Reinforced Concrete Technology with FRP Composite Presented at an International Forum
Juliusz Żach, the Head of Research and Development at Mostostal Warszawa, presented a groundbreaking solution at a professional conference in Gothenburg that has revolutionized the way pedestrian bridges made from FRP composite are constructed.
The event, titled "Innovations in Concrete Construction Paving the Way to Climate Neutrality," brought together representatives from construction companies, scientists, investors, and concrete manufacturers.
- Participating in the conference allowed us to showcase our innovative solution on a business and scientific platform. In Sweden, due to the harsh climate, great emphasis is placed on the durability of infrastructure, and prefabrication has been practiced and appreciated for many years. It's the perfect place to promote our technology - said Juliusz Żach, the Head of Research and Development.
The technology of reinforced concrete with FRP composite, developed in the Research and Development Department of Mostostal Warszawa, represents a significant step towards the efficient construction of long-lasting bridge structures, benefiting both users and the natural environment. Its most important advantages include:
- guarantee of efficient and swift assembly: By utilizing prefabrication and ready-made components, the assembly can be completed much faster compared to traditional construction methods,
- corrosion resistance: Prefabricated footbridges are entirely corrosion-resistant, meaning they are not prone to damage caused by weather conditions, ensuring lower maintenance costs,
- minimal environmental impact: Prefabricated footbridges can contribute to reducing the environmental burden by shortening construction time and reducing waste compared to traditional construction methods,
- the highest standard of work safety and process safety: The prefabrication technology employed enhances safety in both the production process and the assembly of footbridges. Work ergonomics are improved, and production processes become more efficient.
