Offshore Thermal Energy Conversion Plant

Kailua-Kona, Hawaii

BergerABAM's reputation for innovation has made them the first choice of clients who need highly specialized concrete structures. The offshore thermal energy conversion vacuum structure designed by BergerABAM for the Pacific International Center for High Technology Research is one example. Where many designers would have used steel tanks construction in a highly corrosive environment, BergerABAM was able to demonstrate the cost savings and serviceability benefits of reinforced concrete, despite the fact that the structure was required to be completely airtight.

Services Provided by BergerABAM:
