Case Study - Desalination Plant

Project. Treating subsidence in desalination plant in UAE. June 2011 (9 days duration).

Cause of problemLoose and badly compacted soils at deeper levels. Dewatering in the vicinity of the plant resulted in fluctuating water levels exacerbating the settlement problems.

Solution. Deep Injection to 3m and Slab Lifting over total area of 330 m². In one case the plant equipment base was lifted by up to 300 mm and has remained stable despite the winter rainfall and the rise in water levels.
