Carpi Tech, waterproofing specialists and contractors with geomembranes, has finalized the waterproofing work on the upstream face of Santa Maria cofferdam in Sinaloa, Mexico. The project was developed by Conagua (Comisión Nacional del Agua). Carpi Tech collaborated with ICA Ingenieros Civiles Asociados on the project.
The waterproofing used on the dam includes a patented system and Carpi Tech’s SIBELON Geomembrane. The geomembrane is exposed and in intimate contact with the surface placed during construction of the casting curbs. The 40-meter-high dam forms part of the Baluarte-Presidio irrigation system, and will provide potable water for Rosario and Escuinapa.
Carpi Tech develops the engineering of the geomembrane system independently or in collaboration with the main designer of each project. Its technical team is comprised of civil, geotechnical and hydraulic engineers. For each project it manufactures and supplies the most suitable waterproofing materials, and has developed polymeric geomembranes – manufactured exclusively for Carpi by certified third parties with the trademark SIBELON for applications with high water heads, high water speeds and extreme environmental conditions.
