Secant Pile Wall Dam in Trei Sapanti Valley

The project involved the construction of a Micro Hydro Power Plant that collects water from 4 creeks. With a BG 9 drilling rig Bauer Romania executed a Secant Pile Wall 880 mm embedded in rock, used as a buried watertight dam to reduce water seepage. The dam will be constructed over the SPW, raising the natural water level by at least 4 m. The project was executed in a very remote area in the mountains so the rig had to move by crawlers more than 8 km and had to climb more than 150 m in height.
