Hydraulic steelwork – environmentally friendly transport routes

Waterways are indispensable to the economy. Almost every branch of industry uses them and relies on well-developed transport routes. With increasing freight traffic, the infrastructures are reaching their limits. Whether locks, ship lifts or weirs – together with our subsidiary IRS Stahlwasserbau Consulting AG, we not only plan solid construction but also the steel engineering and drive technology of hydraulic steelwork structures. We carry out complex large-scale projects for sustainably developing waterways as environmentally friendly transport routes.
