Canberra (AU)/The Hague (NL), March 18, 2021 – Witnessed by Mrs. Marion Derckx, the Netherlands Ambassador to Australia in Canberra and Mr. Matthew E.K. Neuhaus, the Australian Ambassador to The Netherlands in The Hague, SIS Sustainable Infrastructure Systems and InfraCore Company signed an agreement to license the InfraCore®technology in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands.
This special collaboration provides wonderful opportunities for both companies. SIS will not only increase its market share in Australia and New Zealand, but with its enormous knowledge of the engineering and realization of important infrastructural projects, it will also boost the growth of the InfraCore® technology.
The Australian federal government was represented during the signing ceremony by Mr. Shane Rattenburry, the Australian Minister of Climate Change and Sustainability and Mr. Brendan Smyth, Australian Commissioner for International Engagement.
InfraCore® technology was developed in The Netherlands and has been proven in more than 1,100 heavy-traffic bridges and lock gates worldwide. These were produced by InfraCore® Inside certified manufacturer FiberCore Europe and been delivered and installed all over the world. The InfraCore® technology offers a standardized and modular structural approach. This enables the realization of proven and validated cost-effective (both OPEX/CAPEX) prefab composite (FRP) structures that are easily scalable, lightweight, sustainable, maintenance-free, heavy-duty, damage-tolerant, and load bearing. These bridges are easy to install because they only require a minimal foundation, and they are designed to last over 100 years.
SIS delivers sustainable infrastructure projects for diversified clients around the world in the civil infrastructure, building & construction, oil & gas, mining, aviation, aquaculture, marine & ports, transport & logistics and agriculture market sectors. Drawing on strategic distribution capabilities with headquarters in Adelaide, South Australia and distribution partnerships in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth, SIS also has manufacturing partnerships in Australia, China, North America and Europe. As a InfraCore® Inside certified manufacturer SIS will build prefab composite bridges with InfraCore® Inside for their region.
SIS Associate Director Engineering Luigi Rossi, “This cooperation also is about reflecting the company’s ethos; to take environmental sustainability to another level in infrastructure. This will significantly reduce freight costs and lead times for our clients and will revolutionize the way bridges are manufactured and installed in our region.”
InfraCore Company develops and markets new cross-sector product-market combinations based on InfraCore® Inside in collaboration with strategic partners in the constructive maritime, off-shore, oil & gas, energy, and other industries worldwide. The InfraCore® technology is already implemented in the EU-SUREbridge project (structural renovation of heavy-duty bridge decks on existing bridges) and in the EU-Ramses project (heavy-duty ship decks, rudders for sea vessels, and interiorwalls on cruise ships).
InfraCore founder/CEO Simon De Jong: “It is a real honor to know that our high tech InfraCore® technology is now represented in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands by this great company; SIS Sustainable Infra Structure Systems. Our cooperation will have a huge impact on the future of bridge building in this part of the world.”
