Bridge for AVE

Gases for bridge-building

In August, Talleres Dizmar, one of Messer’s biggest cylinder gas customers in Spain, completed the construction of a 1,700-metre-long bridge over the Ría de Arousa inlet in Galicia. It was built for the AVE high-speed train, which will cut the journey time from Madrid to the north-west of the country to just three hours. Messer mainly supplied Ferroline welding gases and oxygen during the 18-month construction of the bridge. Dizmar has worldwide operations and was also involved in the construction of the Brazilian World Cup stadium Arena Pernambuco.
