Shipment of steel beams for highway bridge in the UK

By 24 de August de 2015August 6th, 2023News, Projects

ALTIUS is transporting 21x steel girders, measuring up to 35 meters in length and weighing up to 95 tons, which will be used to build a new bridge on the M-8, M-73 and M-74 freeways in Glasgow-Scotland, UK.

On the loading date (day 12/08/2015), the loading operations of the parts took place on board a coastal vessel without its own lifting means in the Spanish port of Seville.

All steel beams and other equipment were loaded on board the vessel in just one day.

ALTIUS’ own team of engineers engineered and came up with the solution to stow and ship all the parts in a single sea voyage thanks to a complex stowage plan, which optimized the available space on the ship.
