San Giorgio Bridge project (Genoa)
CENTRALTUBI S.p.A. was the company of SG (System Group) who manufactured and delivered the SGK HDPE large diameter spiraled pipes with for the construction works of the new San Giorgio Bridge in Genoa (Italy). This bridge became famous as it was the newly reconstructed after the collapse of the previously “Morandi Bridge”.
In this case, the pipes, DN/ID of 2000 mm and 2500 mm, have been requested by the construction company with the clear objective to guarantee to some improvements like faster execution time and workers’ safety on the site. These factors were extremely important for the project in itself and they have been highly. Furthermore, in addition to the pipes, there was the need to respect some special technical requirements related to the fittings: the pipes had to be installed very close to some pylons of the bridge and fittings needed to stand this tightness.
In this case, as the trait had to be trusted and extended throughout the lifetime of the new infrastructure, the solution provided was the electrofusion coupler joint system, which encountered appreciation and approval. To safeguard all these technical requirements SG technical department developed “made-to-measure” solutions that satisfied and improved the cost-benefit ratio. All in all, SG team provided an all-round service: from design to installation with their own dedicated welders.
