The project heads into the final stages. In the last news release, we reported about work at two sites; the building on the project site (Schlieren) and the testing in a remote hall (Arbon).
Since then, another important milestone has been achieved: assembling all components at the building site. Component testing has been successfully finished and the steel structure has been erected, including all parking platforms. On February 6, 2013, the tested components were transferred to the building site. It was a special challenge to transport the 13 meter, 17 ton lift system bridge from Arbon to Schlieren. The lifting devises then had to be installed in the steel structure using a 300 ton mobile crane the following day. Despite strong winds, snow and rain, everything worked as expected. Since then, the tower continues to take shape very quickly. The crew of more than 50 people is working to complete installation of all components and systems to move into the final test stage.
