New hospital expansion uses MagnaDense concrete

Skåne University Hospital expands the current cancer-treatment operations. At the same time they will link these rooms to the new building. A modern construction that will include such facilities as a reception area, radiotherapy department and six new radiation treatment rooms.

NCC will use Minelco’s magnetite-based product, MagnaDense as a concrete aggregate for building the six new radiation treatment rooms. For this project they require a volume of 5,000 m3 of heavy concrete with a density of 3.8 t/m3.

“This contract for delivery of MagnaDense further strengthen our position as a supplier to radiation shielding”, says Bob Boulton, CEO of Minelco.
