Baghdad Bismayah (Bismaya) combined-cycle power plant is being developed by Iraq’s Ministry of Electricity, approximately 25km south-east of the Baghdad city.
Massenberg, established in 1906, was first renowned as a leader in rust removal and coating work on public and industrial buildings. In 1970, the company branched out into concrete rehabilitation and is now one of the top five specialists in Germany.
Massenberg specialises in car parks, cooling towers and commercial buildings, providing complete service, from surface preparation, concrete repair with PCC and shot-crete / guniting concrete, to protective coating.
The company complies with ISO 9001:2008 standards and SCC**, ensuring that its customers receive a professional service with a modern management style.
Reinforcement of concrete buildings
Massenberg is also an expert in the reinforcement of concrete buildings. Factors such as air pollution or road salt can expose the technological shortcomings of a building, leading to a number of problems. When a building undergoes this type of increased stress, Massenberg’s concrete reinforcement service may be required.
Structures may also require reinforcement due to the desire to preserve history. Massenberg significantly contributes to the conservation of monuments and is a member of the Quality for the Preservation of Buildings (GEB) and the Landesgütegemeinschaft.
Massenberg buys its materials as complete systems from several manufacturers, including Sika or MC – Bauchemie. This way, it is free to select the system that is most suitable for each individual job.
Concrete protection for chimneys and cooling towers
Despite the rapid development and continuous changes of the materials and methods of concrete protection, there are already proven methods in place and Massenberg believes its processing and application requires specialists. A prerequisite for applying this coating is appropriate surface preparation.
For this, the company has been developing high-pressure water jet technology and a variety of facilities, including a fully automatic, personal independent blasting system. Such technologies make it possible to reinforce concrete chimneys to a height of up to 300m and cooling towers to a height of 200m.
Anti-corrosion coating treatment
Anti-corrosion coating treatment is one of Massenberg’s specialities, and its experience in this field is continually expanding with every project executed. The anti-corrosion coating treatment process must be performed under optimal conditions that depend on a number of aspects, from accurate planning and a good knowledge of each coating system, to experience within the environment and the internal concerns of the builders.
Massenberg has more than 30 compressors of all sizes, mobile halls with automatic abrasive processing, extraction and filtering, devices for flash and steam-rays, and high-pressure spray devices of different dimensions.
Anti-corrosion coating treatment for power industry buildings
Massenberg can treat everything from mobile bridges, stationary scaffolding, and chimneys, to pipe interior surfaces with special nozzles and the interior and exterior of tanks. Areas covered include the chemical and energy industry, bridges, mining, sewage and harbour facilities, and general fabrication plants, such as automobiles. Any waste products from the process are disposed of according to the latest rules of environmental protection.
