Company Information

Schrobenhausen / Odessa (Florida) (euro adhoc) - BAUER Foundation Corp., the local subsidiary of the BAUER Group, has been commissioned to carry out a further section of the rehabilitation of the Herbert Hoover Dike around Lake Okeechobee in Florida. The contract has a volume of about 40 million US dollars. It is estimated that the work needed will take approximately one and a half years.

The BAUER Group has been involved in the rehabilitation of the dike for about two years. The cutoff wall has already been rebuilt in several sections by the local Bauer subsidiary. It prevents the dike from internal erosion caused by seepage. The dike encloses the largest freshwater lake in Florida. The cutter soil mixing technique, which was developed by Bauer and has previously been successfully employed, will again be used in the forthcoming section.

"The award of this follow-up contract confirms our view about the opportunities arising for the BAUER Group from large-scale projects," says Prof. Thomas Bauer, Chairman of the Management Board of BAUER Aktiengesellschaft. "Many infrastructure projects around the world cannot be put off any longer, and must be tackled now, despite the economic crisis - with or without the support of economical stimulus programs."
