IHI has constructed numerous major bridges worldwide. Included are the Seto Ohashi Bridges and the Akashi Strait Bridge in Japan, the Second Bosporus Bridge and the Golden Horn Bridge in Turkey, the Carquinez Bridge in the United States, and the Binh Bridge and the Nhat Tan Bridge in Vietnam.
At 2,682 meters long and a center span of 1,550 meters, the Osman Gazi Bridge is the fourth longest suspension bridge in the world and has become the longest suspension bridge IHI has built overseas. IHI Group undertook the entire construction of the bridge as the single contractor and completed and opened it for traffic in June 2016.
In March 2000, IHI received an order from an American joint venture company (JV) for over 10,000 metric tons of orthotropic box girders for the New Carquinez Bridge in the suburbs of San Francisco, California. This is the first long-span suspension bridge in U.S.A. in 40 years. IHI fabricated the girder at Aichi Works, and completed the delivery in March 2003. The bridge was opened to traffic in November 2003.
The total length 3,080-meter Nhat Tan Bridge in Hanoi, Vietnam, is a rare 6 span continuous cable-stayed bridge. IHI Group received the order for engineering, procurement and construction on the superstructure . The bridge was completed and opened to traffic in December 2014.
This is a structural form, aiming for reducitonof construction cost, consists of main girders and floor slabs to support roads. The photo shows Isabu Interchange in Shizuoka City that consists of continuous composite plate girder bridges and continuous box girder bridges placed on the connection road between Tomei Expressway and New Tomei Expressway.
IHI produces steel-concrete composite floor system consisting of bottom steel plates, channel steel reinforcements, and stud dowels.
This floor system can flexibly deal with longer spans. Since the bottom steel plate serves as the framework, it excels in terms of safety and construction capability and helps shorten the construction period.
Sound-absorbing Panels for the Traffic Noise under the Elevated Roads and Noise Barriers
Sound-absorbing panels for the underside of elevated roads and noise barriers.
The sound-absorbing panels for the underside of elevated roads were developed to limit the increase of reflection noise from the underside of elevated roads, while the sound isolating boards were developed to reduce noise at construction sites.
Temporary Assembling Bridge
Temporary assembling bridge “TRIAS”
“TRIAS” is the all-purpose temporary assembling bridges that provides excellent solution when swift and cost-effective construction is required. As emergency bridges, they can be easily constructed on any site conditions within a short time and have sufficient capacity for heavy vehicles.
They come in “plate girder” and “truss” types and can be used for various purposes, including disaster recovery, scaffold board for construction and so on.
