Ducorr has revealed details of a $367,000m (AED1m) contract that it completed on Dubai Water Canal.

While block-wall construction was used for the majority of the waterway’s construction, a small section of the canal features a concrete diaphragm wall.

Under the terms of the deal, the Sharjah-headquartered company provided corrosion protection for reinforcing steel within the diaphragm wall.

The project specification required the implementation of a cathodic protection system, which was designed and installed by Ducorr.

Commenting on the project, Hassan Sheikh, Ducorr’s managing director, said: “This project was most definitely one of the most technically challenging [that we have conducted,] and had a very tight programme.

“Our approach to design [the system] differently to allow for fast and easy deployment was a critical element in the project’s success. We owe our success to our customer, Six Construct, and the asset owner for making the project possible – and the city of Dubai,” Sheikh told Construction Week..

Ducorr began its package of work on Dubai Water Canal in October 2015.

The contract was completed in March 2017.
