During the construction of infrastructure projects Mostotrest uses sophisticated proprietary technologies, in line with best international practice.
Mostotrest aims to be at the forefront of technological developments in its industry and has an in-house R&D facility.
Key technologies utilised in Mostotrest’s construction operations include:
- technologies used for modern bridge construction, including the construction of bridge bearings, concrete in-situ pre-stressed bridge structures, reinforced concrete bridge structures, and steel and steel concrete steel bridge structures,
- construction technologies for constructing bridge foundations, including deep laying using driven or drilled pylons and water retaianing walls;
- construction technologies for quay structures and shore protection; and construction technologies for bridges with high pylons and large spans.
Mostotrest has developed several proprietary technologies. As at 30 June 2010 the Company had more than 60 patents registered in Russia, relating to the longitudinal launching of reinforced concrete span structures, joined steel reinforced concrete span structure of bridges, manually assembled inventory scaffolding and bridge support blocks among others. These technologies aim to increase labour productivity, reduce the consumption of materials and associated costs and also to reduce Mostotrest’s dependence on non-Russian suppliers.
Excavation of foundations under the protection of steel sheet pile walls, including those laid directly in river stream
Bored piles are used in deep foundations with significant loads on piers
The technology used assures accuracy during lifting of structures and subsequent installation
Floating systems are used widely in the installation of large bridges
Mostotrest constructs both precast and combined precast/cast in-situ structures
Used in the construction of bridge structures across rivers or at the conjected conditions of site
Construction technologies: concreting on site using continuous scaffolding; concreting section by section on permanent false work with subsequent launching of a completed section of the section‐by‐section balanced concreting using movable scaffolding
