Sustainable Graz is ready for a green future

In an era in which we increasingly experience the effects of climate change, sustainable initiatives are more important than ever. Helios is a good example of this. This Austrian project – unique in Europe – combines heat from solar energy and landfill gas with extensive storage capacity. A complex project which, among other things, required the construction of a major solar thermal energy installation with solar panels covering an area of 2,000 m2. The energy generated by the installation is transferred directly into the city heating network in Graz.


The mine complex in Beringen (Belgium) covers 100,000 m2, making it the largest industrial heritage site in Flanders. Under the name of be-MINE, 32 hectares will be redeveloped to create an area for residential homes, businesses, shops and leisure facilities. Two construction companies, Van Roey Groep and Democo, have set up a trade association called THV Mijnbouw specially for this ten-year project. Their rental partner is Boels Rental.

Construction of apartment complex in Valkenswaard (NL)

For the construction of a modern apartment complex in Valkenswaard, in the Dutch province of Brabant, boilers were needed, among other equipment, to dry the concrete and screed floors quickly and effectively.

Boels shines its light on work in the Westerscheldetunnel

During the night of Tuesday 30 May and the early hours of Wednesday 31 May 2017, the Westerscheldetunnel (the Netherlands) was completely closed to traffic to allow annual maintenance and renovation work. Time was an important factor: Westerscheldetunnel Maintenance only had six hours to get the job done. Challenging? Yes, but not unachievable. The equipment and logistic plan provided by Boels Rental made it possible to achieve the desired result before the deadline.

Van Kessel, a member of the Koninklijke VolkerWessels Group.

Renovation of former locomotive workshop

The transformation of the former locomotive workshop behind the central station is regarded one of Tilburg's most prestigious projects. “It's as if the LocHal has given the city a piece of its history back,” says Boels area account manager Nick Welten enthusiastically. “And that’s precisely what made this assignment so special. Incidentally, that was also the case with the level of collaboration that we built up with the main contractor BINX Smartility – it was a real partnership.”
