Scientists were sʜᴏᴄᴋed when they saw Extreme Engineering Machines Building the most amazing megastructures


Segmental Bridge Launching Machine
This equipment is responsible for moving, setting up, and fastening the completed bridge segments to the pre-installed supports. It should be mentioned that while using such a machine still necessitates some ᴍᴀɴual labor, the volume and intensity of that labor are incomparably reduced compared to the ᴍᴇᴛʜods employed a century ago.
The SLJ900/32 bridge girder erection mega-machine has dimensions of 91 meters (300 feet) in length, 7.4 meters (24 feet) in width, 9 meters in height, and 580 tons in weight. During its “life,” it can erect 700-750 bridge spans, each weighing between 800 and 950 tons. However, more than 40% of these machines have been able to erect more than 1000 spans.

Tunnel Boring Machines
A device used to create circular tunnels through a variety of rock and soil layers is a tunnel boring machine, sometimes known as a “mole.” They can be utilized for microtunneling as well. They can be made to bore through anything, including sand and hard rock. Up until this point, tunnel diameters have ranged from one meter to 17.6 meters (58 feet). Instead of TBMs, tunnels with a diameter of less than or equal to one meter are typically constructed using trenchless construction ᴍᴇᴛʜods or horizontal directional drilling.
TBMs can be made to excavate a variety of non-circular tunnel shapes, such as u-shaped, horseshoe-shaped, square, or rectangular tunnels. Drilling and blasting (D&B) ᴍᴇᴛʜOds in rock and traditional “ᴍᴀɴual mining” in dirt are being replaced by tunnel boring machines. TBMs have the advantage of minimizing ground disturbance and creating a smooth tunnel wall.

Tower Cranes
The Tower Crane appears as a vertical metallic structure with a boom that may be rotated up to 360 degrees. The majority of tower cranes are located on building sites. Tower cranes are used on construction sites to raise heavy objects including steel, concrete, acetylene torches, generators, and various other building supplies. Tower cranes are mostly utilized for capacity transportation and lifting. As a general “rule of thumb,” if the wind speed reaches 20 mph, the crane should be stopped. Even before the wind reaches 20 mph, project ᴍᴀɴagers and designated persons should reevaluate lifts if the wind speed increases ᴅᴀɴɢᴇʀᴏᴜsly.

AASTA Hansteen Rig Spar
The project will be built on a Spar and will consist of an integrated deck, living quarters, and flare with a dry weight of 21,500 tons. The first Spar building in Nᴏʀᴡᴀʏ, the first to have condensate storage, and the largest of its sort worldwide is Aasta Hansteen. The procedure comprises traditional gas dehydration and stabilization of dew-pointing process condensate through heating and separation. 25,000 m3 of condensate can be stored there, and the gas will be compressed before being exported to Nyhamna. The field, which is situated at a depth of 1,300 meters of water, has gas and condensate reserves of 40 to 60 GSm3. Due to the region’s especially challenging environmental circumstances, creative design approaches must be used.
