Maiden voyage for barge Louis
Sarens' new barge Louis has left the harbour of San Giorgio di Nogaro (Italy) to execute its first project. Two bridge sections of Pont Bacalan-Bastide were loaded onto the barge and shipped to Bordeaux, France. Barge Louis will ship in total 5 bridge sections to Bordeaux, where Sarens is also responsible for the load-out and installation of the components. The heaviest bridge section has a weight of 2.500 t. The French bridge over de Garonne River is expected to be finished by the summer of 2012.
