ALPINE is erecting a bridge pylon in Northern Norway

2. October 2012

DOKA is supplying a high-performing formwork solution

In the far north of Norway in Alta, the Salzburg, Austria, based construction group ALPINE is building a 270 m long and 8.5 m wide single-tower cable-stayed bridge across the Kåfjord. Doka is supplying a dependable, high-performing formwork solution for building the A-shaped pylon and its foundations, together with the foreland bridge.

To help it ‘rise’ to the challenging conditions applying to the building of the 72.5 m high pylon, ALPINE opted for the self-climbing DOKA formwork system SKE50 plus. To make it unnecessary to deliver any extra formwork equipment for the six circular pillars of the foreland bridge, it was decided to re-use the Framax framed formwork that was already on-site following completion of the abutments. The completion of this project is scheduled for spring 2013.
