The construction of the bridge in Komárno between Slovakia and Hungary is without a doubt a demanding project. The central bridge pillar from which the carrying ropes will flow consists of steel segments, some weighing almost 50 tons.
Company Kranimex Ltd. deployed tower crane Liebherr 630EC-H 50 Litronic for this construction.
Installation of crane
The crane was assembled using Clark ÁDÁM, the largest floating crane in Central Europe.
The biggest challenge of the bridge construction project in Komárno was anchoring the tower crane. Due to the continuous deflection caused by the increasing weight of the pillar, the crane had to be anchored several times between the phases of climbing.
1. anchoring – 53,1m from the ground
2. anchoring – 88,0m from the ground
