To replace the existing Botlek-Bridge, as part of the larger A15 motorway expansion project, a new bridge is built. The new Botlek bridge is one of Europe’s biggest moveable / lifting bridge. Hycom has developed and built the complete hydraulic system consisting of systems for locking the bridge when closed or open and also systems for tensioning of the drive cable and the balance cable.
In total Hycom has supplied over 200 cylinders, 4 large hydraulic power units, 16 small hydraulic power units, 16 accumulator stations and the piping.
Hycom also commissioned the complete system on site.
