03.08.2022: New bridge contract for NLI Engineering

NLI Engineering has signed a contract with AF Anlegg for fabrication and installation of steelwork for the Bryn bridge at Hellerud, included in the ongoing upgrade of Østensjøbanen.

Main contractor AF Anlegg is upgrading the metro line between Brynseng station and Hellerud station on Østensjøbanen in Oslo for Sporveien AS.

The bridge is a joint bridge with an estimated total weight of 125 tons, length 65 meters, and width 5.3 meters.

In connection with the installation of the new Bryn bridge for Østensjøbanen, critical work such as lifting of load-bearing steel structures must be carried out during line disconnection (period without traffic) on the railway.
After hoisting sections, it must be mounted and torque-drawn approx. 1,500 bolts in splicing joints and cross bracing.
Lifting of 2 sections will take place during the period 10-12 February 2023.

– Bryn bridge joins the series of steel bridges produced and installed by NLI, with traditions back to the 1920s. The project fits in well with NLI’s core business, and as well important in terms of internal development and retention of competence within the infrastructure segment.

We are very pleased to have won this contract, and look forward to a good collaboration with AF Anlegg in this project, says Tommy Hansen.

Bent Kjær Jacobsen is NLI’s Project Manager.
