Moselle Lock, Trier, Germany

Opis projektu

Lokalizacja: Trier, Niemcy

  • New, second Moselle lock with a total length of 312 m from intake to outlet structure
  • Positioned next to the existing 170 m long lock facility, the new lock chamber is 216 m long and features a usable width of 12.60 m and a height of 12.70 m
  • Filling and emptying by means of longitudinal channels on both sides together with transversely-positioned branch channels
  • Large-scale jobsite whereby around 45,000 m³ of concrete was processed during the construction period of almost 1.5 years


  • Reinforced concrete structure with massive component dimensions and a high level of reinforcement, realized at a depth of 15 m within bored pile walls
  • Demanding construction project whereby numerous mounting parts and strict tolerance specifications had to be taken into consideration
  • In particular, the formwork and reinforcement work presented a major challenge

  • Realization of complex structural geometries by means of 3D boxed elements
  • Support for all technical, commercial and logistical tasks provided by a PERI project coordinator
  • Efficient and safe handling of the formwork and scaffolding systems from the start due to the on-demand support given to the construction site team by the PERI supervisor

This construction site is yet again another highlight for me. The lock facility was a demanding construction project whereby numerous mounting parts with very tight tolerance specifications had to be considered. The coordination was perfect: PERI supplied the formwork elements completely prefabricated - and there was no component that didn´t fit. My appreciation goes out to all PERI engineers who worked with us with their high level of technical understanding – a big thank you. The collaboration could not have been better.

Rozwiązanie PERI

  • Comprehensive overall solution with a project-specific formwork and scaffolding concept based on close cooperation with the project management
  • Pre-fabrication of all recess units and timber formers at PERI´s assembly hall; these were used, for example, for intake funnels, gate recesses and floating bollards – designed for providing efficient striking operations as well as ensuring reusability.
  • Just-in-time deliveries of precisely pre-fabricated formwork elements – quantities and timing matched to construction site requirements
  • Comprehensive, continuous on-site support
  • PERI project coordinator for coordinating the planning and assembly work as well as ensuring punctual supply of materials
  • PERI supervisor for briefing site personnel on the correct and safe handling of the systems and special formwork used in the project
