ALRO SA’s downstream subsidiary in charge with the extrusion business line has become a supplier for the most sophisticated industries by providing high and very high value-added products for heliports constructions. Thus, Vimetco Extrusion entered a partnership with ABC Development Aviation, a company certified by The Romanian Civil Aeronautical Authority AACR as developer and installer of aerodrome elements and infrastructure for developing helideck platforms made in Romania.
The first beneficiary of the aluminium profiles platforms produced in Slatina is the heliport of the County Emergency Hospital in Bistrița, which now has the necessary landing decks for helicopters transporting emergency cases, thus avoiding the heavy road transportation, save precious time and increasing the chances to save more lives. Moreover, after this successful project’s implementation at Bistrița, the second heliport is currently being built at the Bacau Emergency County Hospital.
Vimetco Extrusion supplies aluminium profiles and high value-added products, such as connectors for helideck assemblies, developing, altogether with ABC Development Aviation, helidecks made in Romania, with locally produced materials. In its turn, ABC Development Aviation certifies the final products and caters to its proper usage.
Following the completion of the first heliports, other two similar projects are currently in discussions for the Emergency Clinical Hospital for Children Marie S Curie in Bucharest and the Suceava County Emergency Hospital.
