Nordec’s steel structures for Kruunuvuorensilta – biggest bridge ever built in Finland

Nordec has signed a contract with TYL Kruunusillat for the impressive Kruunuvuorensilta bridge. Nordec will fabricate and install all the steel structures for the bridge to be located in Helsinki, Finland. The Kruunuvuorensilta bridge will be the highest and longest bridge ever to be built in Finland.

Kruunuvuorensilta requires massive steel structures

Kruunuvuorensilta bridge will be the highest and longest bridge ever built in Finland. The bridge will be 1 200 meters long and the pylon of the bridge rises to 135 meters in height. The bridge will have two tram tracks and lanes for bicycle and pedestrian traffic. The massive bridge will require in total about 6 300 tonnes of steel structures.

Main contractor of the Kruunuvuorensilta bridge project is a joint venture TYL Kruunusillat which consists of YIT Suomi Oy and Kreate Oy. City of Helsinki is the investor of the project.

Nordec responsible for fabrication and installation

All the steel structures will be fabricated in Nordec’s factory in Ylivieska, Finland. The fabrication will begin in March 2022 and take about one and a half years. The installation will start in the beginning of July 2022 from the Laajasalo side of the bridge. The installation of the steel structures is expected to be finalized by the end of 2023.

The Kruunuvuorensilta project is driven not only by high technical requirements, but also by environmental values, which have played a significant role already in the planning stages. The environmental statements conducted, also strongly guide the implementation of the bridge and affect work scheduling, among other things.

“This extensive bridge project is a result of long and intensive development work. We have had the opportunity to be actively involved in this project already in the very beginning, thanks to our customer’s professional project team. We are delighted to be part of this extensive project and participate in developing Helsinki in a responsible way. We appreciate TYL Kruunusillat for trusting our expertise in this demanding project, and we are looking forward to starting cooperation with them and all the other stakeholders,” states Pasi Parkkinen from Nordec with delight.
