June 27 - Mammoet has transported and installed a 385-tonne bridge structure in Edmonton, Canada for Supreme Group.
The structure, which measured 57.25 m x 11.4 m x 4.3 m, was installed using Mammoet's accelerated bridge construction method - or ABC approach - which allowed the structure to be assembled away from the bridge foundations in a controlled construction area.
Three Liebherr cranes - an LTM1500, LTM1400 and LTM1300 - navigated the small construction site to lift the bridge structure and set it on 24 lines of self-propelled modular transporters (SPMT) for transport and placement.
Mammoet moved the bridge structure into place and set it on its abutments overnight, during which the road was closed to allow for safe passage of the SPMTs.
According to Mammoet, this method removes hazards associated with working near traffic and eliminates the need for working at heights, as well as minimising congestion and traffic delays.
