intermediate space of 12 millimetres. A coating of glass-fibre-reinforced plastic (GRP) with a minimum thickness of 2 millimetres was applied to form the shell. The containers will be completely buried horizontally in the ground at their destination to guarantee constant climatic storage conditions. Florian, our foreman in the workshop, can be justifiably proud of the work of his crew.

Impressive components and a splendid project, completed by our employees to the customer’s complete satisfaction!
