Dragages Hong Kong has chosen Nicolas’ MGD G2 SPE modules for the transport of pre-cast bridge elements for the Hong Kong-Zhubai-Macau bridge project in China.


The Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau bridge project, with an estimated cost of $10.6bn, will connect Hong Kong to Zhubai and Macau — three major cities on the Pearl River Delta.

The on-going development involves the construction of an offshore bridge and tunnel, the Boundary Crossing Facilities Island and link roads.

The combined 22.9km-long bridge and 6.7km-long tunnel are expected to reduce travel times from Hong Kong to Macau and Zhugai from more than three hours to half an hour.

According to Nicolas the MGD G2 SPE modules to be used in the project are in use all around the world under the toughest conditions — including in salty air, dusty environments and poor underground areas.

Jannick Mathieu, Nicolas’ area manager sales at TII Sales, said: “With the second generation of this proven vehicle we provide the specifications the industry needs, no matter if we are talking about the impressive bending moment, a multitude of precise steering modes or the sturdiness and long-term reliability of the Nicolas MHD G2.”
