Tianjie assists bridge transport

March 27 - Guangdong LIFT Engineering Machinery Co Ltd (GPEC) has used 64 axles of Tianjie Heavy Industries S2.34 SPMTs to transport a 1,650-tonne steel structure for the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge (HZMB) project.

The bridge section, which had the dimensions 87 m x 33.1 m x 4.5 m, was transported on four groups of two six-axle self propelled modules and one four-axle self propelled module, with a 390 kW power pack unit (PPU).

Each combination supported one side of the structure, while the four PPUs were connected and controlled by one remote control, which ensured that the bridge section remained stable with no deformation.

The project took place at a site in Zhongshan in the Guangdong province of China, where the transportation space was only 140 m long and 20 m wide, which proved a challenge for the Tianjie and GPEC engineers.
