The first part of the shipment saw 5 girders of 7 meter wide and 95mt being trucked to Mannheim barge terminal, loaded to barge, shipped to Rotterdam. The second part of the shipment saw 4 stanchions of 5.1 meter high and 72mt that could not be trucked to Mannheim, but only to Gernsheim and even then a ‘flyover bridge reinforcement’ (to put a steel bridge atop the actual bridge to strengthen it) had to be used to allow the heavy load to cross that bridge. Then all the cargo was shipped from Rotterdam to Thessaloniki and from there by truck to site.
