High quality steel structures for bridge construction
At Nordec, we focus on the production and installation of steel structures of composite bridges. Together with our customers, we plan the best fabrication and installation methods for different bridge structures. We want to optimize the bridge structures and guarantee safe and fast installations, so our target is to participate in the bridge construction project in the early stage. We work in close cooperation with construction companies, cities, municipalities, and private road associations.
Most of our bridge structures are fabricated at factory in Ylivieska. Our dedicated installation teams ensure the safe and timely installation of steel bridge structures.
Steel bridge types
We have an impressive number of references of building road and railway bridges and pedestrian bridges. We deliver, fabricate, and install different types of steel bridges.
In bridge projects, we mainly utilize welded girders, I-girders, and box girders. Welded girders are fabricated in our automated welding lines. We complete steel structures ready for installation in our modern factory.
The most common delivered bridge structures are:
- I-girder bridge
- Box girder bridge
- Truss bridge
- Cable-stayed bridge
Optimized bridge structures
Planning of the cost-effective bridge project begins already in the tendering phase together with our customers.
When participating in the bridge construction project in the early phase, we can optimize all the steps of a bridge project, including fabrication, logistics, and installation. Optimizing the whole process and making it as easy as possible for our customers is always our key target. It is how we can ensure the smooth delivery of high-quality bridge structures in a reliable schedule for your project.
We can deliver steel structures for different types and sizes of bridges in a cost-effective way. Therefore, we encourage you to contact us already in the project development phase so that we can plan and optimize your bridge project together.
