Ypsilon Bridge

Project: New bridge

Our delivery: 2007

  • 290 t of steel structures
  • 1690 m steel wire cores

Tight timetable and challenging installation

Ypsilon is a cable stayed pedestrian bridge which crosses the Drammenselvan river in Norway.

Ruukki delivered 290 t of steel structures, 1,680 m steel wire cores and was responsible for prefabrication and installation of the tower and the deck for the bridge. The construction was completed in November 2007. The project was implemented by the Sandnessjøen unit.

Ruukki’s prefabricated elements made the tight timetable and challenging installation of the bridge over the river possible. The close cooperation between construction engineers and the construction site helped to accomplish the special design and complexity of the structures.
