Contractor BUNTE renovates flow control structures on the river Main


Renovation work in Viereth
Using an exacavator with a drum cutter attachment from Kemroc

The flow control barrage at the village of Viereth am Main (Germany) went through major renovation work. The pillars to the side of the weir had to be modified to suit the design of the new weir gates. Specialist contractors JOHANN BUNTE Bauunternehmung Gmbh & Co. KG used a KEMROC KR 120 drum cutter attachment mounted on a 35-ton excavator to carry out the work. This combination provided maximum performance and precision while minimising viaration the cloud damage the historical structure constructed from plain, unreinforced concrete.
