Offshore production of oil and gas is still one of the main sources for fuel and heating energy. HRC has a long record of servicing large offshore construction projects – in fact our story started with this type of structures in 1985. HRC has supplied (and still does supply) products and service to the construction of both, concrete gravity base structures and floating installations.
The cities of the world are growing and consequently many high-rise buildings are constructed. HRC’s high performance products are not only fulfilling the structural demands of such projects, but are also used to meet the special challenges of tall structures, like logistics, safety and speed of construction.
Wind energy produces more than 20% of the total electricity production in countries such as Denmark and Portugal. HRC delivers components to make these constructions stand tall and keep up with the weather changes.
The infrastructure is the backbone for every society, providing the basis not only for the transport of goods and people’s travelling, but also for the supply of energy, water etc. The majority of HRC products are supplied to infrastructure projects, like all types of bridges and tunnels, airports, railway stations and -lines. Most infrastructure projects are one-of its kind, designed for a special purpose and fitting in specific surrounding. HRC’s products contribute to reliable and efficient design and an effective and safe construction process.
Structures in seismic active areas
Of all natural impacts on the build environment, represent earthquakes by far the largest. Special design strategies have been developed to cope with the enormous forces an earthquake releases. Earthquake design is not only based on special approaches, but requires building products, which are able to perform on a high level. HRC products fulfill such “seismic” requirements, are certified and approved by relevant authorities and are frequently specified and used for construction of structures, which are prone to earthquakes.
Even if considered controversial by many, nuclear power is today an important energy source. Besides plants for production of nuclear power, the modern society is in need of storage facilities for nuclear waste, which is produced also by other sectors than the energy production. Nuclear facilities are critical structures, carefully planned, build and monitored. HRC products meet the performance and quality requirements of these demanding projects. Additional, the use of HRC products improves buildability and safety on the building site and speeds up construction.
Large dam projects are special because of their size and impact on the surrounding environment and are carefully considered and planned. The execution of such a structure puts high demands on the designer and the contractor. The consistent high quality and nature of HRC products help to meet arising challenges, like to obtain an effective construction process and safety on site.
