German delegation at Danube bridge Vidin-Calafat, 05.07.2011

Representatives of the town of Ulm, Germany, closely examined the structure of the bridge over the Danube at Vidin-Calafat, constructed by the Spanish company FCC Construccion. The delegation, led by the Mayor of Ulm – Ivo Gцner, has the chance to watch the concreting of one of the struts at PB11. in the navigable channel of the river and the transportation of the concrete pumps and mixers by water.

The bridge struts are concreted in situ, as opposed to the segments of the superstructure and the vessel impact protections which are manufactured at the production site of the company and are transported by land or by water to the place for the assembly.

The guests, staying in Vidin, in connection with the several-year cooperation with Vidin Municipality and participation in various joint projects, have expressed particular interest in the cross-border railway facility which will significantly shorten the path between Western and Eastern Europe.
