The National sports complex Olympisky in Kiev, Ukraine is a universal construction and the major place holding football matches of the Ukrainian national team. It is the major sports ground in Ukraine and one of the largest stadiums in Europe. The pictures depicting different stages of cable roof system rising are presented below.
After lifting the cable roof system it is necessary to fix the cables using supporting irons. Right now they are temporarily supported with steel wire ropes.
A guy anchor will be fixed under each ring beam.
It is not easy to make an anchor fit the beam as it is heavy enough. The anchors are shifted with the help of hoisting units.
Now the anchor and the beam are tied together.
It is much more difficult to handle underlying guy cables. Unlike the upper ones which are shifted to the columns during the main lifting procedure, the lower cables are first moved to the lower ring. Adapters get fixed and only then the cables are stretched. Besides, lower adapters can’t be moved in one round.
The steel wire rope is pulled up with a special machine that operates on gasoline. The method is rather convenient as you don’t have to do it manually.
