Indonesian MC-FORUM for bridge protection and repair in Bottrop

On November 25th 2013 eleven project managers and construction supervisors of the Indonesian Ministry of Public Works, who are responsible for the construction of roads and bridges, participated in the MC-FORUM "Bridge Protection and Repair" in the training center of MC in Bottrop.

The MC-FORUM included lectures about different topics from the analysis of damages of the concrete of bridges to concrete repairstructural crack injections and structural strengthening of bridges by means of carbon fibre sheets and lamella to surface protection systems for bridges. The aim of the event was to comprehensively show European standards in the protection and repair of bridges. In the foreseeable future the Indonesian Ministry of Public Works wants to move its standards closer to the higher European ones.

In the practical part of the event the participants were able to practically convince themselves of the outstanding features of the MC-product systems concerning bridge protection and repair, which even surpass the requirements of the European standard.

The MC-FORUM ended with a final discussion in which the participants were able to ask the experts of the MC questions and exchange ideas.
