Dextra’s Quarterly Newsletter: Connection #16

Bridge the Panama Canal with Dextra solutions

Also called the Third Bridge Over the Panama Canal, the 2.8-kilometer Atlantic Bridge is one of the world’s longest cable-stayed concrete bridge.

Crossing one of the world’s most crucial shipping routes, the Atlantic Bridge is located near the city of Colón. It is designed not only to let vehicles cross the canal even when the locks are in operation, but also to allow the passage of large container ships, Post-Panamax, with its 75-meter vertical clearance above sea level.

For this iconic project, more than 350,000 Dextra standard Bartec couplers were used for the bridge’s reinforced pile cages, pile caps and pylons by the contractor VINCI Grand Projets. The full-performance Bartec couplers substitute the overlap on rebars of up to #14 (equivalent 43 mm) on grade 80 steel.

Dextra also provided 3 sets of Bartec equipment for on-site bar-end preparation. Machine setup, operator training and maintenance services were done by our local After Sales Service team to guarantee maximum productivity. Moreover, to avoid steel congestion in the bridge’s pile caps, more than 50,000 Headed Bars end anchors were also used.

The Atlantic Bridge is planned to open in early 2019.
