Press releases | 02/08/2017 Liebherr concrete mixing plant used to expand second largest airport in Russia

  • Up to 190 m³ output per hour
  • The plant works with the new generation of double-shaft mixer
  • Concrete production for the new runway

A high-performance Liebherr mixing plant is currently being used to expand an airport in Moscow and is supplying concrete for a new runway.

Moscow Domodedovo airport is growing extremely quickly and, with more than 28.5 million passengers per year, is the second largest airport in Russia. As part of the "Aerotropolis DME" project, a complete airport city is being constructed. The airport expansion includes business parks, logistics and industrial estates, department stores, and a technology and communication centre. In addition, the aircraft stands are being re-built and the terminal is being extended.

A Liebherr Betomix 4.5 DW concrete mixing plant is involved in expanding the Russian airport. The plant has an output of up to 190m³ per hour and is providing the concrete required for the new airfield directly on-site. The new runway should be completed by 2020.

The Betomix range has a modular building set system that can be adjusted perfectly to the widest range of requirements. The mixing plant is equipped with the latest generation of double-shaft mixer. All technical components are arranged clearly on the drive side and are easily accessible for maintenance and servicing work.

There are only a few comparable building projects in the whole world, for example, "Las Colinas" in Texas in the USA, "Zuidas" in the Netherlands, the Songdo business park in South Korea or "Panatropolis" in Panama.
