1986 Istanbul, Fatih-Sultan-Mehmet-Bridge

In 1986 Calenberg Ingenieure accomplished a further pioneering achievement. The longest suspension bridge of Europe was built with the incremental launching technique. Here the complete bridge superstructure was constructed in sections in a concreting facility behind the abutment.

Calenberg Ingenieure designs, manufactures and markets elastomeric sliding bearings, and statically or dynamically loaded structural bearings (elastomeric bearings) for buildings and structures, sub-ballast mats and trackbed mats for track construction as well as other elastomer-based products for noise insulation and environmental protection.

After completion of a bridge section this section was pushed together with the previously constructed sections over the bridge piers on steel-reinforced Calenberg Perforated Sliding Bearings such that the next incremental section could be built. The sliding bearings had to perform a total of 1,500 m translational movement.
