The use of Maccaferri Gabion and Mattress as an alternative for concrete structures in Ciawi Dam


As part of the dam construction, there was an existing river flow that needs to be diverted. The original design used heavy galvanizing as the coating of the wire mesh or concrete structure as the alternative. Maccaferri proposed the use of Gabions and Mattresses with PVC coating as a protection against river flow, abrasion, and UV exposure.
