Allerton supplies support masts for Dublin Airport
Two steel suspension masts have been erected at Dublin Airport as part of the on-going £85M Pier D construction project.
Fabricated, shot-blasted, painted and supplied by Allerton Engineering, working on behalf of main steelwork contractor SIAC Butlers Steel, the two 26t masts are each 35m tall and support a new bridge connecting the terminal building with the new Pier D.
“The masts provide an integral structural element for the new bridge as the support cables will be fixed to them,” said Trevor Salmon, Project Manager for Allerton Engineering.
Each mast will have an optical beacon at its tip as a warning to aircraft. “We supplied the masts with fixings for the beacons and cables already in place,” said Mr Salmon.
Pier D is a new 15,000m² boarding gate facility which is due to open this Autumn. It will have 12 boarding gates serving 14 aircraft parking stands.
