At MBRAM City, District One, in Dubai, UAE, site contractors chose to purchase (2) sets of AquaDams to provide temporary lagoon channel isolation. This pictorial will focus on the first installation of the "Set A" AquaDams. Each Set consists of (1) 16'x300' long unit, (2) 12'x150' long units, (1) 4'x300' long unit, and 12 mil thick poly cover tarps for UV protection. MBRAM City District One, Dubai UAE, August 2016
The Set A AquaDams were shipped from California to Dubai by ocean freight, inside 40ft containers. Once on site, the dams were covered with the orange sheeting for UV protection. This sheeting was mostly useless, degrading quickly. MBRAM City District One, Dubai UAE, August 2016
The excavators provided were not big enough to lift the rolled 16ft AquaDam. MBRAM City District One, Dubai UAE, August 2016
They tried using a single crane, but that was also not enough. MBRAM City District One, Dubai UAE, August 2016
So, TWO cranes were used to lift the dam onto the trailer, which will transport the dam to the installation site. Once there, equipment will be used to move the dam from the trailer to the top of the installation berm. MBRAM City District One, Dubai UAE, August 2016

The dam is now situated nicely at the top of the berm. It's very important to make sure the dam is facing the right way, so that it unrolls down the bank when you push on it. MBRAM City District One, Dubai UAE, August 2016
