Marine Concrete Batching
Learn how we put a marine concrete batching plant onto a barge in Sweden
Marine Concrete Solution
Producing concrete can be a challenge. When concrete is needed on a remote Island the challenge can be even more difficult to work out.
Sjöliv Markentreprenader AB found a very good solution.
Sjöliv Markentreprenader AB
Sjöliv Markentreprenader AB carries out marine civil engineering and property projects in the Stockholm archipelago.

They also undertake:

The Challenge and Solution
The price for concrete in Sweden is quite high, and when the construction project is on an Island, the cost is even higher.
The company won several projects building homes on the Stockholm, archipelago. The problem was getting concrete to build the foundations and infrastructure.
Jonas Jalakas and Rikard Beckman from Sjöliv Markentreprenader AB had the idea of putting a concrete batching plant on a barge to reduce cost and time.
Jonas and Rikard selected a Fibo B1200 with a big bag cement silo to put on a barge to solve the solution.
The concrete is placed using a concrete pump or put into dumper
After Sales Service
Rikard ordered the B1200 with a modem to allow for an internet connection to the plant software. When the plant was being set up for the first time, there was a technical problem.
An engineer from the Fibo head office dialled into the plant and fixed the problem within an hour of the issue.
Rikard said, “I was impressed by the actions of Fibo when we had a technical issue setting up the plant.
The after-sales service was second to none. A Brilliant service and company to deal with. I would recommend Fibo to any contractor looking to be in control of their concrete supply.”
Fibo delivers confidence and a great product.”
