Descripción del proyecto
As part of the expansion works of the Panama Canal, the Panama Canal Authority awarded us the construction project of foundations, supply and installation of 25 galvanized steel towers ranging in height from 40 feet to 140 feet high. In addition, accessories such as ladders, platforms and lightning rod (protection of structures against lightning) were installed near the cyclone fence and daytime marking boards. These signals will be used to aid navigation of vessels to transit the Panama Canal, particularly the embroidered Gatun Locks, Bohio, Peña Blanca, Buena Vista, Juan Grande, Mamei and Gamboa. For the 13 threading signs by water access, the option of replacing the foundations of concrete pads for foundations with head and micropiles was proposed and implemented to minimize the environmental impact on the sites. Logistics transfer of personnel, materials and equipment to these locations as well as the excavation and the erosion control in San Pablo Sur border was considered. In the execution of the works by terrestrial access, 9 foundations with concrete pads were kept. Excavations were also performed to stabilize slopes, placement of geotextiles and erosion control works.
