Dubai Electricity and Water Authority has completed building the water reservoir at Al Lusaily. The reservoir has a capacity of 450 million litres of desalinated water to improve and extend the city’s fresh water supply.
For MEVA KHK, it proved yet another succesful large-scale water project. The engineering team provided Ghantoot Contracting with design and formwork inventory for the columns, tank and baffle walls. Very fast pours to heights above 5 m were achieved with the heavy-duty formwork system Mammut 350 and its 100 kN/m² load capacity.
The next challenge was pouring hundreds of columns with large mushroom- shaped column heads. MEVA engineers developed, designed and produced special L-shape steels units in two heights to handle all the pours easily and fast. The solution proved cost-effective and contributed to a zero hitch workflow.

MEVA fulfils stringent requirements with flexible formwork solutions. The Budapest Zoo & Botanical Garden is one of the Hungary’s most popular cultural attractions.
MEVA STB 450 offers flexible solution for narrow, inclined rail section: Near the municipality of Gretzenbach, the four-track route branches into two separate lines. Here, the two southern tracks gradually descend and pass below the cantonal road before entering the new Eppenberg Tunnel.
