Developed by Wavegarden SL, an engineering company, the Praia da Grama surfing pool recreates a beach environment far from the coast and is the world’s first private beach in a gated community. The patented Wavegarden technology comprises a unique hydrodynamic wavefoil, powered by a gearless drive system (similar to a ski lift), an electronic control system, and an integrated water treatment plant. Underlying the lagoon and wave-generating machinery is a reinforced concrete basin.
Easily mixed in during batching, PENETRON ADMIX was used to treat 9,000 m3 (11,800 yds3) of concrete for the wave pool, and 1,290 m (4,300 feet) of PENEBAR SW-55 swellable waterstop strips were installed to seal the construction joints.
