Caissons for the 1915 Çanakkale Bridge: Exactly in the right place

The new suspension bridge over the Çanakkale Strait (Dardanelles), a strait in north-western Türkiye, is an important part of the highway that will connect the cities of Çanakkale and Malkara (near the Greek border). The Turkish companies Limak and Yapi Merkezi, with SK E&C and Daelim from South Korea, are the Joint Venture responsible for it. The DSLY JV in turn commissioned specialists Strukton Immersion Projects to float out, transport and install the foundation structure: two gigantic caissons measuring 74m by 83m and 45m high. The installation of the caissons was successfully completed in May 2019.

The magazine E-mosty published an article about the work carried out by Strukton Immersion Projects. The complete five-page article can be found here.
