After 30 years Lybover BULK builds another concrete plant for Blomme on the old foundations
Since decades Blomme is active in the region of Nieuwpoort, Middelkerke, Veurne and Ostend and an established player in building materials and groundworks. On May 5, 1990 the previous concrete plant was solemnly put into operation. This was also a realization of Lybover BULK (Motogroup). 30 years later, Betoncentrale Blomme contacted Lybover BULK again to build a completely new concrete plant. Big challenge was to limit the production downtime to 6 weeks. After all, the new concrete plant was built on the old foundations. This project consisted of 5 large parts: aggregate storage, underground dosing and weighing unit, feed conveyor, mixing tower and various concrete silos. All essential components were built by our own production workshop in Bruges and Waregem.
Cantillana optimizes production and increases storage capacity
Cantillana is a family-owned manufacturer of building materials that offers reliable and durable solutions for every phase of the construction project, from structural work to finishing. Specializing in structural work, plastering and facade insulation, the Belgian family business has become a household name in the market over the past decades. The expansion of the product range and the various acquisitions have sustained its growth over the past 145 years. Lybover BULK was called in for the new project, with the aim of taking care of and optimizing the transport and storage of raw materials. The two existing round silos were demolished and replaced on the existing structure by three new square silos. With a volume of approximately 60 m³ per silo, the storage capacity was significantly increased. The existing steel structure was adapted and reinforced. For the distribution of the products to the existing production process, Lybover BULK supplied and installed nine transport screws.
The biggest challenge in this project was undoubtedly the time pressure. Moreover, the conversion was planned during the winter break in order not to suffer any loss of production. The installation within the existing environment also required the necessary attention. Good preparation proved to be essential here as well. "By working on the basis of a 3D scan of the existing infrastructure, a lot of time could be gained in terms of engineering," says Davy De Sutter, After Sales Service at Lybover BULK. Extremely accurate measurements, prefabricated production and fast problem detection by means of class detection ensured that the short turnaround time could be guaranteed. "Lybover BULK completed the work on time thanks to good preparation, in safe working conditions and with the necessary flexibility," says André Van Lathem of Cantillana. The silos themselves were produced by sister company Lybover METAL. The complementarity of the Lybover group was again an added value for this project.
Lybover BULK supplies to Gieterij Doesburg an EIRICH molded sand aerator which is robust and low in maintenance.
Gieterij Doesburg contacted EIRICH to improve the quality and efficiency of their moulding sand. Their existing moulding sand aerator was very maintenance intensive due to the charging of molded sand. They chose the EIRICH moulding sand aerator because it works without clogging of moulded sand and is therefore very easy to maintenance. Moreover, the EIRICH moulding sand aerator is very compact and easy to install on existing conveyor belts. It is also a very robust design where there is little wear on the tools. The moulding sand aerator ensures better sand distribution in the mold. Better compactability at the moulding line implies better cast quality with reduced post-treatment costs.
Lybover BULK (Motogroup) partner of FedBeton
In order to further develop its activities in the concrete sector, Lybover BULK (Motogroup) entered into a partnership with FedBeton, the federation for ready-mixed concrete, at the beginning of 2020. FedBeton represents the companies in the industry for the production, transport and pumping of ready-mixed concrete.
Thanks to this partnership, Lybover BULK can be present at the 5 regional meetings that take place twice a year, as well as the General Assembly. Tailor-made initiatives are always possible. This partnership will continue to take shape in the coming years.
The partnership has only just started, but a first tailor-made initiative is already in preparation. We look forward to a successful collaboration.
Group Peeters builds robotic bundle cleaner together with Lybover BULK
Since its creation, Group Peeters has been a trendsetter in the design and continuous improvement of specific cleaning machines. And there is also a lot of pressure from the customer base to automate more industrial cleaning activities. This in order to improve both safety and cleaning quality. The internal cleaning of heat exchangers is a delicate and important part of the overhaul work during a shutdown in (petro-)chemical and other process industries. Such a heat exchanger can have up to 1,800 pipes and a diameter of up to 1,800 mm. In order to further strengthen the market leader position in this critical activity, Group Peeters decided to have an automated cleaner built, according to its own design. For this complex robotized bundle cleaner, a partner was needed who could think along during the realisation, and adapt the concept where necessary. This is how Lybover BULK came into the picture.

Motogroup assembles new concrete plant
Willemen Infra is the largest Belgian road builder.
Motogroup moved the existing concrete plant from Bruges to the site in Ghent. The capacity of the hopper doubled thanks to six new hoppers.
We replaced the old weighing belt with a new one. From now on, a drive-up ramp is no longer necessary. We placed the old and the new hoppers in a cellar.
The conveyor belt to the plant was extended and the entire existing concrete plant was thoroughly overhauled.
The mixing unit was disassembled by Motogroup and got new bearings and seals. The motors and gearboxes underwent an external overhaul.
The dosing unit was also overhauled. We repaired the valves and the dosing funnels got new wear plates. Once the units were ready, they were shipped off to Ghent.
Motogroup assembled the hoppers, weighing belt and feed belt. There was a very short period of time between the dismantling at the Bruges site and the construction in Ghent.
Willemen has been using Motogroup for years for maintenance and various constructions.
