Installation and commissioning of a second PRAD precasting manufacturing unit in Jijel, Algeria
Matière® teams have been in Algeria for some time as part of the construction of a second PRAD pre-tension prefabrication workshop.
This workshop was installed in the city of Jijel east of Algiers and corresponds in every respect to that installed a few months ago in Bejaia.
Its purpose is to prefabricate about 600 beams as part of the project for the 100 km long penetrating motorway between Jijel and the East-West motorway.
This workshop is movable, it is composed of 2 pre-tensioned prestressing benches for the manufacturing of PRAD beams with a maximum length of 36 m. The height of the beams is adjustable from 1.7 to 2 m and the autonomous steaming station is housed in a 40 m3 container.
The site’s technical assistance was provided by 2 employees and the first beam was removed on May 31, 2018.
