We are delighted to be the first outfitter having the Technical Service Agreement with GTT for the maintenance and refit work on all type of GTT Membrane. Today we are honored again to become the first promoter to achieve the TALA, recognizing our expertise and capabilities after a long effort and more than 10 years of work on GTT membrane containment systems. This would not have been possible without the invaluable collaboration of GTT. “ Declared by Antonio José Llago Hermida, Managing director of Gabadi, SL, during  the signing ceremony.

We are very happy to count Gabadi among our partners.
