Punta Catalina, Dominican Republic

A consortium of Odebrecht, Tecnimont and Ingeniería Estrella constructed the Punta Catalina Power Plant in the Dominican Republic. Within this project, 2 breakwaters were build to protect the cooling water intake structure from hurricane waves.

These breakwaters are protected by around 4,000 Xblocs of 7 and 9 tons. Physical model tests for the breakwaters took place at the Aalborg University in Denmark. Block production and placement finished in 2019.
