GP Günter Papenburg’s new site Keunecke Spedition – Ilsede (DEU)

Tank cleaning Papenburg

The existing cleaning facility in Ilsede has been modernized. Ready for the future!

GP Günter Papenburg is a large German consortium of approx. 50 companies that are mainly active in the field of construction. To support all construction activities, Papenburg acquired Keunecke Spedition in 2007. Keunecke had been active in the dry bulk transport for many decades. With the head office in Ilsede, close to Hannover, the location is ideally located to serve customers throughout Germany.

After many years of service, the existing cleaning facility in Ilsede needed to be modernized. An ideal moment to take a close look at the efficiency of the system as well. In cooperation with a local company, Gröninger and Papenburg designed a solution whereby a combined heat and power system is used to generate the heat to heat up the cleaning water. To make the renovation even more challenging, the system needed to be installed in an existing basement. This forces Gröninger to design a frame that included the pumps, water tank and control panels.

The new facility can clean and dry silo trucks according the latest standards. Worker safety is guaranteed by the use of fall protection and a special pedal to operate the hose cleaning nozzle. The system uses the latest software to control and visualise any step in the cleaning procedure. An internet connection enables remote access for system changes and updates. This makes Papenburg ready for any future challenge!
