Construction of SILO shelving in the HDF boards factory
The works in the HDF boards factory started at the beginning of January. The planned construction is a 26 m high \\\\\\\"silo” shelving with automatic stacker crane. The assumed load-bearing capacity is 15 tons at the highest storage level.
The first stage of work consisted in the survey the base plates for the rack, the layout of the rack grid and the preparation of the rest and refreshment facilities for the later work stages. These operations were performed by 7 people in 6 days.
The next step was to start drilling holes under the feet of the structure (a total of 680 holes with ø 24 and 130 holes with ø 35). Due to the exceptional strength of the flooring, these works are carried out exclusively with boring machines. In the meantime, prefabrication of construction elements began. Up to date, about 20 people are involved in the works.
In the coming days, we shall begin to install the tower which will support the structure. After the surveying performed by our own employees, we shall be able to proceed with the erection of further construction elements.
