Kusso River Bridge

The bridge over the Kusso River is located in Bailundo, Huambo province, Angola.

This bridge was designed, built and assembled by VESAM Eng. S.A. in 2014.

It consists of 3 stringers of S355 steel, with a 38 meters span with variable sections and bolted connections.

The bridge pavement consists of a mixed reinforced concrete slab with a corrugated steel plate.

This bridge was monitored in 2015, serving as a pilot site for testing solutions initially developed by VESAM’s R&D Department, in remote scenarios, with satellite communications and power supply using a high capacity photovoltaic panel.

Twenty-one sensors were installed, including strain gauges, accelerometers, inductive loops, thermometer, hygrometer, corrosion sensor and a weather station.

The system included a data logger capable of storing data, sending it to our servers periodically in order to reduce the energy consumption of the telecommunications system.
