May 14, 2021 - Netherlands
InfraCore and CMSI have recently signed a license agreement to bring the world class fibre-reinforced plastic (FRP) composite bridge using the patented InfraCore technology to the Canadian market. InfraCore is a leader in robust load bearing FRP structures for the infrastructure market. CMSI Infrastructure is a certified InfraCore inside manufacturer.
InfraCore technology is patented worldwide and applied in many countries around the globe. Through this agreement, and in line with its corporate strategy, CMSI will design, manufacture, and install permanent traffic, pedestrian and golf bridge solutions to federal, provincial, and municipal parks and private road infrastructure projects across Canada. In addition to the permanent infrastructure, a new modular FRP/steel hybrid temporary bridge will offer an innovative solution to a wide range of industrial sectors, including utilities, oil and gas, forestry, military, and emergency response in Canada and around the world, according to a press release by FiberCore Europe.
The bridges are designed and manufactured featuring InfraCore technology and will provide public and private infrastructure projects a sustainable option to conventional products. The InfraCore technology will take environmental sustainability to a new level in infrastructure projects, providing governments and companies the ability to reduce GHG’s and assist them in meeting their sustainability targets, FiberCore Europe said.
CMSI’s leading-edge manufacturing process will broaden Alberta’s advanced manufacturing ecosystem and contribute to the development and implementation of innovative technology and automation to the Canadian economy. CMSI expects to add up to 30 full time positions in Alberta during the first year of the agreement.
