Pumping and site testing
Yesterday, I joined our pump driver Jonas Carlsson out to the construction of The Marieholm Tunnel. We arrived at the construction site just before 6:30 to set up, and prepare, the pump for the first delivery of concrete at 07.00. The pump used was an M36 and we pumped a total amount of 200 m3 during the day. Many thanks to Jonas, who took the time to show me his work. It was an incredibly educational day!
Fortunately, I also had the opportunity to see how a site testing is done, as our two Samplers from Thomas Betong was in place to do a concrete slump test as well as an air concrete test. It was very exciting!
