Project description :

Important foundation work for the electrical power plant for the KNS plant. This worksite was characterised by the execution of 2 identical lines of concrete, running 2 300m³ each (a total of 4 600m³). These massive foundations were specific in that they required our deep foundations teams to install a large number of ground anchors. The main massif of 550m³ required 6 weeks of reinforcement laying (180T) carried out in one go, by two teams that relayed each other over an 18 hour period of continuous work.
