The Ministry of Modernisation has awarded a contract to GEOCEAN for the construction of the CHPF SWAC maritime works (package n°1) that consists in the installation of two pipes:

  • An Intake Line composed of a OD 710mm HDPE pipe with a length of approximately 3.800m, down to a water depth of -890m.
  • An Outfall Line equipped with a diffuser in its terminal part composed of a 710mm HDPE pipe, approximately 200m long.
