Bridge Bearings Sweden
The purpose for this project was to do a test for Trafikvärket (The Swedish Road Authorities) to
show them the performance of ZINGA for rehabilitation of different complicated structures.
In this case 4 bridge bearings of the Kungsbron (Kings Bridge) in Fagersta, a municipality in the
North of the STORA ASPEN Lake.
Upper Zakum is the 4th largest oilfield in the world. It is owned by ADNOC Offshore (60%) which acts as the operator, ExxonMobil (28%) and the Japan Oil Development Company (Jodco-12%).
A bridge bearing is a component of a bridge which typically provides a resting surface
between bridge piers and the bridge deck. The purpose of a bearing is to allow controlled
movement and thereby reduce the stresses involved.
The work was carried out by Plast & Målningsteknik AB in November 2016 with the technical
assistance of Mr. Björn STAM of ProChroma AB.
