Construct, in the dry and underwater, waterproofing protection systems on all types of hydraulic, civil, underground and environment protection structures, using synthetic watertight geomembranes.
Who we are
Carpi, established in 1963 has celebrated 50 years in business and is the oldest company in the world dealing with synthetic geomembranes for hydraulic structures. Carpi has the longest and largest record in the world for geomembranes installations in hydraulic structures, with geomembranes systems on 135+ large dams, 50+ canals and hydraulic tunnels, 30+ reservoirs. Carpi holds all world records for installation of geomembranes systems on high dams: A tailings dam under construction in South America, currently reaching 120 m height, is the highest rockfill dam with a geomembrane as only waterproofing element, Miel I RCC dam, 188 m, Alpe Gera concrete gravity dam, 174 m, Lost Creek arch dam, first underwater installation of a geomembrane system on a dam.
Carpi geomembranes and geomembranes systems have been validated among others by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Hydro Québec, and ICOLD, the International Commission on Large Dams.
Carpi has experience both as main contractor managing the entire project and as specialist sub-contractor.
Carpi’s typical customers are owners and consulting engineers who require investigation and advice to correct leakage or infiltration problems.
In 50 years of activity Carpi has completed projects worldwide, in environments ranging from mountainous regions and northern countries to equatorial, tropical and desert regions, from the Alps to the Equator.
