Aarsleff sents out first load of heavy L-walls for Harbour Project in Port of Gothenburg, Sweden
Yesterday, the first barge with precast concrete elements to the Per Aarsleff A/S harbour project in Port of Göteborg, Sweden, has sailed away from their facility in Świnoujście, Poland.
The barge sailed out with 12 pieces of heavy L-walls (with average weight of 210 tons and heights of 7 to 9.5 metres), 4 pieces of flat 200t beams and 479 pieces of small pile caps. Aarsleff is to provide 35 L-walls in total. The total cargo weight was almost 4.300 tons.
They are part of the Masthuggskajen extension. Last year, Aarsleff won the contract from Älvstranden Utveckling AB for the construction of a large peninsula in the Port of Gothenburg. The peninsula will be 200 metres wide and extend 100 metres out into the river and will eventually house a brand new district called Masthuggskajen.
The installation of big L-walls by floating crane, provided by Marine Group, will start at Masthugskajen within a week.
