BAM Infraconsult: First Xbloc Project in India

BAM Infraconsult bv has signed a license agreement with Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone for the application of Xbloc breakwater armour units in the Mundra LNG project.

The LNG import terminal will be built on a reclaimed land, located in the Gulf of Kutch in the Northwestern Indian state Gujarat, which will be protected from severe cyclone waves by an Xbloc shore protection. Construction of the shore protection will start after completion of physical model tests which are currently ongoing.

Production and placement of the Xblocs will start later this year and will continue in 2016. This will be the first Xbloc application in India.

Xbloc is an innovative and patented concrete armour unit which has been developed by BAM for shore protection and breakwaters and has successfully been applied on various locations around the world since 2004.
