The Monte Grande Dam, in the southwestern province of Barahona in the Dominican Republic, is an important infrastructure project for the country. In addition to controlling water levels in the Yaque del Sur River, the 55 meter tall dam will also be used for flood protection and generation of hydroelectric energy. Other aspects include tourism and the use of dammed water for irrigation of agricultural land.

BAUER Fundaciones Dominicana SRL, the Dominican subsidiary of BAUER Spezialtiefbau GmbH, was commissioned to build a cut-off wall to seal off the dam base. Works started in May 2019 and were successfully completed in May 2020. In total, Bauer constructed around 26,000 square meters of cut-off wall over a length of 1,350 meters, down to an average depth of 23 meters and with a thickness of 800 mm underneath the dam base. Bauer Dominicana used a BAUER MC 96 duty-cycle crane with a BAUER BC 40 cutter as well as a BE 500 separation plant from BAUER MAT Slurry Handling Systems for the construction. Worth noting: This project was the first time that a trench cutter had ever been used in the Dominican Republic, and it was also the first time that Bauer Dominicana has been part of a dam construction project.
