20,000th foundation pile installed

Thousands of foundation piles have been placed on Project ONE’s construction site in recent months. On 24 April, the 20,000 foundation pile was festively screwed into the ground.

The foundation work is being done by Franki Foundations and De Waal Solid Foundations. Project ONE Programme Construction Manager Edwin Secker was given the honour of screwing the 20,000th foundation pile into the ground on Wednesday 24 April 2024. For the occasion, that one was also given a golden touch.

A new milestone for the construction of our ethane cracker in Port of Antwerp-Bruges! The foundations will carry the future installations and infastructure. By the way, did you know that all foundation piles are ‘screwed’, as this technique ensures less noise and vibration?
