Erection of a splitter column in Ghent

A quote at Wirtz is detailed, free and fast. Nothing to lose.

Wirtz was in charge of the full logistical operation.  Six months before the effective start of the operation we did a full site survey. As soon as all preparations had been finished at Ghent, Wirtz arranged for transport to the Wharf. The splitter column was cut in half at the production floor, enabling road transport from the Ruhr-area to  Ghent.

Upon arrival,  Wirtz arranged a crew for the erection of the splitter column in three stages. After the bottom part, the top column was put in place place. We used a 700 tonnes mobile crane for lifting the column and a 200 tonnes crane as a tail crane. 

Wirtz does not only focus  on the  port handling, but takes care of all special handlings and logistics.
