ACES Khobar has recently completed the geotechnical investigation and topographic survey for the Solar Energy Parks Projects.
The project will involve the construction of photovoltaic (PV) solar power plants in four different locations (Wadi Ad Dawasir, Layla, Ar Ras, and Saad) with a footprint area varying from 2,000 m2 to 58,000 m2.
ACES scope of work in this project included drilling of 132 boreholes, excavating of test pits, performing several onsite tests such as; cross-hole, seismic refraction tests, soil electrical resistivity tests and thermal resistivity tests. Also, ACES conducted the topographic survey for each site performed intensive laboratory tests and prepared interpretative geotechnical and topographic reports for each site.
The client of the project is the renewable energy project development office (REPDO).
