JT4 Offshore BridgeÜbersicht
The Jebel Ali Terminal 4, phase 1, is located to the operational Terminal 2, in the vicinity of a LNG import terminal and the shipping fairway to Jebel Ali.
To connect the terminal with the mainland a causeway will be constructed with an approximate total length of 2’240 m. This causeway will be split in two, the northern and southern causeway, by a 440 m long bridge. This is to ensure water circulation through the existing port. The causeways will consist of two rock structures containing reclamation fill with an approximate width of 35 m. The 440 m dual carriageway bridge will be a concrete gravity structure founded on rock foundations. The gravity piers significantly reduce the interface with buried gas line from the LNG facility.
mageba supplied a total of 264 elastomeric bearings that act as elastic connection between the elements of this offshore bridge.
Type B, the laminated bearing, is fully covered with elastomer, comprising only one steel reinforcing plate and can be positioned between the elements without anchoring.
Production according to American Standard AASHTO LRFD Section 14 and in-house testing was performed by mageba’s ISO-certified production facility in Kolkata, India.
