Shipment of steel beams for motorway bridge in UK


ALTIUS transports 21x steel beams, measuring up to 35 meters in length and weighing up to 95 tons, which will be used to build a new bridge on the M-8, M-73 and M-74 motorways in Glasgow-Scotland, UK.

On the loading date (12/08/2015), the loading operations took place on board a coastal vessel without its own lifting equipment in the Spanish port of Seville.

All steel beams and other equipment were loaded on board the vessel in just one day.

ALTIUS' own team of engineers devised and came up with the solution to stow and ship all the parts in a single sea voyage thanks to a complex stowage plan, which optimised the available space on the ship.
