Since its original construction in 1914, the Panama Canal has been a source of high economic value and pride for Panamanians. The Canal gives passage to an estimated 15,000 vessels and 280 million tons of cargo annually. Despite the Canal running around the clock at 90 percent of its maximum capacity, the Panama Canal Authority (ACP) could not keep up with traffic and some ships had to wait several days for passage.
Wacker Neuson’s customer of many years, Ready Betontechnik, an industrial flooring specialist operating across the whole of Europe, recently produced over 2,200 square meters of floor installation and smoothing for a production and warehousing facility in Lauterecken near Kaiserslautern. The efficient floor smoothing and polishing work was carried out using the Wacker Neuson power trowels CRT 36 and CRT 48, which provide exceptionally high performance and user friendliness.
Efficiency and cost-effectiveness are vital factors for the German contractor BTH (Boden-Technik-Hehl). Precision work according to a specific time plan is absolutely essential on concrete job sites, since the concrete has to be processed as quickly as possible. BTH uses up to six Wacker Neuson ride-on trowels for a major project in Mühldorf, Upper Bavaria. Approximately 80,000 m² of flooring for a production and assembly hall need to be troweled.
