Bøkfjord Bridge (Norwegian: Bøkfjordbrua) is a road bridge which crosses at its mouth into Bøkfjord, in Sør-Varanger municipality in Troms og Finnmark (Norway) and it is the last piece of the road project between Kirkenes in Norway and Pechenga in Russia on Europavei 105. The bridge, made of a 500t steel arch, is 120m long and 25m high. Teufelberger-Redaelli supplied and installed No.96 hangers made of FLC cables HDPE sheathed. The arch bridge was fabricated in Germany completed with all the hanger installation. After fabrication the bridge was loaded on a barge and towed 3,000km North to Kirkenes. The barge was positioned and anchored in the tidal inlet and the bridge was installed in the final position. At the end of the final positioning, Teufelberger-Redaelli was able to proceed with the final tensioning of the cables.
