Coastal Defense of the City of Pilar
Encofrados Alsina del Paraguay has started to work on the Coastal Defense of the City of Pilar. This defense consists of a set of structures that aim to provide a final solution to the floods that afflict the city.
Pilar is the capital city of the province of Ñeembucú in Paraguay. It is located 358 km from Asunción, on the banks of the Paraguay river and the Ñeembucú creek, on the border with the Argentine Republic.
This spectacular Civil Works project is a project supported by the Government of Paraguay, that includes 22 pumping stations with their reservoirs, 9 km of diversion canal for the San Lorenzo Creek, 6,000 meters of storm drain channels, and 2,700 meters of sewers and effluent pre-treatment.
The Coastal Defense of Pilar will be built in 3 phases. Phase A, currently awarded to Encofrados Alsina includes:
The Coastal Defense, pumping stations with reservoirs, diversion canal for the San Lorenzo Creek, storm drain channels from the terminal, operation and maintenance of the whole system for three years.
In this first phase, Alsina is supplying 1000m2 of Alisply formwork for the walls, C-160 Climbing Platforms, and the lightweight Wallite formwork, for the foundations and footings.
