The Lauca Hydro Power Plant is located at the foot of a steep slope. The slope requires stabilization to avoid causing damage to the facilities and equipment.
Project site consists of the following types of rock:
The following solutions were used for slope protection:
Top of the cliffs and tower shaped structures partially protected with TECCO® System:
Tower shaped structures partially protected with TECCO® System and SPIDER® System:
At the base of the tower structures:
Regular area of the slope, between rockfall barrier line and top of the cliffs:
Below the rockfall barrier, ca. 10 m high zone directly above slope cut:
Self drilling nails were used due to fractured condition of the rock slope.
Passive rockfall protection barrier:
