Capacity expansion at MAG Grimma
At the end of 2007 MWL Apparatebau GmbH Grimma, Grimma (MAG) started running of a second 125to crane in the fabrication and assembly workshop.
The present crane runway has been reinforced by additional steel girders on a length of 75 m. Together with the already existing 125to — crane the area for heavy pressure vessels will be tripled. This investment mainly has been realized by LHS Hebe- und Zurrtechnik GmbH, Berlin in cooperation with SHB Saalfelder Hebezeugbau GmbH, Saalfeld and Stahl- und Brückenbau Niesky GmbH, Niesky as well as by Attika Bau GmbH, Grimma.
MAG managing director Dr. Andreas Barg: “For our company this starting up is by far the biggest single investment for many years. Our worldwide clients confront us with ever bigger and heavier vessels. Amongst others this is essential for the (petro)chemical boom in Asia as well as for the European power plant business. With the new crane we believe being outstanding positioned for the upcoming challenges in the global competition to secure our middle-/longterm workload. We do thank our main partners LHS, SHB, Niesky and Attika for the cooperative collaboration and particularly for the completion on schedule.”
