Late September, 2016, Wagenborg positioned the Remlingrader bridge in Wuppertal, Germany. Many people witnessed this event. To position the bridge, weighing almost 50 tonnes, Wagenborg deployed a 500 ton mobile crane.

One of the challenges during this project was the site access for the 500 ton mobile crane since access was rather tight. Secondly, the quay needed to be reinforced using supports at two points  making it strong enough to carry the weight of the crane and the bridge.

As soon as all preparations were made and the stability of the surface was checked, it was time to position the crane and to start the lifting operation. After 6 PM, the bridge was successfully positioned onto foundation.
