To meet growing demand and ensure compliance with increasingly stringent requirements imposed by clients, authorities and architects, the Willy Naessens Group decided in 2007 to start up a new production unit for the prefabrication of wall elements.
This new plant pushes the boundaries of conventional wall production: a theoretical capacity of 1800 m²/day, wall elements up to 4 m high (floor heights), wall elements up to 12 m long, and well elements weighing up to 32 tonnes.
An ingenious concept allows this unit to produce a varied range of elements: industrial wall elements, walls for offices, supporting wall elements, grey concrete shells. In addition, a state-of-the-art mixing unit ensures the unlimited supply of constant mixtures, whether coloured or not.
To enable the supply of raw materials by ship, the unit was erected on the banks of the Scheldt. Power is supplied by solar energy, and an extensive water recycling installation obviates the need for an external water supply.
