As Poslovni Dnevnik/Lucija Spiljak writes, due to investment projects for the renovation and construction of railway infrastructure across Croatia, there was a need for the creation of various products that require new technologies, which was a demand met by the Koprivnica company Igma d.o.o., a member of the Nexe Group from Nasice, which has developed a new technology for the production of prefabricated platform elements made of cast concrete.

This new way and new technology was all designed by this Koprivnica company in close collaboration with technologists and engineers in the construction and mechanical engineering professions.

As explained in more detail by the director of the aforementioned Koprivnica company, Karlo Sisl, the order has raised a number of challenges, but the improvements, he says, are evident when compared to the classic design of concrete elements by vibro-pressing, earth-wet concrete, which they have used in production so far.

“The structure of cast concrete is uniform and its reinforcement protection is improved. With concrete additives, we can achieve a high level of resistance to water absorption and resistance to frost and salt,” explained Sisl.

The Croatian Government continues to build and renovate transport infrastructure throughout Croatia in this, the so-called European Year of Railways, and new products have been installed on the reconstruction projects of Stupnik, Blinjski Kut and Laslovo – Korodj stations, and are currently being produced and delivered for the Virovitica railway construction, as well as the reconstruction project which involves the Pitomaca, Zapresic – Zabok sections, as well as the reconstruction of Sesvetska Sopnica station.

Prefabricated platform elements made of cast concrete are all made in accordance with the provisions of the standard HRN EN 15258: 2008 according to the 2+ system and this product has a Factory Control Certificate, a Declaration of Performance and remains under constant certification supervision.
