Canakkale 1915 Bridge
Canakkale 1915 Bridge is the longest mid-span suspension bridge in the world. The bridge is located between Gallipoli in Europe and Lapseki in Asia.
The planned total length of the bridge is 3563 meters and with the viaducts, length reaches 4608 meters. Span distance of the 1915 Canakkale Bridge is 2023 meters. The total height of the towers is 318meters. The Bridge is the center-piece segment of the 324-km-long Kınalı-Tekirdağ-Çanakkale-Savaştepe Motorway Project.
Some symbolic figures are related to the bridge. The name “1915” and therefore the groundbreaking date “March 18” are associated with the Turkish Naval Victory on March 18, 1915, during the naval operations within the Gallipoli Campaign. The length of the bridge’s main span with “2,023” meters refers to the centennial of the Turkish Republic in 2023.
Flattop Deck Cargo Barge Sema-1 was hired by Unitek Insaat, which is a subcontractor of bridge contractor consortium DLSY (Daelim – Limak – SK E&C – Yapi Merkezi), for piling works of towers foundations. 600 tons capacity crawler crane was embarked on Deck Barge Sema-1 and the project was completed successfully.
