EGL Kadmar Completes Steel Beams Transport for El-Wasta Nile Bridge

Egyptian Global Logistics (EGL), a subsidiary of KADMAR GROUP, completed transportation of the steel beams for El-Wasta bridge over the Nile at AL Wasta, Beni Suef on 27 February. The job for the Nile Company for Roads and Bridges consisted of the delivery of steel beams (6 pieces) to the east and west banks of the Nile using their Goldhofer 12 axle lines turntable.

The task was complicated  because the weight of the beams was not balanced in width. The left side weighed 58t, and the right side 35t with cross girders of 4.50 m between them.

In the assembly area, loading was performed using 2 cranes with a lifting capacity of 300 tons each, which required performing critical maneuvers for loading by using a 6 by 6 turntable. To reach the installation position on the bridge, one heavy crane with a load capacity of 650 tons was used.

The beams were 47m long by 5.9m wide with a height of 6.75m. There weight was 110t.
