2008 Papenburg, Meyer Werft
There has been a Meyer Werft shipyard on the Ems in Papenburg since 1795. Dry Dock II is currently the largest dry dock construction facility in the world. The Quantum of the Seas, at 167,800 gross tonnage and with rooms for 4180 guests, was built here in 2014.
This impressive maritime structure with long-spanning decks relies on bi-Trapez Bearings from Calenberg. The bearings ensure loads are centralised as the designer intended when transferred to the adjoining components, and accommodate any unevenness and deck deflections.
Shear deformations and relative movements of up to 4 mm, which can occur as concrete cures or due to wind loads, are accommodated by the 10 mm thick bi-Trapez Bearings.
