WASTE DUMP CONSTRUCTION
A more recent focus of Trapp is the field of constructing waste dumps. In July 1988 Trapp received the order from Abfall-Beseitigungsgesellschaft Ruhrgebiet to produce two approx. 60,000 square metre tip scaling covers with mineral sealing made of clay material with low water permeability values.
Organic domestic garbage and anorganic industrial rubbish were to be stored
on the two tip areas with maximum possible environmental safety being maintained.
This work could be concluded in record
time before the end of the following year, despite the fact that unexpectedly high tolerance injunctions had to be kept to particularly in execution of the clay sealing. Subsequently Trapp redeveloped the large tip at Gelsenkirchen as well as the central Castrop and Huenxe tips. Trapp completely built the large Dortmund North-East tip with an area of 240,000 square metres.
Trapp redeveloped the former industrial waste dump on the KERAMAG factory grounds in Ratingen, sealing the soil, and building a modern distribution centre for KERAMAG on the area thus obtained. The adjacent factory grounds were allocated a new use by a Trapp owned property development company after the old installations had been demolished. Trapp conceived developed and built a distribution centre for Deutsche Telekom.
The garbage incinerating plants at Oberhausen and Kamp-Lintfort were constructed by Trapp. The large-scale Kamp-Lintfort plant with a building value in excess of Euro 50 mill. was turnkey built in a mere 16 months.
