VST is a very flexible system, strong and easy to assemble. It is very suitable for end span falsework in bridge construction.

PERI solution

PERI provided VST towers with heights up to 20m and maximum leg load of 1000 KN to support the segment construction. What's more, PERI performed preassembly work at the stockyard to follow a just-in-time delivery schedule and an on-site supervisor was arranged. Overnight supervision service was offered to ensure a smooth placing of bridge segments.
