The first "green" wheel loader from Wacker Neuson with electric drive WL20e gets off to a good start in Norway. Among other things, it is currently being used to construct a new school in Oslo, as well as for demolition work in a food factory. For both projects, the machine's zero emissions were crucially important to the firm order placement.
The German consortium Neubau KW in Lünen, Germany, successfully relied on Wacker Neuson's concrete technology for concreting a turbine platform. In 2008, work started on a modern coal-fired power plant in Lünen, Westphalia. The contracting consortium of Heitkamp und Züblin relied on Wacker Neuson's advice and high-quality equipment for concreting the turbine platform. This helped them achieve superior results in a very short space of time.
The Panama Canal is about 82 kilometers long and cuts through the isthmus of the Central American country of Panama. More than 14,000 ships pass through it a year. The waterway connects the Atlantic to the Pacific and thus saves shipping the detour around Cape Horn at the southern tip of the continent. Among others, about 500 internal vibrators from Wacker Neuson are in use during the current expansion of the waterway.

Tie tamping, coarse gravel compaction, tie replacements - these are the main tasks of Strube Gleisbau in Buchholz near Hamburg.

On July 31th, when a tunnel boring machine dug the tunnel in a subway construction building site, the riverbed above the tunnel collapsed and the river water rushed into the site and submerged all the construction machines. Hangzhou government and municipal committee initiated a contingency plan immediately and allocated 25 dewatering pumps to the building site. Of the 25 pumps, 7 pumps were Wacker Neuson PT 6LT centrifugal trash pumps and 15 pumps were Wacker Neuson PTS 4V centrifugal trash pumps. The water was all drained after three days of continuous fighting, and reduced the losses to a minimum.
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.
