14th Fachtag Brückenbau
Lectures and site visit in Duisburg
The 14th Fachtag Brückenbau (Bridge Construction Symposium) took place yesterday in brilliant sunshine and a temperature of almost 30 degrees. Subject to COVID hygiene restrictions some 200 participants were able to listen on site to enthralling lectures and interesting discussions: "The lecture programme illustrates the possibilities for steel bridge construction. Modern designs and advances in materials guarantee elegance and sustainability," stated Dr Dieter Reitz, the chairman of the Fachgemeinschaft Brückenbau.
The highlight was the final site visit to the Duisburg Neuenkamp bridge over the Rhine River at the invitation of MCE GmbH and DEGES GmbH. An extremely interesting project, in which GRASSL engineers were involved in providing the execution design for the firms working on the project.
"An altogether successful day with a varied programme, ending with another opportunity to exchange views" was the opinion of Jacqueline Donner, a GRASSL team leader, who attended the symposium.
As one of the sponsors of the event and also a member of the Fachgemeinschaft Brückenbau we are delighted that this event was such a success!
