Mobile factory for international markets
Max Bögl is aiming for a strong presence on the global market with its mobile factory concept. To meet the challenges posed by the need for great hub heights outside Europe, the group of companies offers its single-source hybrid tower system, including mobile production, first used to build a wind farm in Thailand. A modified tower concept has been created with a mobile factory for international markets. This newly developed system for wind turbines with hub heights between 140 and 180 m enables the concrete sections to be produced directly on the project site while maintaining the high-quality standards of the renowned tower system.

Nuttlar's new landmark
Nestling gracefully into the landscape, the Nuttlar Valley Bridge is an impressive masterpiece of engineering, forming part of the new 5.6 km stretch added to Autobahn 46. The more beautiful a bridge, the more complicated its construction is. The extension to the BAB 46 between Velmede and Nuttlar is one of the most unusual road building projects in North Rhine-Westphalia, involving 30 years’ planning and licensing procedures, 880,000 cubic metres of earth excavations and 13 bridge construction projects totalling over 2.3 kilometres in length.
