Kömürhan Bridge

Malatya-Elazig, Turkey

The Kömürhan Bridge is under construction some 700 kilo-metres east of the Turkish capital Ankara and 400 kilometres north of the Syrian border. It is 660 metres long and consists of a cable-stayed bridge with a single pylon with a height of 165 metres.

Challenge:
The pylon, and especially its unusual form, represent-ed the main challenge in the search for a practical formwork solution.

Solution:
Automatic climbing formwork SKE50 was used for the upper single-core pillar of the pylon, while for the lower half a specially adapted double set with customised solutions at the intersections was used to guarantee top quality and safety.
