Floating Water Intake
Structure Project

In Mosul Dam IRAQ, we have implemented a floating pump station with the dimensions of 27m x 13.5m and a loading capacity of 120 tons, which is the world's largest water intake unit.

We built over the dam a floating bridge at a length of 450-500 meters, where the water level bilaterally fluctuates within a 42 meter vertical depth. While 50 meter section of the floating bridge moves simultaneously with water (up or down), the remaining 450 meter section of the bridge stays stationary. HDPE pipes are layed over this floating bridge with a width of 4 meters.
