Berlin – the “heave” They know on the Baltic coast. The huge floating crane grabs with its lifting capacity of 100 tons more away than any other work unit in the region. For 50 years made the workhorse of its services – including civilians, as the builders of the Water and Shipping Authority, were often hope for help. But then the era of “heave” ended abruptly. Because not enough experts are there to control him, and also taps the private sector are sufficiently available, is the “heave” since the end of 2013 for sale.

Chronic deficit also work the State Winery of the town of Radebeul, the tropical hall in Potsdam or the baths in Oberhof, which after losing a little less money after an extensive renovation than before.
