Four lanes of a motorway and two rail lines run over the bridge. The shipping traffic at the port of Rotterdam has to operate smoothly around the clock, making availability requirements unique.
These figures reflect the unique technical requirements placed on the drive system of the lifting bridge. The bridge is equipped with eight Eisenbeiss i:GEAR 4.0 lifting gears, featuring the GearControl system which monitors oil level, temperature, vibrations and speeds.
The availability of the gears and thus the bridge are optimised considerably thanks to appropriate diagnosis and recommended action.
