On 09/03/2017, GEOCEAN signed an EPC contract for repairing pipe intakes and outfall in Port Said Power Plant.
- Replacement of portions of the 4 defective lines in DN2300 GRP (2 intakes + 2 outlets) by 4 HD2500 SDR33 tubes (PN6 Bars). The opening of the soil is stabilized by sheet piling on the path of the replacement.
- Replacement causes: differential subsidence of the GRP-bearing soil along the “unsupported” path of the tubes which have caused the disconnection and breakage of the pipe connections since the plant end of construction (2000).
- Length of GRP to be replaced
Intake – 2 x 125m
Outfall – 2 x 170m
Chlorine line – 2 x 145m
