For the expansion of the sugar factory in Vierverlaten (Groningen, the Netherlands) Wagenborg transported and placed the sections of the new conveyor. The conveyor will transport sugar beets. Because of this new conveyor the sugar factory will increase her daily production capacity with 2.500 tonnes, up to a total daily production of 28.500 tonnes. 

Wagenborg transported and placed four conveyor sections. The sections are produced by Staalbouw Smid, located in Hoogkerk (Groningen, the Netherlands). On site the sections were transported by Wagenborg dolly combination until underneath the crane hook. The sections, measuring up to 40 meters long, 5 meters wide, 3,5 meters high and weighing up to 62 tonnes, are placed on their foundation by 500 tonnes and 700 tonnes mobile crane. Both cranes were equipped with a movable jib. A spectacular tandem lift. The Wagenborg team performed this job with accuracy and precision. 

During the summer the sugar factory is under construction and out of production. The factory will start producing again in September 2016.
