In the night of 27th to 28th of December 2016, in the dark days of December, Wagenborg positioned a steel bridge in Naumburg (Germany). The bridge, fully prefabricated next to the railway, was transported and positioned onto the abutments by 48 axle-lines in combination with a Demag SL3800 crawler crane.

At midnight, the electrical circuit was put out in order to commence with the operation. Since there was only a small window of opportunity, the next train would pass at 5 AM early morning so this job was rather challenging. In order to position the bridge at the right height, Wagenborg placed the bridge onto high supports on the SPMT’s. Thanks to perfect communication between the crane operator and SPMT operators, this giant was positioned onto the abutments, as planned and in time.
