Masterbuild starts construction of the new TGA Research Center in Green Aerospace Technologies in Craiova
Masterbuild – General Contractor & Developer announces the start of works for the new Research Center in Green Aerospatial Technologies – “TGA Technologies for Green Aviation” in Craiova, a total investment of more than 17 million Euro, co-financed through the European Regional Development Fund, coordinated by I.N.C.A.S. – National Institute for Aerospace Research “Elie Carafoli”.
Located in Dolj – Craiova, in the proximity of the International Craiova Airport, on a land area of 14.000 sqm, the new TGA Center will have a total built area of almost 8.000 sqm, benefitting from 2 technology halls, office areas, a laboratories area, as well as spaces dedicated to meetings and discussion, good practice transfer for the researchers and for the partners and collaborators. The Center will benefit from advanced technologies such as innovative robotic systems, revolutionary technologies for producing components, next generation installations which will accelerate the productivity level, advanced design and 3D prototyping systems.
“The new TGA Center in Craiova, unique in the region, will significantly increase Romania’s research – development and innovation capacity in the aerospace industry, as well as Romania’s collaboration in major European Union research projects. The center is located in a highly industrial area, which will benefit both from the synergies created by this new development and from a number of over 300 locally generated jobs,” states Catalin Nae, General Manager of I.N.C.A.S.
Construction works will begin this September and it will be handed over to the Beneficiary next year. At this moment the technical execution project is under completion. The implementation of the financing project will last until the end of 2023.
“The construction project is based on sustainable principles and technologies, ensuring both the energy efficiency of buildings, the health and safety of occupants, costs optimization, at the same time minimizing the impact on the environment or optimizing the potential of the location. For example, this is one of the few public investment projects that integrates the BMS – Building Management System, which is specific to the latest generation buildings, allowing an accurate monitoring and more efficient energy consumption, to avoid unnecessary waste of resources during the operation of the building,” says Mirela Harmanescu, COO, Head of Engineering & Technical Dept. within Masterbuild.
