Normek supplies the Saimaa Canal with the new steel railway bridge.

The total weight of the Saimaa Canal bridge is about 1100 tonnes and one bridge section weighs between 65 and 100 tonnes. The bridge is delivered to the site on a total of 13 blocks.

Production at our Oulu plant will start in December 2018 and installation work on site will begin in August 2019. The bridge will be completed in summer 2021.

The new railway bridge will be built south of the current track bridge and will be over 200 meters long.
