        Stay Cable Installation

The cables for a new cable stayed bridge in the UK have recently been installed.

TENSOLOGY technicians worked around the clock to install and tension the Locked Coil cable assemblies for a major bridge project in the UK.  The 60mm and 68mm diameter Locked Coil cable assemblies had been manufactured to exact tolerances by Redaelli in Italy and were delivered to site complete with fork sockets for the tower connection and a combination of adjustable fork sockets and cylindrical sockets for the ground and deck connection.

A total of 16 cable assemblies were uncoiled, lifted, attached and tensioned to predetermined forces.  Final tension checks were carried out on all 16 stays prior to completion of the works.
