Cement and concrete for Danucem

Danucem has been a customer of ÖBB Rail Cargo Group (RCG) for ten years. RCG transports five to six trains per week for the Hungarian building materials manufacturer.

Danucem Magyarország Kft. is a Hungarian manufacturer of building materials and is part of the CRH Group (Cement Roadstone Holding). The company’s products include high-quality grey and white cement as well as ready-mixed concrete, which is used in the construction of roads, residential and commercial buildings all over the world – for example the Messner Mountain Museum in Italy, the football stadium in Atlanta and Panorama City in Bratislava.

A reliable partner for years

The building materials are transported by sustainable rail from the sidings of two cement plants in Slovakia – Rohožník and Turňa nad Bodvou – to the transhipment terminals in Ercsi, Békéscsaba and Dunaújváros in Hungary. RCG handles the transport in Hungary from the Slovakian border. Every week, RCG’s Hungarian subsidiary operates five to six trains for Danucem. The customers are mainly from the Hungarian construction sector. In 2022, the company achieved CO2 savings of around 90 % thanks to sustainable rail transport: Instead of about 7,300 tonnes of CO2 on the road, only about 800 tonnes of CO2 were emitted.
