Tilbury2 bridge takes shape

A 360-tonne bridge has been lifted into place as part of the construction of Tilbury2 terminal in the UK.


The steel bridge was towed 135 nautical miles from Rotterdam, the Netherlands to the construction site.The bridge measured 54 m x 15 m x 5 m and was transported by a pontoon from Hapo’s fleet. 

Bonn & Mees’ floating sheerleg crane Matador 3, which has a lifting capacity of 1,800 tonnes, lifted the structure into place. 

The bridge is the first of three components that will be installed over the next three months to create Tilbury2’s ro-ro facility.
