3000 km form Spain, 19.03.2011

      Students from the Polytechnic University of Madrid realized their first practice abroad at the construction of Danube Bridge Vidin-Calafat. The young candidate-engineers with the specialty “Roads, channels and bridges”, which they have been studying for a fifth year, observed with great interest the constructed superstructure of the bridge in the non-navigable channel of the river and the method of prestressing of a bunch of high-strength cables and the fixing of the cables by injecting pressurized grout, work, for which they have to prepare assignments.

        Great interest in them evoked the assembly of the launching girder at PB9 for the big segments in the navigable channel of the Danube river, as well as everything constructed so far – piles, pile caps, piers, pylons in the navigable channel of the river.

       Every year the construction of Danube Bridge Vidin-Calafat is visited by students of various civil engineering specialties.
