Mountain Foot Bridge
35m Mountain Foot Bridge (MFB) including its launching system was developed at R&DE(E), Pune to bridge clear gaps. The bridge is made of high-strength aluminum alloy components. The system is made compact as considering limited availability of back space during launching in mountain regions. After number of R&DE(E)’s technical trials, prototype of this bridging system has completed extensive user trials with Indian Army. Transfer of Technology is handed over to Worldwide Oilfield Machine Pvt. Ltd, Pune by considering the technical, financial capabilities.
