The challenge

Modular power for two pontoons to reshape river

An international construction company was hired to remodel sections of the Bilbao river riverbanks. This would shrink the width at certain parts of the river – but moving earth and water of such volume is far from routine.

The project required two large pontoons, but in order to move the pontoons to the various lengths of river, power would be needed. Reliable, mobile, modular power.

The Solution

A rapid response and 600 kVA of power for project

After consulting with our customer, we devised a solution that would provide the pontoons with the necessary power to get the project moving.

Our equipment is mobile and modular, contained within 20ft ISO standardised containers. This makes all manner of sites, locations and requirements accessible.

This was the case with the pontoons too. We rapidly deployed two generators, totalling 600 kVA. This level of power proved to be more than sufficient in enabling the pontoons to reshape the Bilbao river.
