Koprivnica, 9 February 2021 – Company IGMA d.o.o Koprivnica, a member of NEXE Grupa has developed new technology for production of prefabricated platform elements from cast concrete. The need for development of products which require new technologies has occured due to investment projects regarding construction and reconstruction of railway infrastructure in Republic of Croatia. Let us remind you that in this European Year of Rail, the Government of Croatia continues with reconstruction and construction of transport infrastructure throughout Croatia. New products have thus already been installed in reconstruction projects in Stupnik, Blinjski Kut and Laslovo – Korođ and are currently being produced for railway reconstruction projects Virovitica – Pitomača, Zaprešić – Zabok and railway station reconstruction project Sesvetska Sopnica.
"This order triggered a number of new challenges we had to face. In collaboration with technologists and construction and mechanical engineers, we have designed a way and technology for production of platform elements from cast concrete. Improvements are evident in comparison to classic shaping of concrete elements by vibro-pressing, earth wet concrete, that we have used in production so far. Structure of cast concrete is uniform, reinforcement protection is improved because concrete is without or with minimum micro-pores. With concrete admixtures we achieve high water absorption resistance and resistance to frost and salt", said Karlo Šisl, director of IGMA d.o.o. Koprivnica.
Prefabricated platform elements from cast concrete are produced in accordance with provisions of standard HRN EN 15258:2008 according to 2+ system for retaining walls. This product has a Factory Inspection Certificate, Declaration of Performance and is under constant certification supervision.
IGMA d.o.o. Koprivnica has been in business system of Nexe Grupa since February 2006. In these 14 years IGMA d.o.o. saw investments to the amount of HRK 60.5 million. In 2008 IGMA d.o.o. was certified according to standard ISO 9001. This confirms focus on continuous process improvement, product quality and customer's satisfaction.
