Non-stop Production of Concrete in the Alps - LINEMIX® 3000 CM 410 H

In 2018, one of the most modern pumped-storage power plants will be put into operation in the Silvretta region. Two LINEMIX®-plants made by SBM will be able to show once again what they can at this project.

Only the most efficient suppliers and partners are employed where latest engineering is called for and strict environmental regulations have to be observed under extreme climatic conditions. A major challenge at the exemplary power plant project Obervermunt II of VIW – Vorarlberger Illwerke AG in Vorarlberg/Austria is the year-round just-in-time production of concrete in the Alps at an altitude of 1,700 m.

Ideal Choice

Mobile concrete mixing plants type LINEMIX® made by SBM are the ideal choice for these challenging sites. Two plants LINEMIX® 3000 CM 410 H are used in parallel in the Silvretta region to assure trouble-free and continuous production of concrete until October 2017. This is carried out by a twin-shaft mixer with 3.0 m³ each with a quality concrete mixing capacity of 130 m³ per hour depending on the required mixing time.

Trouble-free Logistics

Centrepieces of the building activity are the underground hydroelectric power station and the access adit where our client, the company Transbeton GesmbH & Co.KG from Nüziders, has started mineral processing directly in front of the dam wall of Vermuntspeicher. Without additional transportation the rocks to produce concrete are processed from the excavated material on the site. Rock storage is carried out by a mobile high hopper with a storage capacity of 410 m³. To be able to assure a 24/7 operation throughout the year both the rock storage and the mixing plant are provided with a completely winterproof insulation.
