The Iremel Reservoir project comprised the construction of a water pipeline (two polyethylene and steel pipelines – 538 m long) with protective concrete corridors that run from the water intake site at the reservoir down to the pumping stations. Also included in the project was a transformer substation at the Iremel hydroelectric complex.
The Penetron repair team routed out the leaking construction joints and cut back any exposed rebar stubs and damaged concrete to fill in the routed-out construction joints with PENECRETE MORTAR. PENEPLUG was initially applied to quickly seal all active leaks in construction joints. In a final step, the repaired concrete surfaces were coated with an application of PENETRON, a topical crystalline material.
