Design and execution of the Sebeș-Turda Motorway, LOT 2: km 17+000 – km 41+250
This project is one of the reference projects for our company, placing RETTER Projectmanagement among the top companies in the field of bridge construction in Romania. In close collaboration with the group of companies SSF-RO from Timișoara and SSF Munich, we are applying for the first time a state-of-the-art technology in the field of road infrastructure that was developed by our company especially for Romania.
Together with SSF-RO and SSF Ingenieure AG Munich, the concept and design part of this new type of beams was developed. The metal deck is provided by PAB Romania and together with the companies Lupp and Bauelemente, the formwork and the actual production of the beams were developed. For the assembly part of the beams, we collaborated with Deme Macarale.
Practically the classic solutions have been replaced by prefabricated beams with rigid external reinforcement VFT-WIB, solutions that have proven to be effective from the perspective of modularity benefits with a simple, easy and fast execution.
The development of the highway system, but also other roads in Romania, gave us the chance to add value to this sector through the innovative technology of the first prefabricated beams in a composite solution – metal beams embedded in concrete using the VFT – WIB solution in Romania, continued by the series of prefabricated concrete beams type BFT and metal beams type VTR® (German: VerbundTrägerRost – beam network) which ensure a high standard of quality and resistance of the bridges on the Sebeș-Turda LOT 2 Highway.
