CEMEX provides specialty concrete for bridge to Barcelona airport in Spain

Date published: January 30, 2012

CEMEX, in partnership with contractor Copisa Group, have recently completed the first stretch of a bridge that will connect the Port of Barcelona with Barcelona airport. The entire structure is expected to be completed later this year, with CEMEX providing over 30,000 m³ of different types of specialty ready-mix concrete.

The bridge, which crosses Llobregat River, had specific requirements. The three pillars of the structure needed high-strength concrete that would support a road 300 meters long and 30 meters wide. The material also had to flow through the intricate framework, be auto-compacting, and maintain workability during two hours.

To produce the concrete for this demanding job, CEMEX used its cement CEM I 52’5 along with a mix of aggregates and proprietary state of the art additives. The product was up to the task and CEMEX will continue providing other specialty concrete mixes for the other phases of the project.

CEMEX continually works to develop solutions for its customers’ building challenges. Leveraging years of experience, a worldwide pool of knowledge, and state-of-the-art expertise, CEMEX constantly designs special concrete products that fulfill customers’ and the construction industry’s increasingly demanding performance requirements.
