About the Project

In this project, Shapir undertook a comprehensive scope of activities, including earthworks totaling 400,000 cubic meters, construction of reinforced concrete piles utilizing the bentonite method, establishment of load-bearing elements, creation of various foundations, groundwater level reduction, construction of underground outlet channels, and the erection of the station’s command building.

Additionally, the group executed the construction of a sea pier and bridge for the coal conveyor at the power plant. The pier, extending approximately 2 kilometers, is specifically designed for coal unloading, constructed from prefabricated structures weighing up to 300 tons each. 

The accompanying bridge conveyor, facilitating access for the coal conveyor, comprises prefabricated pallets. A distinctive feature of the project was the utilization of a floating concrete plant, specially built on a barge ship, for all castings in the heart of the sea. Furthermore, the installation of bridge pillars in shallow sea areas was conducted as part of the project’s intricate operations.
