Works Description:

We received the assignment for the transportation of the Bridge from Mammoet Europe/ A - lanes. The assignment entailed transporting the bridge from the Mammoet quay in Schiedam to the newly build Botlek bridge and placing it in the correct position in between the supporting pylons of the Botlek bridge. The bridge had already been placed and secured on two linked barges at the Mammoet quay. Our responsibility consisted of transporting and the installation of the bridge on site. We executed the transportation with two of the biggest harbor tugs of Rotterdam. Upon arrival on site we positioned the linked transport barges with its load transverse on the river in an anchor pattern. We then positioned the barges between the two pylons by the use of winches in the correct position. At this point Mammoet was able to lower the bridge by ballasting the barges.

Equipment on site:

  • 2x 78t Rotor tugs
  • 2x anchor barges 65,00 x 11,40mtr
  • Several winches in the capacity between 7t and 100t
  • 4x 7,5t anchors
  • HEBOCAT 15
  • CATHARINA 7, 8 & 11.
  • Several auxiliary equipment
  • Professional crew
