Comansa Helps Join Together 2 Islands in the Philippines


Comansa 21LC660 tower cranes were used on the construction of the Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway cable-stayed bridge which will join Cebu City and Mactan Island in the Philippines, a location repleted with logistical challenges.

Thanks to this new bridge, the journey time is reduced by up to 40 minutes. This helps streamline commercial and industrial travel and facilitate the transportation of tourists landing at the international airport of Mactan, which is the main touristic hub of the country.

This was a key project for the region, awarded by CCLEC (Cebu Cordova Link Expressway Corporation), a subsidiary of MPTC (Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation), to Cebu Link Joint Venture (CLJV), a joint venture composed of Spanish company Acciona Construccion S. A. and Filipino companies First Balfour, and D. M. Consunji Inc.

In order to meet the specific requirements of the project, 2 Comansa 21LC660 flat-top cranes from the 2100 series were selected. The use of 80-m long booms has made possible to provide a wide and accessible perimeter on-site surrounding the 2 main pylons on which the bridge was built.

The project was divided into 3 sections: the Cordova viaduct and causeway, the cable-stayed bridge being this the main bridge of the project, and the access viaducts on Cebu City side. Comansa’s tower cranes have been used to construct the main cable stayed bridge which span approximately 650 m and is supported by 2 towers of 150 m height each.
Given the bridge's location in a country that is affected by typhoons during the rainy season, the tower cranes were designed to support winds of up to 250 km/h. In addition, due to their height and the proximity to Mactan-Cebu Airport, both the cranes and the booms were fitted with safety lights in compliance with civil aviation regulations.
