EGL Oversee Steel Beams Shipment to the River Nile

EGL Oversee Steel Beams Shipment to the River Nile

On 27th February 2019, Egyptian Global Logistics (EGL), subsidiary of KADMAR GROUP, completed transportation of steel beams for El-Wasta bridge over the Nile river using Goldhofer 12 axle lines turntable.

The transportation wasn’t easy due to several challenges followed:

  • The weight of the beams was not balanced in width, with the left side weighting 58 tons, and the right side, 35 tons, and with cross girders of 4.50 m between them.
  • In the assembly area, loading was performed using 2 cranes with a lifting capacity of 300 tons each, which required performing critical maneuvers for loading by using a 6 by 6 turntable.
  • To reach the installation position on the bridge, one of the cranes with a load capacity of 650 tons was used.

EGL project team achieved this success through careful planning and continued to impress the market with the well-trained staff along with the use of latest fleet equipment and technology in Egypt.
