MEKA AND ILGAZ CONSTRUCTION PARTNERS IN CHALLENGING PROJECTS

The Northern Marmara Expressway Project (Odayeri – Pasakoy Section), the construction of which is going on within the scope of the 3rd Bosphorus Bridge project, is one of the most important projects of our country. Within the scope of the project, Ilgaz Construction is performing the production, transportation and assembly of the pre-stressed prefabricated concrete girders used in all viaducts, bridges, underpasses and overpasses located on the European Side.

Within the scope of the same project, the complete constructions of the V6-V14-V17-V22-V23-V24 viaducts, 3 of which are on the Anatolian Side and 3 on the European Side, are also being performed by the Ilgaz-Freysas partnership. The relevant viaducts with total length of 7 km will be built by the incremental launching method, which will be used for the first time in Turkey.

TEM Edirne-Karaagac Connection Road Project

The foundations of the TEM Edirne-Karaagac Connection Road Project were first poured on July 14, 2013. It will connect the Pazarkule Border Gate, which is planned to be the 2nd passage point between Turkey and Greece, to the Edirne Beltway by a high standard road.

Within the scope of the project Meric Bridge, which is 2.100 meters long and has 57 spans, Tunca River Duplexing Bridge with the length of 220 meters, 8 other bridges (7 underpasses and 1 overpass) of different lengths and the Gazimihal, Yildirim and Fuar Intersections will be built.

Edirne project has 1650 bridge girders, 32,000 tons of steel and 225.000 m³ of concrete. The TEM Edirne-Karaağaç Connection Road will use 42,000 meters of bored piles in C45-C55 concrete classes, will pass over the Meriç and Tunca Rivers and connect to the Pazarkule Border Gate.

Ilgaz Construction was founded in Adana/Turkey and has started its activities in 1994. Today it is a leading enterprise specialized in production and transportation of pre-stressed/non-stressed girders, used in bridges and viaducts, their installation by launching girder, complete bridge and viaduct constructions and all types of prefabricated concrete production. The project, that is conducted by Ilgaz Construction within the scope of the 3rd Bridge and Connection Roads, is planned to be completed and taken into service in October 2015, while the Edirne Project is planned to be completed at the end of 2014.

Within the scope of these projects, 3 concrete plants were delivered by the solution partner MEKA, 2 of which will be used on Istanbul and 1 on Edirne construction sites. MB-120W Stationary Concrete Plant, which is located at the Istanbul Uskumrukoy premises, is manufacturing high quality concrete classes, like C35, C45 and C55 for the girders. At the Uskumrukoy premises 8 pieces of 1180 pre-stressed girders will be produced with total volume of 250,000 m³ of precast concrete. MB-120W Stationary Concrete Plant, which is located at the İstanbul Gokturk-Fenertepe premises, is manufacturing high quality concrete classes, like C35 and C45 for the girders. At the Göktürk- Fenertepe premises 5 pieces of 1180 and 4 pieces of 1120 pre-stressed girders will be manufactured and used on the European Side

Meanwhile, the final concrete plant that MEKA has delivered to Ilgaz Construction within the scope of the Edirne project is a C-120 Compact Batch Plant.
