June 2018 – Nights are getting shorter as we close in on Midsummer-night, the ‘longest day of the year’. And that is a shame for our beautiful Netptunigatan bridge, which’s beauty is fully displayed in the darkness of the night, when she gracefully lights up the streets of Malmö (Sweden). Thankfully we made some pictures in our factory after dark, so you can see her in full glory.
With her white deck and LED-railings she is the ultimate proof of the design-potentials of FiberCore’s prefab FRP bridges. Because of her light weight she could easily be rested on Malmö’s historic quay walls and installed within minutes with just a light crane.
Because of Malmö’s marine environment the choice for FRP was an easy one, since the material is not susceptible to salts and hardly any maintenance is required. A sustainable solution!
