Beni Amrane

BENI AMRANE
1985-1988

Water from storage reservoir "Beni Amrane" is pumped by the pump station (situated near the dam) through concrete pipeline (length 31 km, diameter 2,0 m) to "Keddara" storage reservoir, and then it is conveyed to the water treatment plant in Boudouaou and further to water reservoirs in city of Algiers. In execution of this project our company has applied for the first time the roller compacted concrete. 60.000 m3 of RCC was placed for the protection of downstream dam slope and flat section downstream from the stilling pool.
