Reference Projects

For more than 20 years now, we’ve been committed to making our customers successful worldwide. Complex projects around the globe are our home turf


    Makkah (Mecca), Saudi Arabia

    Scope of work: Jewel-shaped facade structure made from aluminium nodes and bars approx. 580 m above the ground

    Client: RIVA Engineering on behalf of the Saudi-Arabian royal family

    The Abraj Al-Bait tower in Mecca is a spectacular, once-in-a-century project and the tallest clock tower in the world.

    The clock is crowned by a walk-in, semi-transparent glass “Jewel”. From the outside it is reminiscent of a cut sapphire consisting of more than 1000 glass panes, each 65 millimetres thick.

    Approximately 400 tons of aluminium were waterjet-cut by AQUAtec and 5-axis CNC machined to make the nodes and bars for “The Jewel”.




    Scope of work: Bars and nodes made from duplex steel for the movable skylight

    Client: RIVA Engineering on behalf of the Saudi-Arabian royal family

    Large, movable domes made from glass and steel and measuring 17 x 28 metres were chosen for the extension of the Great Mosque of Mecca.

    These so-called “movable skylights” are computer controlled and can be opened across their entire length and width. In spite of their huge size, they exude lightness and elegance.

    Almost all parts were completely manufactured by AQUAtec. More than 2000 tons of duplex steel were needed to make the nodes and bars.




    Scope of work: Machining of the side walls and roof units

    Client: ST Extruded Products Group (STEP G) on behalf of Bombardier

    The side walls and roof units which had been welded by STEP G from aluminium extruded profiles were intended for Bombardier’s AVENTRA train family.

    Where welding distortion had occurred, AQUAtec machined the components in a special jig until Bombardier’s specified tolerances were achieved. Both fixed and floating clamps were used for this purpose.



    Scope of work: Waterjet cutting and machining of rails made from Dillidur steel

    Client: Max Bögl on behalf of the City of Amsterdam

    Rails made from wear-resistant Dillidur 400T steel were manufactured together with AQUAtec’s partner Kersten Europe to replace heavily stressed tram tracks in Amsterdam.

    Our service package centred around two of AQUAtec’s core competencies: material-friendly waterjet cutting, which enabled Dillidur steel’s good wear resistance to be maintained, and machining of the parts, some of which had to be given wheel profiles.

  • Aston Martin Vantage V8 & DB11


    Scope of work: Machining of the aluminium front and rear frames

    Client: thyssenkrupp System Engineering on behalf of Aston Martin

    The front and rear frames for the Aston Martin Vantage V8 and DB11 sports cars are welded from cast aluminium parts and extruded aluminium profiles.

    These parts were machined by AQUAtec absolutely precisely on highly dynamic gantry milling machines, where they were held in floating clamps.

    As specific added value for the customer, the start of production for this interim project took place only a few weeks after the initial contact.



    Scope of work: u.a. 3D design of the multi-storey car park facade

    Client: RIVA Engineering on behalf of gsp Städtebau

    At 172 metres, the Grand Tower at the gateway to Frankfurt’s European Quarter – in the triangle between the convention centre, the bank district and the West End – is Germany’s tallest residential building.

    We were charged with the planning and 3D design of the facade for the adjoining multi-storey car park, which has space for 427 cars.

  • 60 London Wall Aquatec



    Scope of work: Facade sections in stainless duplex steel

    Client: Josef Gartner Permasteelisa Group

    This original, post-modern, six-storey office building in the heart of the City of London is situated between London Wall and Copthall Avenue and was completely reworked and refurbished after being stripped back to the frame.

    The project included a structural glazing facade with carrier frames for an overall area of 17,000 square meters.




    Scope of work: Door systems, including structural glazing

    Client: Lindner Steel & Glass on behalf of the Emir of Qatar

    The Museum of Islamic Art in Doha was built in 2009 by Ieoh Ming Pei, one of the world’s greatest contemporary architects, on a man-made island near the West Bay harbour district.

    The world’s first museum devoted entirely to Islamic art, it accommodates art treasures of the Middle East from thirteen centuries on about 45,000 square metres of floor space.
