Punta Catalina, Dominican Republic

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

These breakwaters will be protected by around 4,000 Xblocs of 7 and 9 tons. Physical model tests for the breakwaters are currently ongoing at the Aalborg University in Denmark. Block production and placement will start this summer.
