Area 3 - post Elia Gezelle to post Stevin Zeebrugge:
Franki working as general contractor.
On this project, we delivered much more than only the foundations. We delivered a total package, including: study, negotiations with terrain owners, preparation, access route, platform work, foundations (of course!), concrete works...
At the end, only one third of the contract was dedicated to piling work.
The Stevin-project is a huge infrastructure project that aims to reinforce the high tension electrical grid from Zomergem to Zeebrugge. The project includes:
In this project, Franki Foundations has realized new foundations for 79 electrical pylons 380 kV, and reinforced 19 existing pylons (to switch from 150 to 380 kV).
