Ormazabal Solutions for the reconstruction of the city of Mariana in Brazil

  • Ormazabal has participated with its concrete products and solutions in the reconstruction of this city after one of the biggest environmental disasters in the country

The catastrophe of the Bento Rodrigues dams (35 kilometres from the city of Mariana) that occurred on November 5, 2015 when the retaining walls gave way, is considered the biggest environmental disaster in the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais.

The collapse of the dams, built to deposit waste from the extraction of iron ore, caused much of the city of Mariana to be covered by this waste.

The customer, Encel (Prefeitura de Mariana), has appreciated the reliability of the concrete solutions provided.
