WireCo's Turboplast Proves a Critical Component in Europe's Largest Lift Bridge


The Jacques Chaban-Delmas Bridge, a new vertical lift bridge crossing the Garonne River, is the largest lift bridge in Europe, boasting a central span of 117 meters long, 2600 tons and rises to a staggering height of 53 meters in order to allow passenger liners and large sailboats to pass underneath. 

Operation of the lift span is achieved via high strength wire ropes passing over sheaves that connect the lift span to the counterweights. A wire rope winch drive operating system with electric motor and flux vector regenerative drives haul in and payout the counterweights, thereby raising and lowering the lift span.

WireCo WorldGroup's wire rope facility in Kirkel-Limbach, Germany produced over 4,600 meters (nearly three miles) of CASAR Turboplast ropes to help complete the project.
