Quality- and sustainability-conscious Sweden has long been interested in composite as a building material. FiberCore had the scoop in 2016 and was able to deliver the first prefab composite bridge to Sweden. Two new decks for the Klaffbron in Malmö, built in 1953; a special Scherzer rolbascule bridge. The original timber bridge deck had been replaced a few years earlier by an aluminum deck. However, this soon showed cracks. After this renovation with a FiberCore composite deck, the bridge can last for many years.
