Transport of two bridge sections, s-Hertogenbosch, Netherlands
ALE successfully completed the jack-up and transportation of two bridge sections in s-Hertogenbosch, The Netherlands. The sections weighed 480t and 360t.
Firstly the bridge sections were jacked up using 500t jacks. Once the correct height and angle of the sections were reached, four 2-file, 6 axle SPMT trailers were positioned under the strong points of the bridge sections and the weight of the sections transferred to the SPMT trailers. The jacking equipment was then removed and the bridge sections moved by the SPMT trailers to their final position.
After lowering the bridge sections onto their bearings, the trailers were removed. The whole operation including mobilisation and de-mobilisation, the jack-up and transportation took 12 days.
