JEC 2017 Innovation Award-Winning Acciona Construccion S.A. Pultruded FRP Panels Uses Crestapol 1212 FST Resin System

February 20 2017

Acciona Construccion S.A. has won this year’s JEC Construction Innovation Award for its highly innovative pultruded composite panels, used as a leak-proof lining system in a Spanish high-speed railway tunnel construction project. There were limited retrofit solutions available to solve the water ingress problem in a section of the tunnel. The innovative GRP composite panels developed by Acciona Construccion S.A proved to be the best solution to this demanding construction problem. The lightweight, flexible and water resistant glass fiber reinforced lining panels and tunnel wall fixing system proved to be more cost effective and a better long term alternative to steel and concrete lining options considered, also meeting demanding subterranean fire standards.

Acciona used a total of 1,700 tons of filled Crestapol 1212 pultrusion resin and glass fiber reinforcement materials, pultruding more than 15,000 composite panels which lined approximately 200,000 square meters of the tunnel walling and eliminated the water ingress problem.
