Schrobenhausen (euro adhoc) - In February 2012 the Free State of Bavaria
contracted BAUER Spezialtiefbau GmbH, a company of the BAUER Group, to install a
cut-off wall down to a depth of 70 metres as part of modernization work on the
Sylvenstein Dam. Chairman of the Management Board of BAUER AG Professor Thomas
Bauer comments: "We have successfully carried out numerous dam remediation and
strengthening projects all over the world. We are very pleased now to be
contributing our expertise and equipment resources to what is currently one of
the largest flood protection projects in southern Germany."

Sylvenstein reservoir, with a water capacity of up to 125 million cubic metres,
is the oldest reservoir in Bavaria, and is the state's most important dam in
terms of flood protection. The dam core was first strengthened back in the
1980s. In the 1990s it was raised higher - a project in which Bauer was also
involved. After over 50 years in service, the first phase of the most recent
strengthening project on the Sylvenstein Dam was began in summer 2011, including
work to widen the dam top several metres for the necessary equipment to be put
in place.

In May 2012 BAUER Spezialtiefbau GmbH will start the most extensive phase of
the project: installing a total of 10,000 square metres of soilcrete diaphragm
wall to seal the dam core, stretching along a length of 170 metres and extending
as much as 25 metres beneath the dam into the former bed of the River Isar. The
work, which is scheduled for completion in November 2012, will be carried out by
a BC 40 cutter unit mounted on a MC 128 base carrier as well as two MC 64
foundation cranes for grab excavation and concreting. The contract is worth
around EUR 11.5 million.
