It is a project that connects Bulgaria and Romania

HIMOINSA generator sets form part of the machinery used to build this new structure connecting Bulgaria and Romania. The project has entailed substantial investment in the technologically innovative solutions required to overcome such natural hurdles as the enormous volume of water carried by the Danube as it flows through the different cities where this infrastructure has been developed.

HIMOINSA has supplied no less than 15 generator sets through its distributor, All Generating, capable of supplying more than 8 MW of power for the construction of a major section of the Pan-European Corridor IV, which runs from Dresden (Germany) to Istanbul (Turkey), providing four lanes, a single railway track, a cycle lane and two pedestrian footpaths. 

The construction work, which took 6 years, has been carried out by the Spanish company FCC. This project has made it possible to build what is undoubtedly the largest bridge ever erected over the Danube. The bridge, which spans the river as it passes by the towns of Vidin and Calafat, connects Bulgaria and Romania and represents an important step forward in the communications between the two countries. With a total distance of 2 km, this infrastructure is considered a key component for the development of transport in the area.

HIMOINSA generator sets have supplied continuous power both for the extraction pumps used to lay the bridge's pillars and anchorages and for the welding machinery used to secure all the metal parts of the bridge's framework. 

With a budget of 225 million euros, this new infrastructure is a communication artery that will channel freight and passenger traffic between southern Europe (Greece, Macedonia and Turkey) and northern Europe (Germany, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary).

HIMOINSA generator sets form part of the machinery used to build this new structure connecting Bulgaria and Romania. The project has entailed substantial investment in the technologically innovative and indeed cutting-edge solutions required to overcome such natural hurdles as the enormous volume of water carried by the Danube as it flows through the two cities.
