I have been home now for some time after my India adventure and me (and my family) enjoy it very much! Of course, being at home for a few weeks to move to our new house is great. In this way, we had the chance to pack all household goods in a very relaxed way and to unpack everything at the new address and to settle in. After all that carrying of furniture and boxes it is now time to “set to work” since the pot must be kept boiling!

In the past few days I have been to Offenbach, Germany, for a job assigned by DDM Demolution located in De Meern. For 18 months now, DMM has been busy dismantling a chemical plant there. Part of this project was the dismantling of a jetty (wharf with loading station for inland vessels) along the river Main. I have been asked to supervise the removal of  three steel dolphin constructions. Compared to my previous two projects it is of course a very small job but I take as much pleasure in it!

By means of a 220 tons Faun telescopic crane a PVE 2323 vibrator we have managed to extract the steel, hollow sections with a length of 13 metres from the German soil. After  that, we cut the sections into pieces on the riverbank using a cutting torch so that they could be transported to a scrap dealer. All in all, a nice job for a beautiful company. I hope we can continue our cooperation!

Meanwhile I am busy finding new assignments. I would welcome a long-term project but to be honest, the work that I did last week also appeals to me very much: After fulfilling a supervisory role in two projects, the actual manual work with machines made a welcome change!

 To be continued!
