Descripción del proyecto

This Project consisted of the construction of the reinforced ringwall foundations for the 16 fuel storage tanks at the Melones Island terminal in the Bay of Panama.  This project presented particular logistical challenges because of the remote location, for example casting the 20m diameter foundations in a monolithic pour.  The work also included the installation of compacted fill and bentonite liners for leak prevention.
