Drilling with 600 m length beneath river Danube
On behalf of Bayernwerk AG, MAX STREICHER GmbH & Co. KG aA/division local network construction carried out a drilling beneath the river Danube between Thundorf and Niederalteich/Germany. With a length of about 600 m this drilling is the longest one, the division local network construction has realised so far. First, in Thundorf a horizontal drilling rig with a pulling force of 50 tons was installed. Over a distance of 500 m the drilling was carried out through rocky underground – therefore, special drilling tools for rocky conditions (mud motor) and roller bits were used. Regularly the pilot hole was checked directly by boat trips of the Technische Hilfswerk on the Danube. The reason for the drilling is the dismantling of overhead transmission lines, which run across the Danube and the necessary underground installation of a 20kV line. The cable conduit has a diameter of 250 mm and a wall thickness of 32.8 mm.
Snam Rete Gas awarded MAX STREICHER S.p.A. with the „Contractors‘ Safety Trophy“ for the second time
After 2016, once again this year, MAX STREICHER S.p.A. has received the award „Contractors‘ Safety Trophy“ for its careful and responsible activities under strict safety conditions from Snam Rete Gas. Despite the high number of working hours within Snam projects, MAX STREICHER S.p.A. registered no accidents. The basis for this award are the evaluation of HSE criteria, e.g. number of safety related incidents, audit results and inspections. Mario Bianchi, chairman of the board of MAX STREICHER S.p.A., explains the background: „Some years ago several smaller projects laid the foundation for the cooperation of MAX STREICHER S.p.A. with the customer Snam. The high quality of our services in pipeline and plant construction, our adherence to schedule and the compliance with demanding safety standards intensified the cooperation.“ Therefore, within the last years major projects like the gas storage facility in Bordolano or the gas pipelines between Zimella, Cervignano and Mortara were carried out. With the realisation of this contracts and further complex pipeline and plant projects, MAX STREICHER S.p.A. has developed to a leading company in this business sector in Italy. Today the company records an annual turnover of about 100 millions Euro.
Reconstruction of „B15“ in the area of Essenbach/Germany by MAX STREICHER GmbH & Co. KG aA/branch Landshut
Within a consortium the branch Landshut of MAX STREICHER GmbH & Co. KG aA has restructured a 9.5 km section of the main road „B15“ between Ergoldsbach and Essenbach. About 15,000 vehicles pass this section of the „B15“ daily, which connects the city Landshut with the junction of the „B15neu“ in Ergoldsbach. During the reconstruction works it wasn’t permitted to interrupt the traffic flow, with the exception of a complete closure during the last two weeks of the summer holidays. As part of the reconstruction of the whole crossing of Essenbach with a length of 1.2 km, a cycle path and parking area were installed, the sidewalk was restructured and two junctions including traffic lights were rebuilt. The contract also included the reconstruction of a 500 m section of the road „St2141“. The asphalt mixtures for all construction activities of STREICHER were delivered by the company’s own asphalt mixing plant nearby Unterwattenbach. Considering the detailed civil works and several modifications of the offered services the construction time of five months was very short. So some construction phases had to be carried out simultanously. In the beginning of October the project was scheduled on time to the client Staatliches Bauamt Landshut.
First Advanced Dark Ride System manufactured by ZIERER
GHOSTBUSTERS 5D – new attraction at Heide Park Ressorts Soltau, Germany
ZIERER has realised in collaboration with its media partner Triotech its first Advanced Dark Ride system at Heide Park Ressorts Soltau, Germany. The system with the name GHOSTBUSTERS 5D is an interactive amusement ride with multimedia effects. The ride has been introduced to the press in April 2017 and afterwards officially opened to the public. The Dark Ride System has ever since been giving passengers the illusion of immersing into the world of ghosts. ZIERER offers with this Dark Ride System a rail-guided vehicle, which offers the possibilities for Pitch & Roll as well as rotating. In total, the facility comprises 9 vehicles, which are approximately 3.5 m long and 2.5 m wide, including decoration. Each vehicle has 2 rows of seats for 4 persons each. Each vehicle includes 15 loudspeakers, four seat vibrators and a leg tickler, which touches the passengers at the legs, as well as four fans to provide wind effects and a switch cabinet for the control system. In addition, for each passenger there is an infrared camera serving as a "proton beam", which is used for targeting the ghosts as well as a display for the individual hits.
