The Dhauliganga Dam is located in the state of Uttarakhand at the border between India, Nepal and China of the Indian Himalayas . The dam is 56 m high. The crown length of the dam is 270 m.
For the sealing of the alluvia on which the 56 m high concrete-face rockfill dam is founded, a deep diaphragm plastic concrete cut-off wall had to be constructed. The head of the cut-off wall is connected to the dam face by an articulated plinth of unusual design. For the execution of this cut-off wall, Bauer has mobilized on site one cutter, one grab and one chisel units.
