Keeping up Foreign Relations: The Honourable David Ridgway last week met with SIS trading partner Infracore Company in The Netherlands, citing the impressive Technology in Manufacturing which has encompassed Australia

We are thrilled to acknowledge the meeting last week between The Hon David Ridgway, Agent General for South Australia, and Simon de Jong, Founder of InfraCore Company in The Netherlands. The meeting highlighted the impressive FRP composite technology in which SIS has now completed the technology transfer in, and are now putting into practice, through manufacturing here in South Australia. We are proud to have now completed the setup of our state-of-the-art facility, to manufacture sustainable FRP panels for applications such as road bridges, pedestrian bridges, pontoons and jetties. To learn more about this impressive technology, contact us on to arrange a facility tour or to request further information.

SIS Congratulates FiberCore Europe on its Partnership in the “Smart Circular Bridge” Project

SIS has been working alongside FiberCore Europe for over four years to bring the World’s most advanced FRP Composite Bridges to the Oceania region. SIS would like to congratulate FiberCore Europe for being one of the 15 partners involved in the “Smart Circular Bridge” Project. The first “Smart Circular Bridge” was recently installed in Almere, Netherlands, which has a span of 15 metres and is built using flax fibres, (to replace traditional glass fibre) which is a fast growing plant. This combined with the use of a special bio-resin, means this infrastructure offering is truly groundbreaking in the sustainability credentials it offers. The EU project highlights the exciting prospects of using this innovative material in future projects. Two more “Smart Circular Bridges” will be built to cater for pedestrians and cyclists in Germany and The Netherlands and we hope one day soon, Australia.

SIS Attends InfraCore® Company’s Agents Conference 2022 in France

Last week Sustainable Infrastructure Systems (SIS) attended the 2022 InfraCore® Conference in Bayeux, France along with other Agent partners from all over the world. It was great to meet many for the first time and listen to the perspective on FRP bridges and applications from other parts of the world. We all see the very large market opportunity for increased use of the InfraCore® technology in the pedestrian and road bridge markets and further into the ship building, marine infrastructure and defence industries. SIS Director – Engineering, Luigi Rossi represented SIS at the conference. Luigi delivered a very well received presentation to the conference attendees on the opportunities the technology opens in the markets we serve from the perspective of our part of the world. We would like to thank InfraCore® Company and FiberCore® Europe for hosting this successful event and Luigi certainly enjoyed the cultural excursions around Normandy! We are already looking forward to meeting again.
