Sany has achieved yet another milestone in Bangladesh by playing a vital role in the completion of Padma Multipurpose Bridge.  Considered to be the most challenging project in the history of Bangladesh, over 120 Sany machines were put to use on this road rail bridge that carries a four-lane highway on the upper level and a single-track railway on the lower level. 

Touted to be the longest bridge over the Padma River in terms of span and total length is expected to boost the GDP of the country by 2 percent to 3 percent. 

Deepak Garg, Vice President, Sany Group and Chairman Sany Bangladesh said, “It’s a matter of great pride for Sany and Powervision Group, our channel partner in Bangladesh, to be a part of such a prestigious project that will link the south-west of the country to northern and eastern regions.”

The Padma Bridge proved to be a tough challenge both in terms of its location and size. The project needed 122 meters piling depth and the high tide added to the challenge of piling.
