This spring, NAM closed the gas purification plant in Emmen. Dismantling of the plant was recently started under the supervision of SGS Search Ingenieursbureau. On Monday, 19 November, Wagenborg Nedlift had the honour to remove no fewer than five engines from the plant, using its 500-tonne mobile crane. The engines, weighing approximately 60 tonnes each, were removed completely according to plan on the instructions of VSM Sloopwerken. The total dismantling process will take approximately one year.

Today the characteristic Groninger Museum, which is surrounded by water, was one of the locations where Wagenborg Nedlift was given the opportunity to demonstrate its creativity and ingenuity. Commissioned by BAM Bouw en Techniek, today it replaced the old air handling unit with a new one. But how? Because of the water, this is not the easiest location to position a crane. That is why it was decided to place a 300-tonne mobile crane on the nearby Ubbo Emmiussingel, from where it could lift the unit from the roof of the museum and place the new unit, thus 'bridging' the water.
