Bentofix® X – Lining of a balancing pond – HS2 Attenuation Pond – UK

In Warwickshire, just north of Long Itchington Wood, the preparatory operations for this project include the development of a main compound area with office space and welfare facilities, plus storage areas for materials and equipment, and the tunnel being constructed at Long Itchington will enable HS2 trains to pass directly beneath one of the county’s largest areas of ancient woodland. The area is protected under the Wildlife and Countryside Act, and measures to avoid loss of the woodland were developed in consultation with Natural England.

Bentofix® – Base Lining System in a Pond – Artificial Pond at Xiamen University, Sepang

To recreate a similar environment to the main Siming campus, an 8-acre lake will be constructed at the new campus in Sepang, Malaysia. Combined with the climate situation in Malaysia, it will be challenging to have an artificial lake with a permanent waterhead throughout the year. A solution for a pond lining system is required to contain the water inside the artificial lake and prevent water infiltration into the subsoil.

More than 70 of those are located in West Nusa Tenggara (NTB) Province, giving the highest concentration of dams in the nation. Dam construction peaked in the ‘90s and ‘00s, meaning today, the operation has been running for 20 to 30 years.
