Sarens NV – Sundsvall Bridge – Liftpontoon
Transport and installation of bridge sections for the new Sundsvall Bridge.
We were engaged by Sarens NV to undertake third party verification of the marine engineering aspects of the transport and installation of the bridge sections. A range of verification assessments and analysis was performed by Mwaves to support the Sarens operation. The bridge sections were successfully installed in 2013.
- Third Party verification of Sundsvall Bridge loadout and barge stability;
- Structural analysis of lifting gantry supports, grillages and braces;
- Stability analysis for the range of barge loading conditions;
- Motions analysis for the transports including the hoisted bridge condition;
- Dynamic mooring analysis for the barges with the bridge sections hoisted;
