East Setauket, NY (PRWEB) June 04, 2014
This month’s opening of the “Line 4” or “Green Line” subway in São Paulo is the newest addition to Brazil’s largest public transportation system. Both an underground and above-ground line, PENETRON crystalline technology was used for the station walls, the "cut and cover" tunnel and all concrete joints. Work was completed in time to get spectators to the world’s biggest sporting event of the year: the FIFA World Cup 2014.
“PENETRON has comprehensive experience and know-how in substantial public projects and infrastructure upgrades,” says Jozef Van Beeck, International Sales & Marketing Director of The PENETRON Group. “Around the world, our crystalline technology helps transform porous concrete into a highly durable material by reducing permeability. This has been proven to significantly increase the durability and lifetime of concrete structures.”
Ramping up Brazil
The range of infrastructure projects that have benefitted from PENETRON technology is almost endless and includes everything from bridges, highways and tunnels to shipping ports, water treatment plants and airports. A selection of the most recent projects for the FIFA World Cup in Brazil include:
“PENETRON Brazil has finished – and continues to work on – numerous infrastructure projects all over the country,” says Jozef Van Beeck. “But we’re also very busy with civil projects around the world.”
Doing It All
The underground subway lines, airports and port renewals in Brazil showcase only a few of the types of infrastructure projects for which PENETRON has become well-known. The PENETRON crystalline technology is found in a wide range of applications. A few highlights include:
“When it comes to the challenges of civil projects, PENETRON does them all,” adds Robert Revera, President and CEO of The PENETRON Group. “Such projects demand maximum longevity, and that’s why ‘durability by PENETRON’ has had such success around the world.”
