Hospital patients and doctors are protected against radiation by wall, floors and ceilings made with high density MagnaDense concrete.

Last week Minelco signed a contract with NCC, one of the leading construction companies in the Nordic region, for the supply of Minelco MagnaDense products to a new radiation treatment clinic at Skåne University Hospital in Lund, Sweden.

The new radiation treatment clinic will cover an area of 10,700 square meters over five floors. The current cancer-treatment operations are to be expanded and linked to the new building that will include such facilities as a reception area, radiotherapy department and six new radiation treatment rooms. NCC will use Minelco’s Magnetite products as a concrete aggregate for building the six new radiation treatment rooms, which will require a volume of 5,000 m3 of heavy concrete with a density of 3.8 t/m3.

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