In February 2015, Concrete Canvas® GCCM* (CC) was used to remediate a series of existing concrete channels, and protect adjacent slopes, at a Geothermal plant in Baja California, Mexico in a project known as the Cerro Prieto Project.The channels were damaged and the client was keen for them to be repaired in order to extend their useful lives rather than having them demolished entirely.
The channels in question lead thermal water from the power generation process of the Geothermal plant, owned by the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE). Slopes adjacent to these channels were also in need of protection to avoid erosion. However, it was paramount that the works carried out on the slopes wouldn’t hinder the activity at the plant. These requirements led to the specification of CC. Support was provided by CC’s local partner.
