Inauguration of the Niedersachsenbrücke

WILHELMSHAVEN. Following a 5-year renovation of the bridge, NPorts completed the works on the Niedersachsenbrücke in Wilhelmshaven on schedule. During this period, renovations included giving 680 foundation piles a new protective coating – which roughly corresponds to a surface area of eight football pitches. In addition, concrete was renewed in many of the structural components. Following the anticorrosive coating, the bridge, which has been an integral feature of the port since 1972, is now protected against environmental influences which, in turn, will assist in lengthening its service life.
