Road clear again at last
The offices in the on-site portable buildings are almost empty and the last section of asphalt is being re-laid at the Holledau service area. After just over six months, permanent activity is now clearly drawing to a close on the construction site between the Neufahrn intersection and the Holledau three-way junction. Traffic is freely flowing again and the hard shoulders can now also be used as a fourth lane during the rush hour. The risk of traffic congestion is thus greatly reduced on this much-used section. It is a relief for both motorists and project manager Günter Graf, who manages the construction site and can now look back on many arduous, but successful weeks.
Main frames for North Sea wind farm
Whether developing, planning, building or operating wind turbines, the Max Bögl Group is one of the leading manufacturers of high-performance hybrid wind turbines with its Max Bögl Hybrid Tower System. In addition to producing tower interior fittings and pre-stressed concrete and steel segments, Max Bögl is now extending its own wind power service portfolio with main frame manufacture for wind turbines for the first time.
It is relatively easy to obtain energy, but finding a flexible approach to storage is much more difficult. Naturstromspeicher Gaildorf, a joint natural energy storage plant project between Max Bögl Wind AG and project initiator Alexander Schechner, can do both – generate and store electricity.
U-Bahn line adds extension
The extension to U-Bahn Line 4 on the Hamburg underground will see its current HafenCity Universität terminus linked to the future Elbbrücken district in the eastern part of HafenCity, thus improving connections to the Hamburg transport network. The new section of the U4 will be built in a tunnel once the reversing and stabling sidings currently under construction are complete. The U-Bahn will emerge from below ground to travel through an over-ground trough structure to the new Elbbrücken station.
Longest immersed tunnel in the world
Late May 2016 saw the conclusion of the initial contracts between the Danish government and an international consortium, signalling the start for Europe's largest infrastructure project. An undersea tunnel 18 kilometres long is to be built between the German island of Fehmarn and the Danish island of Lolland, reducing the journey between the German and Danish coasts to just ten minutes by road and seven minutes by rail.
Since the new "NeuerMarkt" district opened in autumn 2015, the Bavarian city of Neumarkt has boasted a unique shopping, eatery and leisure space spread over 23,000 square metres.
Wind energy is a complex undertaking: Max Bögl is aiming for a strong presence on the global market with its system modification 160+ and mobile factory concept.
The Max Bögl Group is making a significant contribution to energy transition with its Hybrid Tower System Max Bögl. Thanks to state-of-the-art production and assembly processes, more than 1,100 hybrid towers have been produced since they were successfully introduced in 2010.
Wind turbines stand still without engineers and technicians
Our Max Bögl hybrid tower system is made of more than just concrete and steel, but is rather much more than the sum of its parts – strictly speaking, it's an electrical power plant. In order to master this complex field of activity reliably, the Eletrotechnik Wind division was established in 2012 under the leadership of Josef Bayer. Four years later, the team of experienced engineers and technicians today involves around 15 employees. Their tasks include planning and work preparation, production, operational management, special projects and project development. Here, we would like to introduce the experts in the individual fields.
planning mistakes and reducing calculation risks
Forward-looking planning and sustainable building – targets that Max Bögl supports by means of implementing "Building Information Modelling", BIM for short. The department made it one of its tasks from the very beginning to support the project teams in applying BIM. BIM has been developed and applied at Max Bögl for over a decade now. Thanks to the decade of experience, many applications are already well established. Headed-up by Alexander Kropp, a team of seven experienced BIM experts supports technical departments over the course of applying BIM processes from acquisition through to execution. The goal for 2016 is to support the individual departments within the company group to the extent that the BIM methods become routine – in particular the work preparation, deadline controlling and quality assurance.
