9 mobile cranes for new Knauf factory in Illange

Knauff Illange

With 9 mobile cranes, a new rock wool factory is under construction in the Illange megazone


Our teams have invested in the construction site of the future Knauf rock wool factory. To do this, it is indeed 9 cranes that were mobilized for this operation! Almost the entire range of 35 to 300T (including crawler cranes) was used on site.

The construction site of the future Knauf insulation stone wool production plant is progressing at a glance on the Illange megazone. A building that looks like a hive and reveals, both from the road that runs along it and from the highway, the metal skeleton of the future factory already erected.

The plant, initially scheduled to be operational in September 2019, seems to respect its commitment despite a mobilization locally important against the project, the plan runs smoothly in terms of the physical realization of the plant.

Almost only local companies including AltéAd.


This one is more prolix on the question of the companies intervening on the building site. Indeed, the commitment has been made several times to appeal for this, whenever possible, to local companies. "Currently, there are more than twenty local subcontracting companies involved in the project. All the others are mosellanes. ". This is good news for the local economy as it is a total of around € 6 million worth of investments that Knauf Insulation has spent on orders for these companies
