HOT DIP GALVANIZED BRIDGE PANELS FOR RECONSTRUCTION IN MOSUL

Steel panel bridges are often used as emergency bridges in crisis and disaster regions, temporary construction bridges and engineers’ bridges. The corrosion protection needs to be durable, high-performance and hard-wearing. Waagner-Biro has relied for decades on its partner – the ZINKPOWER Group. Apart from the European sites, there is also a close partnership beyond the region in Indonesia. 

Mosul’s “Fourth Bridge“
All five crossings over the River Tigris were destroyed in the battle for Mosul (2016/2017). 3 sections of the original 12-bay bridge with a total length of 648 metres and the associated bridge piers were bombed or blown up. The temporary steel bridge spans the destroyed sections. It is designed as a 4-section bridge with an individual span of 43 metres and a total length of 167 metres. The span width on the right-hand riverbank was also slightly inclined to compensate for the 3.6-metre difference in height to the existing link.
