30,000 to of reinforced steel was installed. Construction Concept The reinforced concrete Reservoir is built on a 33 km drainage system. The purpose of it is to observe leak tightness and to drain potentially accumulated water in order to prevent structural damages. Each of the three storage tanks measures 375 m x 175 m with a depth of 5,5 m. The Tanks are partitioned into 4 compart­ ments, which are further divided into 8 smaller sections by 9,500 running metres of running walls.

In order to ensure leak tightness 40 km of waterstop and 300,000 m² PVC membranes were installed. After completion of the shell and core works all tanks underwent a series of leak tightness tests, with 65 million litres of water. A network of approximately 100 fully automated valves enabled the supervision of the supply and drain of drinking water from a centralised control centre. Up-to-date measuring instruments allow a fully automated control of water quality, water pressure and water levels in the tanks as well as a CCTV system covering the entire site.

Tight Program To achieve the Program 2,000 labourers were working 24 hours per day, 7 days a week. At the peak of the construction 13 Tower cranes were operating with outside temperatures of up to 50°C. In order to provide the construction site with the necessary daily quantity of 1,000 m³ concrete, a batching plant was erected directly on site. To assure safety for the entire work force throughout all construction phases was indeed a highly challenging task. Due to regular site inspections carried out by safety and health protection experts and safety training provided for all labourers...
