Graphenglass, an innovative business focused on graphene-enhanced materials put into everyday use, has announced plans to open a plant in Spain to manufacture graphene-enhanced poles for power lines and communications.
The intention is to start up the first Graphenglass in a few motnhs, with a production capacity of around 15,000 poles and a modular capacity to be able to grow as the demand for these materials develops.
The company’s objective is to contribute to the replacement of thousands of telecommunications and electrical poles with a solution that has properties such as lower weight and greater resistance, which facilitates their installation and durability.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, Graphenglass worked to improve the situation of patients by creating a circuit divider device, printed in 3D technology, usable for multiple lung ventilation for patients with Covid-19 and with a design for causing the minimum pressure drops of the circulating air.
Graphenglass aims to help reduce the presence of highly polluting materials using their technology. The Company is also is preparing an ambitious plan to modernize electricity distribution networks. The company will reportedly work towards the replacement of 120,000 wooden posts contaminated with a hazardous material called creosote with other materials in areas like Andalusia, Catalonia, Aragon, Extremadura, Castilla y León, Canarias and las Balearic Islands.
Vicente Montesinos, leader of Grapheglass, is also the CEO of Globae, the family office of the former owners of Esmalglass and chairman of the board of Soluciones 480, a company dedicated to the design, development and implementation of cloud solutions (standard, proprietary and cybersecurity) aimed at improving the performance and results of organizations.
