Last Saturday, Wagenborg successfully unloaded and installed the Bøkfjord bridge in Kirkenes (Norway). Earlier the bridge, weighing 760 tonnes and measuring 120 meters in length, was loaded onto Wagenborg Barge 8 by 48 axle-lines SPMTs. After a 1,520 miles journey by tug the bridge arrived safely at Kirkenes.

In the port of Kirkenes, the pontoon is moored in the fjord and the bridge is jacked at the right height. Hereafter, the bridge is turned 90 degrees and positioned onto foundation. A spectacular job!
