Successful partnerships bring milestones – The 721 Dolni Morava Bridge

Teufelberger-Redaelli is proud to have played its part in the construction of such a milestone, the world’s longest suspension footbridge in Dolni Morava, Checz Republic.

Following our motto “expect more”, is rewarding to see our work and commitment valued by our customers, as in the case of @Taros who, in order to thank us for being a partner in this incredible project, sent us official greetings. For such a complex engineering project Teufelberger-Redaelli has provided a complete package from the design of details to the production and supply of cables up to the installation on site.

The suspended span deck is hanged from the main cables between two pylons, and each pylon is anchored to the ground with back cables. Wind cables needed for wind stability are connected to the deck with secondary cables. The main cables have been installed with the support of a cableway, installed between the two pylons. Each main cable, delivered on a steel reel, has been pulled through the span by means of a cable pulled by a winch. During unreeling process, support trolleys have been installed on the cableway and connected to the main cable to reduce the total pulling force that was constantly monitored. That allowed us to control every single step of the installation of the main cable and to carry out all activities in complete safety.

After deck installation, wind cables have been uncoiled on the deck and then dropped down with several winches and finally connected to the foundation anchorages. Several tensioning steps have been performed during the entire installation to reach the nominal geometry of the bridge.

Congratulations to our team, which has significantly contributed to its realization, designing, and managing such a complex type of installation, for the first time.
