ALBIOMA – TE – ALM3, Guadeloupe harbor dome inflated

After several months of earthworks and piling …

The dome of ALM3 Harbor is inflated, this is a highly visible notch in Guadeloupe energy transition.

With ALM3 power plant fuel conversion this will be ~250GWh of green energy fed annually to the island grid.

Next steps for dome erection are far less visible, they are to take place inside the dome with among all: isolation, rebar installation and shortcrete spray.


Many thanks to ALBIOMA Erection team:
