High-strength white concrete for the third largest mosque in the world

Twin-shaft batch mixer from BHS-Sonthofen proves its worth in a major project

Europoles delivered 618 supports made from white, high-strength spun concrete for the third largest mosque in the world in Algiers. The pole manufacturer from Neumarkt (Germany) produced the concrete for the up to 34 m high and up to 34 t columns with twin-shaft batch mixers from the BHS-Sonthofen DKX range.

The Great Mosque of Algeria is a vast cube with a capacity of up to 35,000 people. The production of total 618 octagonal concrete supports for the imposing structure was not an every-day project even for Europoles.
The Europoles plant technology department finally decided upon the most powerful and fastest mixer from BHS-Sonthofen - a DKX 1.25 with a rated output of 1.25 m³ of hardened concrete per batch. Due to its high filling degree, this mixer type is extremely compact while providing the required throughput.
