National Paper Mill
Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
The expanded Abu Dhabi National Paper Mill (ADNPM) in Mussafah, U.A.E., is one of the largest and most technically advanced producers of jumbo tissue paper rolls in the Middle East. The ADNPM produces over 65,000 tons of tissue paper annually. The main building features a 6 m deep basement, five meters below the sea water level. Waterproofing the concrete basement was the main challenge of the expansion project.
PENETRON ADMIX was tested and chosen as the preferred concrete protection solution for over 4,600 m3 / 6,020 cubic yards of concrete (the slab and retaining walls of the production line facility). All construction joints were sealed with PENEBAR SW-45 waterstop (˃420 m / 1,390 feet). Further, PENETRON, PENECRETE MORTAR and PENEPLUG eliminated any leaks in the foundation piles.
