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