Removal of a styrene factory in Terneuzen

A major chemical products manufacturer asked DDM to remove an old styrene factory. DDM had successfully dealt with that problem before, that's why.

So DDM knew what she had to do. All asbestos was removed. The work includes the removal of various installations at various locations. Including the electrical systems, instrumentation, piping, equipment and steel structures.

DDM specialists used excavators to remove the lower and smaller items. The machines were therefore equipped with a scrap shear. The cut materials were sorted and collected with a sorting grab. Higher parts were lifted off with cranes and further processed on the ground. Storage tanks were demolished using a long-arm crawler crane. Installations were also dismantled for reuse. The life pipe bridges were protected during the work by scaffolding, steel floors and fireproof blankets. In some cases the concrete ground floors were removed. All waste materials are offered to certified and recognized waste processors and processed in accordance with the regulations and legislation.


  • 30 specialists
  • Different taps
  • Crawler crane 180T
  • Hydraulic cranes 200-750T
