World record for the length of prestressed concrete beams in Harbour bridge Ooijen-Wanssum (NL) - (June 11, 2020)

On the 11th and 12th june the world’s longest prestressed prefabricated beams will be installed in for the new bridge over the port of Wanssum. Such an unprecedented length was needed to construct a bridge without intermediate pillars along the canal. With a length of 69 metres, these are the longest pre-stressed beams ever manufactured. The 8 beams were produced by Haitsma Beton and transported to the site by boat. Hoisting and assembly will be executed by means of two floating docks. Follow this impressive operation via the following link:
