Keller has been appointed by Algeria’s state utility company Sonelgaz to undertake major ground engineering work for a new power plant in Mostaganem.
Under the deal for the 1450MW combined cycle power plant, Keller will construct a 90,000m3 working platform and install 260,000m of stone columns to mitigate against liquefaction and bore 47,500m of bearing piles for the structure.
The work has been valued at £28M and will be completed in early 2019.
“This is Keller’s largest ever project in Algeria where we have been active for 12 years,” said Keller EMEA division president Thorsten Holl. “The award recognises our capacity to bring a full design solution to the client as well as our reputation for executing to high standards.”
