Casting Ha’Etzel Bridge
The Shapir Group undertook the largest and most intricate casting operation in Israel, showcasing its expertise in a collaborative effort involving 7 plants, 10 concrete pumps, and 112 mixer trucks.
With Terre-Armee Ltd at the helm as the primary contractor, this groundbreaking project entails pioneering the construction of a mid-air monolithic casting on a support tower system—deviating from the traditional ground-based casting methods.
The venture’s uniqueness stems from its monumental scale, engineering intricacy, specific concrete requirements, and the innovative mid-air construction technique, marking an unprecedented endeavor in Israel.
The substantial quantity of concrete involved is an impressive 5,500 cubic meters, sourced from key plant facilities in Beit Yehoshua, Rishon LeZion, Hatzav, Ramla, and Be’erot Yitzhak.
