Conveying – storing – unloading

Completely mechanised.

Our material transport and silo units (MFS) allow ballast to be loaded, carried, stored, and unloaded mechanically, both to and from the construction site. PORR Bau GmbH owns units of type MFS 100 B, with an integrated loading station, and MFS 100 S, which has a ballast spreading option.
