Moving a PET factory from Germany to the Netherlands

How do you move a PET factory from Germany to the Netherlands? With DDM

Dismantling specialists from DDM first meticulously mapped out the factory. They determined the ‘as-built’ situation by a combination of measuring and 3D scanning. After each part had been carefully labelled, everything was dismantled. With the exception of the concrete structures, each part was labelled, packaged and relocated. The other structures and the foundations, which were largely made of concrete, were demolished. The site in Germany was handed over, looking as if nothing had ever been there.

At the new location in Rotterdam, each component was put back in the right place. All the nuts and bolts were screwed in and the cables were reconnected. The collaboration with the client was perfect: the factory is running again as before.
