Alsina participates in the construction of the Canary Islands Oceanic Platform – Plocan (Spain)

Last year 2015 Alsina Formwork started its participation in the construction of the PLOCAN (Canarias Oceanic Platform) by the client Plataforma Maritima UTE (formed by the companies Acciona with an 80% of the shares and Lopesan with a 20%) in Las Palmas (Spain).
This maritime civil works project consists of building a metal and reinforced concrete structure on a caisson so that it allows anchoring offshore and doing oceanic tests.

To do this, a 4 m. high wall must be built on a maritime caisson of approximately 32×38 meters, and then a slab of 40 cm must be implemented on its perimeter. Subsequently they must run 93 linear meters on top of the slab walls at 9 meters high and crowned it with a 1.85 meters high section with an exterior protection wall. The project involves the construction of about 1200 square meters of slab, on one floor.

For the execution of this project, which is scheduled to end this year, Alsina has provided a variety of its systems and formwork solutions, among which are 600m2 of Alisply walls, Aligners, 60 linear meters of C- 160 Climbing system, Alumecano, G40 Post-shore, Alispilar, Alsina multidirectional (access ladders, scaffolding, concreting turret), its Alsipercha safety system and horizontal Multiform.
Alsina has vast experience in implementing several projects related to the marine environment, including Port silos, dock extensions, screen walls, Port lighthouses, capping beams, seawalls and the construction of dikes to cope with the sea force.

In all these projects Alsina has contributed its engineering capacity, whether performing solutions that complement their formwork systems or adapting existing ones to the needs of each project and client. In addition to his own experience, Alsina also offers Rubrica’s expertise in order to provide their systems to expand the company’s service capabilities for the safe execution of concrete structures in such a complex environment as the maritime.
