Bauer has confirmed that it will meet the February 2016 deadline for completion of foundations work for a new coal-fired power station in the Dominican Republic.
Main contracting joint venture Odebrecht-Tecnimont-Estrella appointed Bauer to undertake the work on the power station in Santo Domingo in September last year.
This is the biggest contract undertaken by Bauer’s local subsidiary Bauer Fundaciones Dominicana so far.
The scope of work includes 210,000 linear metres of stone columns, 50,000 linear metres of polymer-supported bored piles and a 6,500m2 diaphragm wall to depths of up to 30m.
Development of the 750MW power station, which is due to come online in 2017, is key infrastructure for the Dominican Republic where national blackouts are a common occurrence.
