Road and rail bridges
ROAD AND RAIL BRIDGES
A bridge, called also "a younger brother of the road", represents a feature that helps overcome various obstacles. People has been naturally attracted to things which connect people, not separate them, and things which make life easier, not more difficult. Bridges and footbridges fulfil this idea. In the area of road and rail bridges, footbridges and pipe bridges, we focus especially on certified production complying with the requirements of the RMD (Road and Motorway Directorate of the Czech Republic), the SŽDC (Railway Infrastructure Administration), and, among others, also Deutsche Bahn AG, and on special delivery and assembly of difficult and atypical bridge structures.
Production takes place in premises with a total area of 49,449 m2. The maximum size of one piece amounts to 7 x 5 x 40 m with a weight of 100,000 kg. Nowadays, the annual capacity of steel structure production is 36,000 t/year.

CHRÁSTECKÁ – PLASKÁ Road Bridge
Description: Vítkovice Power Engineering signed a contract for the delivery and installation of a steel structure of a bridge across the Berounka river in Pilsen. The bridge is on road II/231, which is important for transport. The bridge provided relief to all drivers that had encountered the difficulties of the temporary road. SÚSPK (the organisation for management and maintenance of roads in the Pilsen Region) is the investor, but the direct partner of the VÍTKOVICE group is SMP CZ, a.s. that has long-term experience in road construction and bridge technology development. The new road bridge should weigh about 541.5 tons.

ŠEŠUPE ROAD BRIDGE
Description: Two bridges, each is 45 tons in weight and 10 metres in length. The end customer – a Norwegian railway company – set strict production standards especially on basic and welding materials. The tests were conducted in a temperature of minus 50°C. Surface protection is composed of a hot zinc sprayed layer as a base and three-layer coating. These bridges will be installed in Oslo on the regional railway line. The delivery is a result of long-term cooperation with a Lithuanian company UAB ViaCon from Kaunas, for which we earlier produced road bridges across the Nemunas river – 660 tons, Druskininkai – 414 tons and the Šešupe rail bridge – 140 tons.
Road Bridge across Nottekanal
Description: In October 2011, 4 trapezoidal steel girders being 38 m in length and each weighing 31 tons (124 tons in total) left VÍTKOVICE POWER ENGINEERING. These girders were used for the construction of a bridge across Nottekanal on the ring road around Königs Wusterhausen in Germany.

BAŠKA Road Bridge
Description: On 23rd August 2011 in 10:30, a bridge across the Ostravice river in Baška was opened. It was opened to public on Thursday 25th August at 14:00. The construction was needed due to bad condition of the bridge built in 1961. The pillar in the riverbed was seriously damaged and it tilted. 80% of the bridge was influenced by this deformation and thus the bridge was unusable. The entire construction was conducted by OHL ŽS, a.s. in 14 months and the opening was sped up by 100 days. VÍTKOVICE POWER ENGINEERING a.s. played a significant part in it. It was selected to produce and supply the new steel structure, including assembly our company was able to provide due to rich experience in the area of engineering that it gained during previous similar projects and that it plans to further develop. The process of structure production was carried out according to the production documentation created by our construction department. During creating the documentation, checking and coordination meetings were held with the representatives of all stakeholders that participated in the project. The production is classified to production group Aa according to Czech standards for bridge structures, adhering to rules of TKP 19 (Technical quality conditions). After producing a part of the load-bearing steel structure, a partial acceptance occurred, during which the geometry of the steels structures, welds and documentation on materials used were inspected. After applying anti-corrosion protection, the girders were transported to the site together with assembly stiffening. The total weight of the bridge structure is 280,489.13 kg and stiffening 31,081.43 kg. The bridge consists of two spans supported by one pillar. The individual spans are 51 m and 40 m in length.
