USA: BAUER Group awarded contract to remediate Center Hill Dam

On September 21, 2011 the Construction segment of BAUER AG was awarded the contract to remediate the Center Hill Dam in Tennessee, USA. The contract was placed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers with local subsidiary BAUER Foundation Corp. following an extensive tender process. The specialist foundation engineering works involve installing approximately 29,000 square metres of underground cut-off wall and pressure grouting on the dam itself.

“This contract award demonstrates the strength of our company in dam remediation,” states Professor Thomas Bauer, Chairman of the Management Board of BAUER AG.”

The BAUER Group, a world technology leader in diaphragm wall construction, has thus added further to its portfolio this contract which has a total value of USD 106 million. The project is scheduled to take around two years to complete. The Construction segment has previously demonstrated its expertise in the field by its remediation of the dyke on Lake Okeechobee in Florida.
