OUR CIVIL ENGINEERING TEAM IS COLLABORATING ON IMPROVING THE ECOLOGICAL FLOW IN THE RIVER ECOSYSTEM IN ORFES, CATALONIA
Our Civil Works department has participated in the formation of a notch in the weirs of the Fluvià River in Orfes, Catalonia, with the aim of controlling the release of maintenance flows in the river weirs.
The project involved the transportation of earth and the formation of an earthen barrier using mechanical means, the demolition of the weir to form a notch with dimensions of 3.7m x 0.40m x 1m, the construction of the finish surface in the notch, and the placement of two informative signs about the work.
At Iplan, we have fulfilled the implementation of equipment and materials on site, the preparation of the work sites, the auxiliary means, the adaptation of crane access roads for the transportation of materials, and the necessary safety systems (lifelines, scaffolding, stairs, walkways, railings needed to carry out the work). Likewise, committed to responsible management to reduce the environmental impact of our activity, we have provided an environmental protection system and a removal and cleaning at the end of the project.
This work has improved the ecological flow in the river ecosystem, regulating the amount of water needed to conserve its aquatic ecosystem and maintain its ecological functioning.
