Worldwide industrial services company Harsco Corp. secured nine new contracts in Germany totalling about $5 million to provide rental formwork and related access services to several large construction projects in Germany’s infrastructure sector.
The projects include a new headquarters building for E.ON Ruhrgas AG, one of Germany’s leading power suppliers, featuring two elliptical 15-story towers.Harsco will provide nearly 65,000 square feet of rental formwork. It will also supply formwork for construction of a new lime works plant being build in Steeden, Germany; a new waste incineration and processing plant; a new hotel in Berlin; and more.
