There already was an operational power plant owned by E.ON near the location of this new plant. The plan was to design a new highly efficient plant in order to reduce waste. The extension of the existing power plant was planned in 2008. The coal power plant started its trial operations in December 2012.
Special Features about the Project
- The emissions from the plant are eco-friendly. It was essential to constantly monitor emissions from the chimney in order to ensure their eco-friendliness. This required access to the emission release point within the chimney.
- The chimney’s vertical structure was built so that its angle changes. Flexible anchoring was chosen due to this structure, the mast was adapted to the bending chimney and the case was mounted in an inclined position.
- Scanclimber's SC400K was chosen for the installation within the chimney. A drive with the velocity of 45m/min was chosen from Scanclimber's components in order to guarantee rapid transport. Scanclimber supplied and installed three-sided landing walls on each upper landing securing the hoist’s carriage up to 250 meters of height.
Beroa Germany, a well-known client, got the responsibility of constructing the chimney and providing the hoist service for this plant.
