Divers set bar­ri­ers to pre­vent waste at Doha sta­tion

Kuwait Times - - Local -

KUWAIT: Kuwait Dive Team set new bar­ri­ers to pro­tect the wa­ters of Western Doha power sta­tion from sea waste and plank­ton which could af­fect the safety and per­for­mance of the sta­tion. The pre­vi­ous wa­ter bar­ri­ers were dam­aged, al­low­ing dif­fer­ent sea waste to en­ter and get trapped at the sta­tion’s wa­ters, mak­ing it very dif­fi­cult for work­ers to re­move them to re­sume the wa­ters’ per­for­mance, team leader Waleed Al-Fad­hel said yes­ter­day. The team had set the bar­ri­ers at two me­ters deep un­der the wa­ter, with a strat­egy that will not af­fect the wa­ter cur­rent for nearby fish, tur­tles and other sea crea­tures, he noted. The bar­ri­ers’ set­ting and fix­ing took three months, said Fad­hel, adding that the team lifted two tons of wooden and plas­tic waste as well as fish­ing nets dur­ing the process.
