23% steel saved by design optimisation
The supply of malt by ship can reduce the number of truck movements on busy roads, which contributes to the sustainability program of this large beer producer. To transport malt by ship, a new 290-metre-long malt transport line that connects to the malt collection building has been realised. Iv-Industrie constructed the main steel structure and took care of the foundations and the infrastructural changes to the port area. Optimisation of the construction resulted in 23% less steel usage; a cheaper solution, but with a finer design.
