Northern Strands HP 32 Under Bridge Access Platform Successfully Completes Challenging Bridge Inspection

So, you have to complete a structural inspection of the piers and pile caps of a bridge over a live and busy train track….how do you complete this safely?
You use the HP-32 Hydra Platform, that’s how.

With the challenge of not being able to erect scaffolding from below a bridge, not being able to park a man-lift of any kind on the tracks, and the time constraints of only 1 day to complete your inspection, your options are limited. Fortunately, our HP-32 Hydra Platform completed this task successfully, requiring only 1 traffic lane of closure on the TransCanada Highway.  Being a self-contained unit with very short deployment time of less than 10 minutes, we were able to work around the trains schedules, sometimes given only 30 minutes between trains.  And yet we were still able to get the inspection contractor down underneath the bridge to perform a variety of tasks, and back topside safely without impacting the trains schedule.

Have a similar challenge, or any bridge that requires maintenance or inspection?  Interested in learning more about how Northern Strands under bridge access equipment can make your bridge inspections and repairs easier and more cost effective?
