31/05/2016
    Applus+ Norcontrol makes all the necessary NDT for the new stadium´s roof structure.
     The new cover works of the Athletic Club Bilbao stadium San Mamés, have begun once the Spanish First Division season has finished. Inbisa is the company that will do the construction project at a cost of more than 12 million euros. The works should be completed before August 8th, 2016.
     
    Inbisa Construction has hired Applus+ Norcontrol, to perform all the necessary NDT for the new roof structure construction, such as ultrasound, visual inspection, magnetic particle and liquid penetrant.
    In the project they are working the Madrid´s and Northern Mechanical departments and the Laboratory of Rubí, as three different companies are making the structure, one in each of the mentioned zones. Our experts also participate in the assembly stage at the stadium itself.
     
    This is not the first time Applus+ Norcontrol "plays" in this football field. In 2013 we participated in the removal of the emblematic stadium crown arc 115 meters of light (long) and 16.28 of arrow (high).
     
     
    The Northern Mechanical department performed the inspection works at a 30m of height, of all clamping welded parts required for delicate disassembly operation.
