Smits Vastgoedzorg will perform steel conservation for ThyssenKrupp Mill Services & Systems GmbH Oberhausen on 3 ‘A-cranes’ at the seaside of the EECV Terminal. In these 3 years the cranes will be completely refurbished.
Eurogrit BV supplies the blast cleaning abrasives that are being used for the surface treatment of the inside of the cranes.
The blasing and painting in a closed area 40 meters above the sea over a length fo more than 100 meters is quite a challenge. De surface treatment and corrosion protection is already done by Smits Vastgoedzorg for many years. The influence of coal and ore dust combined with the salt harsh sea environment and the high utility rate of the 40 year old cranes demands a specialist approach.
The abrasive used for the project is our expendable blast cleaning abrasive Eurogrit Aluminium Silicate (coal slag blasting grit).
