Project description

Plasticon Composites designed ,supplied and installed 400 covers for the concrete drainage canal at the Essent Power Plant in Maasbracht.

All covers are made of GRP, preventing all possible corrosion issues which would occur with other, conventional, materials such as steel. All GRP covers were placed on top of the concrete drain canals. The function of the covers is preventing the growth of algae in the cooling water.
