Project: Dam repairs, Slovakia
Designer: Ministry of Energy, Government of Slovakia.
Gemite product: Adi-Con CSF (R)
Objective: repair deteriorated concrete in channels connecting lock chambers of the largest dam on Danube River – Gabcikovo. The losses of concrete sections, up to 50 cm deep, were caused by caviation, due to high speed and large volumes of water flow. Adi-Con CSF(R) concrete was used in the repair in 1998. The inspections show a considerably better resistance of Adi-Con CSF(R) concrete to cavitation, when compared with original concrete.
