Aswan River Project: 1984

The Aswan II River Flood Control Dam, located on the Nile River near Aswan, Egypt, was a modern reconstruction project approved by the Arab Republic of Egypt Ministry of Electricity and the Qattara Hydroelectric and Renewable Energy Resource Projects Authority. REO was proud to be a part of this massive, historic project which provided a major energy supply for Egypt's modernization needs.

Thick, sand-layered granite formations were blasted out of the river bed to provide new water control and direction. Accurate electric millisecond delay blasting caps, in conjunction with the REO BM-175-10ST, provided strict safety and vibration control for daily production blasting adjacent to the historic Aswan II Dam. A Research Energy engineering team went directly from the U.S.A. to Aswan to assist and train French and Egyptian blasting crews in the use of the BM175-10ST and associated modern blasting techniques. Drilling and blasting engineering and execution was provided by AGAT, Cairo, a joint venture of Grand Travaux's De Marseille (GTM) of France.
