Hisingsbron cargoes move through Seville

Heavy and oversized components manufactured by Tecade for the Hisingsbron bridge project in Gothenburg, Sweden have passed through the port of Seville, Spain.

The Hisingsbron project involves the replacement of the old Göta Älv drawbridge in the centre of Gothenburg. Spain’s Tecade was contracted to supply structures for the tram access viaduct, the metal support columns, pylons and the lifting span.

To facilitate the assembly and transportation of the largest components of the project, the Seville Port Authority (APS) granted Tecade an administrative authorisation to operate a 1,512 sq m plot in the port.

Here, Tecade has direct access to the waterway to move structures measuring 45 m long, 37 m wide and up to 3 m high. Some components, according to the port, weighed 600 tonnes.

The most recent shipment saw the last pieces of the railway viaduct depart the port in mid-April. This included 20 modules measuring 30 m in length, with a total weight of 530 tonnes.

The tram access viaduct is made up of 38 metal modules and corresponding support columns that, once fully assembled in Gothenburg, will measure more than 464 m long.
