What is unique or complex about the project?

We were very exited to do this project , because of the social impact that it´s was going to have in the community .
One of the most important points , that sets apart this project from other we did in the past , it´s that it was the first time we ever did a "Cone" structure . it was a challenges even at the time we have to installed .
The other challenge , was the complex engineering we have to design for the foundations of the projects , because it was next to the shore , and have to resist the extreme weather conditions of the Gulf of Mexico .
