Customer's benefit

  • saving of expensive tie points (only two tie layers at 4.65 m concreting height)
  • moving of VARIO and CB as climbing unit in one crane lift
  • climbing in 2-week cycle
  • smooth and safe striking and moving
  • punctual completion
Vernon Abney

Striking and moving worked easily and safely. It only took us 13 days for one concreting section with the PERI climbing formwork solutions, and thus we are able to adhere to our schedule.

PERI solution

  • delivery of 468 completely pre-assembled, rounded-out VARIO panels, 3.20 m wide and 4.90 m high
  • 80 climbing units for each reservoir, supported by CB 240 climbing platforms
  • friction-locked connection with VARIO articulated coupling
