Masterpak, polyethylene (PE) film manufacturer in Zouk Mosbeh, Lebanon, successfully completes geoliner installation at Ain El Naanaa hill irrigation lake in Lebanon.
Masterpak installed geomembrane liners at a large irrigation lake covering 9,500 m2 on Ain El Naanaa hill in Aynata – Bekaa, Lebanon. The impermeable geoliner preserves and contains water, aiming to supply surrounding agricultural lands with irrigation water throughout the year.

Working under windy weather conditions, Masterpak’s specialized team completed the project within 9 days, from 14 to 23 September 2012. Bachir Awwad, Masterpak Market Geoliners Manager, stated, “We faced windy weather which delayed the installation works for 3 days. It was a large project that took hard team-work to successfully install.”
