Project
Type: Bridge, length 2145 m (7037 ft.)
Typical Span: 70 m
Deck width: 38,2 m (16 m with MSS + 2x11,1 m with cantilever machine) | 125 ft (52 ft. with MSS + 2x36 ft. with cantilever machine)
Typical Cross Section: Box
Equipment features
Model: MSS M1-70-S
Construction Type: In place
Type: Overhead MSS
OPS System: Integrated
Performance: 14-day cycles
Challenges
Construction on water; the equipment to be used would have to be autonomous and the supply of materials have to be done using the previously built deck
Large and heavy deck, with complex geometry
Tight radius of curvature on plan and variable and accentuated longitudinal inclination
Intersections of the deck with access ramps
Quick execution capacity
Solutions
Equipment wholly autonomous of auxiliary means, lifting the supports by own overhead cranes
M1-70-S with OPS System allows deformation control
Deck load control during launching operation
Deck extension using cantilever machine
Complete opening of the formwork
Results
Work in progress
