Brief

A prestigious new tunnel under the River Elbe in Hamburg, required the production of precast concrete segments which exceeded German quality standards.

Solution

With a strict temperature tolerance, the aggregates had to be from a consistent source, quality and humidity. Yeoman Baumineralien were able to organise land next to their plant for the mobile precast plant, which included heated hoppers to store the aggregates at a constant temperature. This meant the material could be supplied on a continuous basis without the need for road transportation, reducing time, cost, carbon emissions and overall environmental impact.
