Argentina. Yacireta dam.

The sealing and stability of dams generally requires substantial grouting, sealing and drainage works. The techniques of boring, injection and drilling, which are the original activities of Soletanche Bachy, are now complemented by other procedures, including diaphragm cut offs, either in concrete, plastic concrete or slurry, and jet grouted cutoffs.

Soletanche Bachy’s activity in this field remains substantial on all the continents, both for new work and for rehabilitation and reinforcement works, particularly where raising of height of dams is required.
