Soletanche Bachy playing key role in construction of Three-runway System at Hong Kong International Airport
An innovative technical solution.
• One of the biggest ground reinforcement operations ever carried out by Soletanche Bachy
• A €380 million euro contract (HKD3.31 billion)
As part of the extension of Hong Kong International Airport, Soletanche Bachy has entered a 50-50 joint-venture with its South
Korean partner Sambo E&C. Together, they are carrying out soil reinforcement using the Geomix® technique (or Cutter Soil Mixing - CSM) in height-restricted conditions near the airport’s existing north runway.
The contract, signed at the end of September 2016 and worth €380 million (HKD3.31 billion), also includes the construction of a temporary 1,500 square metres metal platform on piles around the
approach beacons to the north runway, which will remain in service throughout.
