NAUTITEC takes over construction supervision of the Weener Bridge


published on 25 October 2021 43 -

New challenges ahead for our partner NAUTITEC:

Today, Nautitec took residence of their new offices at the construction site of the “Friesenbrücke” in Weener, the railway bridge which is connecting Weener to the Netherlands.

After being a partner in the planning- and construction team of one of the world´s biggest railway swing bridges, Nautitec will now be handling and supervising the nautical aspects of the rebuilding- and new construction of the bridge in close cooperation with DBNetz AG and other partners within the coming five years.
A freighter had crashed into Germany's longest railway bascule bridge on the Ems near Weener on 3 December 2015. Since then, the railway line from Leer to Groningen in the Netherlands has been interrupted.

By 2024, the bridge is to be replaced by a modern revolving version. The construction of the new bridge had been the subject of prolonged wrangling. In addition to the railway line, the bridge will also have a two-and-a-half-metre wide foot and cycle path.
