A safe and efficient use of wireless controls in Rotterdam
Construx is one of Europe’s leading mold makers for precast plants and on-site use. Throughout the years the Construx team learned to be creative and innovative. In the very competitive West European market you can only stand out if you are creative, and that is exactly what the Construx crew is good at. They are not a company with high-brow declarations but they are truly convinced that working together with Tele Radio is a choosing for a partnership based on audacity, expertise, quality, and flexibility.
For some of the automated precast molds that Construx produces, a Tele Radio remote control is incorporated; since this ensures safety, freedom of movement and speed in the procedures. They have chosen Tele Radio Panther remote system because these have a safety function. They are easy to use and install, and programmable according to the specific needs of Construx.
‘In comparison to the other brands that we have used before, Tele Radio provides ease of installation because we can adjust settings of the remote on site with our laptops through USB connection. That really gives us the flexibility we need!’ – Wouter Vandeputte, Technical Director
The HES HARTEL tank terminal
These images were taken at the Port of Rotterdam. Here, a 1,200 m deep sea wall and a 1,000 m quay wall is constructed with Construx precast molds; operated with a wireless Tele Radio remote control. The project started at the beginning of 2018. To get an impression of the project, there are 50 segments that combine the deep sea wall. Each segment exists of 150 tons of concrete iron and 1,040 cubic meters of concrete. All transported by more than 100 trucks.
At the construction site of 27 hectares, there will be 52 tanks for storage and transfer of oil products and biofuels by the end of 2021. The total capacity is around 1.3 million cubic meters.
