Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah Causeway Project – Main Link, Kuwait, 2014~2016
The Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah Causeway Project in Kuwait includes a 36 km long dual highway bridge crossing the Bay of Kuwait, connecting Kuwait City to Subiya, the location for the proposed “Silk City” development.
The bridge is constructed using the Full Span method, with standard pre-cast bridge segments of 60m length for the main and north bridges, and 30-40m long segments for the south bridge and interchange area. The 60m long span segments weigh over 1700 Tons, the largest bridge segments ever constructed using this method. Previously the largest were 1400 Ton segments on Incheon Bridge in Korea and Hangzhou Bay in China.
SDI is proud to have been selected by HYUNDAI E&C to supply the 1800 Ton capacity FSLM Equipment for this prestigious and record breaking project.
This FSLM equipment will complete lifting, transportation and erection of almost 1000 pre-cast box girders for this project.
SDI also supplied Hyundai E&C with other equipment on the Project, including an 1100Ton capacity Overhead Crane used for unloading bridge segments for the south bridge and interchange, and 16 No Gantry Cranes for the pre-casting yard with capacities ranging from 10 to 110 Tons.
SDI was later awarded a separate contract for the FSLM Equipment operation and bridge deck erection of the project in earlier 2016.
