Slope protection systems are a great way to prevent runoff from entering water bodies, such as lakes. According to Mr. S. K Goyal, Managing Director of Spar Geo Infra (A Geo technical company known for its innovative, excellent and quality services in technology, engineering and construction services), “Slope protection systems stabilize soil on embankments to prevent severe erosion caused by surface runoff. It also absorbs the runoff into designated areas of gravel, large rocks, or soil.”
Spar Geo specializes in performing Slope Protection work at even extreme conditions. A perfect example of such work is the Spar’s Teesta III H.E. Project. Teesta Stage III is the largest Hydro Electrical Project under construction in a Joint Sector of the country with a capacity of 1200 MW on an altitude of 2000m. It is a superb and unique project with a high head of 800m against the short HRT length of 13.3km. The Project components are in North Sikkim with a dam at the Chungthang Village and the Power House site at Singhik. This project was studied and investigated by agencies like CWC/CEA, GSI, NHPC, and TUL.
