GALATA BRIDGE REPAIRMENT
Temporarily transferring the load of 4 bridge wings to steel carrying platforms built into the caisson.
After completing the work, dismantling these platforms and moving the load to the bridge, and commissioning the system
Galata Bridge could not be open for two years due to a breakdown on the bridge. Our company (at that time under the name of Nessac Ltd.) handled the repairment project. Now bridge wings are still working without any problem.
Aim of the Project; to cut and dismantle tearing parts on the main carrying steels of bridge wings, to replace them with new steels and do welding works, to update hydraulic, mechanical, and electrical systems under the new system, and do commissioning.
Four bascule bridge wings, which are approximately 1500 tons per wing, were repaired. For renewal, 600-ton steel was used.
