Disassembly and reassembly of a reworked hydropower turbine
ORDER FOR MATTE POWER PLANT ON THE RIVER AARE IN BERNE
Dismantling and reassembly of a reworked hydropower turbine at Matte power station on the River Aare in Bern.
EMIL EGGER dismantled the guide vane and the impeller with a total weight of 24 t and brought it from Bern to the ANDRITZ manufacturing plant in Kriens, for a general overhaul.
After the overhaul, we transported the turbine back to its place and also took over the assembly with the help of a pneumatic crane.
Thanks to our driver Luca d’Oliveira for the vivid photos and the whole team for the professional handling of the job.

Replacement of three old RHB steel bridges by ETE crane logistics
Not far from the fashionable spa and resort town of St. Moritz in the Swiss canton of Graubünden, a Liebherr LR 11000 crawler crane has installed a 176-ton railroad bridge. This most powerful crawler crane in Switzerland belongs to the logistics and transport company EMIL EGGER AG and got the job done at an altitude of just under 2,000 meters in the Alps – with an unusual setup configuration due to lack of space. In total, three aged truss bridges of the Rhaetian Railway were replaced by the Liebherr crane.

Stable construction with mobile construction crane and transport of large wooden trusses
Fascinatingly fast erection of a house for laying hens in Neuenegg. The wooden trusses were delivered via special transports and our mobile construction crane, together with Renggli’s assembly team, ensured the rapid placement of the large components on site.
At the beginning of this new year, we like to take a look back at the start of the project of the century – the new dam on the Grimsel.
The dam is a double-curved arch dam with a volume of about 215,000 cubic meters of concrete.
By the end of the 2021 construction season, around 35,000 cubic meters of concrete have been used, which means that around 16 percent of the wall has been built.

Precision lift of a bridge in Gossau SG with 750 tons crawler crane
In its first operation, the new 750 t crawler crane from EMIL EGGER moved the new bridge onto the prepared abutments in a precision lift that took less than an hour. For the modern powerhouse, the 190 t were a good start to working life.
This is the most modern crawler crane in the world. The machine delivered by Liebherr to EMIL EGGER is only the third of this type presented in spring.
