Alsina participates in the construction of the marine platforms for the Shougang mining project in Peru

The project: Marine platforms for desalination plant included in the Mining Project in Marcona

Alsina’s Formwork delegation in Peru started in 2018 its collaboration in the construction of two marine platforms belonging to the Shougang Mining Project in the mining and port town of Marcona (Peru).

This maritime civil works project, which will be completed this year 2018, consists of the formwork implementation of two maritime concrete slabs on metal piles, which will connect the underwater pumps of a desalination plant belonging to the extension project of the iron mine.

In order to carry out the project, Alsina has provided the necessary solutions to solve the formwork of the two platforms, with dimensions of 22 meters by 12.8 meters, and 6.3 meters by 3 meters respectively, on a body of water at 2 meters above sea level.

Alsina: customized effective solutions

For the implementation of the project, Alsina has supplied its Alisply Walls and Multiform Horizontal formwork systems, and has also designed its 100Tn descent wedges adapted to the needs of the project, since this needed a metallic support compatible with the metallic piles to support the slabs of concrete, which are 1.60 meters in thickness. Thus, the descent wedges were used on the metal brackets that at the same time supported W beams, on which the Multiform Horizontal system was placed in order to carry out the bottom of the platform formwork.

Alsina’s Alisply range includes several recoverable formwork systems for the construction of walls and columns. This is a resistant, versatile and compatible system with all other accessories from Alisply family systems, a fact that makes so much more profitable the formwork equipment on site.
The formwork surface of different types of Alisply is made of plywood, which offers many advantages over metal surfaces, such as lower weight, higher concrete quality, increased performance and greater resistance to inclement weather.

On the other hand, Alsina’s Multiform system, consisting of double UPN metal beams, wooden beams, strips and turnbuckles is one of Alsina’s most versatile systems, allowing “ad hoc” design of the necessary recoverable formwork to adapt to any geometry whether they are straight, curved or one sided walls, lintels or bridge boards.
