My Thuan 2, the new cable-stayed bridge over the Mekong river
For this 350 main span bridge, Freyssinet Vietnam has been awarded the supply and installation of the complete stay cable system: including anchorage, wax injection, HDPE, IRD and IHD dampers, formwork tubes and guide tubes.
Now that the two piles are built and that the main contractor has finished preparing the form traveler, our teams can start the installation of the cables. Do you know what is the typical construction cycle for this type of bridge?
- Launch the form traveller
- First tension of the cable
- Pouring of the typical segment (360 tons)
- Post-tensioning of the deck
- Second tensioning of the cable
By keeping the same dynamic rhythm, the bridge should be completed by the end of the year.
#Improvingbydoing To reduce our carbon footprint, we provided eco-design solutions in this project that have saved approximately 8.5 tons of steel material, in comparison with our system proposed on Cao Lanh bridge, built with the same configuration.
