MOSE Project, Foundations

Grandi Lavori Fincosit
Grout Bag Foundation System
2012 – 2014

Flooding in Venice will soon become a thing of the past with the help of MOSE barrage project. This is currently being constructed to the sea inlets of the lagoon.

The project consists of a line of large steel box flap gates positioned across the sea inlets to Venice lagoon. The flap gates are raised by pumping air into them when high sea levels threaten to flood Venice. These are hinge connected to concrete caissons which are founded using Proserve’s automated foundation Grout Bag System at the Malamocco and Lido San Nicolo inlets.
