Grootste afgraving in jaren van start aan Antwerpse Eilandje

65.000 m³ grond vervoerd langs de Schelde voor luxe-project Montevideo Residence

Vandaag zijn de werken voor de Montevideo-site op ‘t Eilandje pas echt van start gegaan. En dat is alles behalve alledaags te noemen. Onze grote rupskranen en grondverzetmachines zullen de komende maanden zo’n 65.000 m³ grond afgraven en via de Schelde afvoeren. Om deze gigantische karwei - de grootste afgraving in jaren op ‘t Eilandje - te klaren, zijn 44 vrachtschepen nodig die maar liefst 4.500 vrachtwagens - ofwel 9.000 ritten - op de weg zouden vervangen.


Aertssen zet hoogste beeld van Europa recht

Het hoogste beeld in Europa staat langs de E411 in Lavaux-Sainte-Anne, nabij Rochefort. Het beeld van de Franse kunstenaar Bernar Venet is 60 meter hoog. Om het te kunnen plaatsen, waren onze vrachtwagens en mobiele telescoopkranen nodig.
