Worktop on a hanging cabinet


We're redoing our bathrooms.
We need to install a CaesarStone(quartz) worktop of 2.7mX0.6m (~50kg/m) on a hanging cupboard unit. Need an advice to achieve sufficient strength.

Not enough info..........quartz tops are heavy and need a solid mounting surface. A pic of better description might help.

If that box unit is strongly constructed --the side walls will give plenty of support for the size slab that is planned.--Mike--

Seems like its going between 2 walls ?
If so & you can secure into studs you should be fine

Thanks guys.
Indeed it's going between 2 walls, however, the length (2.70m) made us worry than there may be a droop at the sink area and the counter top might break.
Eventually we have decided to add 2 steel supports.
