Rebuilding of the bridge over the River Biala in Jankowa-Lipniczka, which was destroyed by flood in 2010.

Split into six bridge sections, material with a total weight of 116 t was installed 5 m above the river. The sections were delivered by low-loader from Skoczów, Silesia, pre-assembled on site, and then positioned through a tandem lift. Our customer IMB-Podbeskidzie completed the work in December 2017.

Three Liebherr machines were in operation:

  • An LR 1300 crawler crane and a mobile crane type LTM 1160-5.1 were at hand for the lifting work,
  • and the sheet piles were installed by a duty cycle crawler crane type HS 855 HD equipped with a vibratory hammer.
  • The bridge sections were lifted into position in tandem lift. The exact positioning of the individual sections was supported through the smooth control of the cranes.
