UHPC for People
It feels like it was yesterday when the entire RDC team went to Vasc Country to install our first raft, the first floating UHPC farm in the world. It was October of 2016. Now, 6 years later, is already a good moment to start checking if this solution is as good as we promised under the dynamic and aggressive marine environment.
Traditional rafts are 20 x 27 m floating structures typically made of eucalyptus wood and six steel floaters protected with GFRP. These structures are flexible and economic, but their lifespan does not generally exceed the 15 years, and their maintenance costs are significant. This problem was noticed by RDC, which designed and patented a UHPC raft in 2015.
Today I would like to introduce the Newsletters of the European Projects (H2020) where we are involved. As I mentioned in previous posts, RDC is a company that has developed a distinctive strength thanks to continuous and close-to-market innovation. To do it in a health way and with good character, we decided to do it as a balanced person organizes its life: Enjoying both the time alone and the social relations. Thus, part of our R&D is internal, and the other part is in cooperation with other partners. Today’s blog talks about the latter.
