Menard Oceania was chosen for its expertise and experience in foundation grouting on similar project. Following pre-drilling and installation of standpipe to reach the bedrock, water testing was carried out. A series of primary, secondary, tertiary and in areas quaternary grouting holes were installed, over the alignment of the new dam foundation. Grouting was carried out in 3m stages, to depth of up to 40m within the highly fractured bedrock, resulting in a waterproof dam foundation.
Throughout the duration of the project Menard Oceania’s skills have proven to be of great value to the Hinze Dam Alliance which has led to a successful partnership and project outcome for all involved.
