SEH Engineering GmbH contracted Mammoet to move one bridge section to the installation position. Due to its weight of around 1,100t and dimensions of 66m by 34m, a full closure of the highway section was necessary. So, it was important that this operation proceeded as per the schedule and as reliably as possible.
The simplest approach - stacking the bridge section on the abutment benches using climbing jacks - could not be used because the bridge has a slope in both its longitudinal and transverse directions. Therefore, the abutment benches would be both at an angle and at different end heights.
