Lifting engineering for the rotation and erection of plate-like modules with very irregular geometries for a landmark foot-bridge part of the large-scale renovation project of the Greenwich Peninsula Region.
London - UK
The tide footbridge in London, United Kingdom, is a landmark project part of the large-scale renovation of the Greenwich Peninsula Region. It is composed of various platted modules with curved geometry and oblique columns. These modules, each different from one another, weight around 20Tons each.
Emasa Engineering was responsible for the erection engineering analyses necessary for the handling of the modules from the fabrication shop to the installation in its final position. The works included the design of the transportation (maritime and road) saddles for the modules laying down, checks for the stability of the modules during the verticalization using two cranes and the design of the lifting arrangement and lifting lugs.
The great, unique complexity of the project gave birth to a scientific paper, which was presented in the Pacific Structural Steel Conference 2019.
