The Longest Steel Box Girder of Croatias Peljesac Bridge Successfully Erected
Recently, after several hours of continuous hard work, the R3 steel box girder with a weight of about 655 tons and a length of 56 meters was stably erected in place, and the steel box girder of the longest section of the bridge was erected successfully, marking the completion of the erection of the steel box girder of the approach bridge of the continental side span.
In order to meet the hoisting requirements, the project team carefully organized, repeatedly demonstrated and refined the deployment, and finally adopted the construction technology of integral hoisting with the 1000-ton floating crane, the 28m-long segment hoisting tools, and the 18m-special hanger, achieving successful hoisting and precise positioning. This type of hanging method is technically difficult and requires high precision and innovation; it is another practice for the project team to implement the advanced concepts of standardized management and assembly construction. All the indicators, after being tested, are found to meet the requirements of construction monitoring specifications.
Panoramic View of Bridge Project Construction
The Peljesac Bridge Project in Croatia is the largest transportation infrastructure construction project undertaken by a Chinese enterprise since the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Croatia, and is a key national livelihood project since the founding of Croatia. The completion of the bridge will realize the long-cherished wish of the Croatian people to link the north and south of the country, and effectively boost local economic development and personnel exchange.
