Divers set barriers to prevent waste at Doha station
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.
