On behalf of the company ARGE Vorbausäule Schacht Neurode, FAM and REDPATH DEILMANN GmbH successfully completed the challenging project of the shaft reconstruction and turned the upgraded facility over to the customer. The project of K+S KALI Ltd. (Waste Disposal Subdivision) was aimed at the reinforcement of the shaft´s lower section at the depth between -446m and -474m, which was accomplished by using a hollow column made of densely welded steel segments that sustainably ensures the necessary resistance to the hydrostatic pressure at this depth.

The FAM Group contributed to the project by its profound expertise in the field of steel construction, as well as the extensive experience in welding techniques and developing of the associated assembly technologies, which for this project were produced by FAM´s subsidiary FAM Anlagen-Service GmbH and belonged to the approval package of the Mining Authority.

REDPATH DEILMANN GmbH, the company of the international REDPATH Group, being one of the global leaders in the shaft construction industry, provided the project with its special knowledge in the field of mining and shaft construction.

Particularly noteworthy is the excellent cooperation of all the parties involved in the project implementation, which not only facilitated an ongoing exchange of experience but also enhanced the partners´ growth in terms of expertise and professional skills.
