PROTECTION OF THE MARINE PLATFORM AT THE KOUDIET COMBINED CYCLE POWER STATION (ALGERIA)

BREAKWATERS

  • Start Date / End Date: 2008/2011
  • Place: KOUDIET, (ARGELIA)
  • Scope: Construction Project writing and technical consulting
  • Description:

    The Construction Project for the Koudiet combined cycle power station seawater intake pipelines included the design of the Koudiet marine platform protection.
    The studies completed covered:

    • A calculation of the protective rock: A calculation using the Hudson and Van der Meer formula.
    • A calculation of the anti-erosion rock at the foot of the breakwater
    • The platform crest elevation
    • The adaptation of the sections available to the existing material.
    • An overflow study.
    • The definition of the provisional breakwater to install the land pipelines.
    • A rock sampling procedure after the execution of the breakwater
    • The calculation of the platform guard wall against overflow
    • The design of the road over the breakwater


    The stability, overflow and erosion calculations and designs were verified by means of small-scale tests and by means of a numerical modelling of the dynamic wave filtration through the breakwater.  All of this was done with technical advice from INCREA
