Expansion at the port of Cuxport

The port terminal operator Rhenus Cuxport expanded its existing area in order to be prepared for the increase in handling. We took on the role of general contractor for this project.

Our services as general contractor

In addition to the engineering, we also took care of the production and installation of seven spun concrete masts, each 35 metres high, on which floodlight platforms for up to six floodlights are mounted. In order not to disturb the nearby railway traffic, we attached glare shields to the floodlights. We also used a special light-absorbing coating to minimise light emissions.

The electrical work we carried out included the entire low- and medium-voltage supply, including the transformer station, charging infrastructure with wall boxes, cabling and control cabinets for controlling the barrier arms. We also carried out the foundation work, installing a total of 384 metres of foundation piles.

In the shortest possible time

Due to the funding guidelines, the construction time for the harbour extension was set very short. We completed planning and execution within six months. Acceptance and commissioning took place successfully in mid-October 2023.
