Cemex, one of the world's three largest cement producers, said it supplied special reinforced concrete that is structurally light and features special pigments for the Line 1 streetcar project in Zaragoza, Spain.
"We are very proud to be able to offer world class solutions to our customers in Spain and to contribute to improving the country's infrastructure," Cemex Spain president Jaime Ruiz de Haro said in a statement.
Some 140,000 cubic meters of special concrete were supplied for the 12.8-kilometer (7.9-mile) streetcar line, which runs south-north and crosses the downtown area and the historic district.
The line was completed recently and officials announced plans in June to build a second line targeted for completion in 2015, Cemex said.
The streetcar lines provide an essential service for the people of Zaragoza, whose population reached 700,000 in 2010, the Mexican cement giant said.
The special reinforced concrete offers strength and durability without sacrificing appearance, Cemex said.
CEMEX, which was founded in 1906 in Monterrey, has operations in more than 50 countries. EFE
