About 140 kilometers off the Norwegian coast, a unique floating wind farm is being constructed: the Hywind Tampen Floating Offshore Windfarm project. Eleven floating wind turbines, together generating 88 MW of power, will power the five offshore oil platforms at Snorre and Gullfaks.
Recently, a new bridge has been installed over the Emscher to the Emscherinsel in Essen-Karnap (Germany). And not just any bridge: besides being a bicycle and pedestrian bridge, it is also a pipe bridge. A handy combi-bridge! Wagenborg Nedlift's bridge specialists came on site for the installation.
In Germany, they are known as 'Expressbrücke': bridges that can be put in place or exchanged within a short time by means of an accelerated construction method or with pre-assembled bridge sections. A godsend, because it shortens traffic jams and disruption as much as possible. This is good news for the business community and residents of a country where some 4,000 (!) bridges will need to be replaced in the next ten years.
What a festive day it was for the Wagenborg Nedlift team yesterday! On this beautiful spring day, the new flagship in the crane fleet, the LTM 1650-8.1, was officially handed over at our site in Hengelo.
The largest and busiest motorway intersection in the North Netherlands is the Julianaplein in the city of Groningen. Two motorways, the A7 and A28, intersect here currently controlled by traffic lights. This situation leads to considerable congestion around the city. For this reason, Julianaplein is being completely converted into a new grade-separated traffic interchange.
