Incatema initiates transport of the pipes that will make up Cambérène’s marine outfall (in Dakar, Senegal)

17 February, 2022

Incatema has started to load the first sixteen pipes of a total of 500 needed to produce the micro-tunnel for the marine outfall that the company is building in Dakar, Senegal.

The pipes are made in Logroño and are sent by road from the manufacturer’s installations to the Port of Bilbao, where they are loaded on a vessel for transport to the Port of Dakar, in a crossing that lasts from 7 to 10 days.

At present, more than 150 pipes have been manufactured. The forecast is to make regular deliveries, loading two to three days a week, until the operation concludes in the month of May.

Incatema also recently sent by boat the special metal part that is to serve as the transition piece between the pipe made of reinforced concrete situated beneath the sea bed and the pipe made of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) for installation on the sea bed.

The material’s arrival will allow construction to continue without interruption of this basic infrastructure that will contribute to the Senegalese Government’s environmental plan to eliminate pollution from North Dakar.

The quality of the equipment and materials for Cambérène’s new marine outfall has been ratified by a delegation of the National Office of Sanitation of Senegal (ONAS), as we previously reported for you here.
