1470MW Run of river Power Plant Luang Prabang - Mekong River Client: Ch Karnchang Lao Company Limited
Scope of Work:
BauCon ZT GmbH was awarded as the EPC Contractors Civil Design Engineer for the 1470MW Luang Prabang run off river Hydro Electric Power Plant. Luang Prabang HEPP is located along the Mekong mainstream approximately 25km upstream of Luang Prabang in Lao PDR.
BauCon ZT GmbH was contracted by the EPC Contractor Ch. Karnchang Lao Ltd. to develop the civil design of the power plant. With a nominal capacity of 1470 MW, the Luang Prabang run-of-river hydropower plant will have an annual output of about 6,500 GWh and will provide renewable energy to the electricity network of the Kingdom of Thailand.
Luang Prabang Power Plant consists of a Main Powerhouse with 7 fish friendly and oil free Kaplan turbines, an Auxiliary Powerhouse with 3 smaller Units, an RCC Dam, Navigation Lock, and Spilling Structures to cope with the high floods of Mekong River. The Project is executed as a BIM project.
Luang Prabang HEPP will form a mile stone in the future navigability of Mekong River. Extensive effort is done to develop and further improve the fish passing concept at an outstanding high ecological quality. Detailed information can be found on the webpage of Mekong River Commission.
Limberg III Pumped storage power plant of VERBUND Hydro Power GmbH
Underground power plant between the two existing storage lakes as an extension of the Glockner - Kaprun power plant group. The newly constructed structural, mechanical and electrical power plant facilities are arranged in a cavern, gallery and structure system.
As a member of the engineering consortium PSW Limberg III, Baucon has been entrusted with the implementation planning.
Hagleitner Academy New construction of chemical-technical production and training/development centre
As an extension of the existing location in Zell am See, Hagleitner Hygiene International GmbH created its own "Hagleitner Academy".
The structural engineering work carried out by Baucon ZT GmbH required special expertise due to the difficult foundation conditions on the one hand and the high masses of the production machines on the other.
With approx. 930 t of structural steel and 8,500 m³ of concrete, this "heavyweight" project could be realised.
Dam Großer Mühldorfer See Power plant group Reisseck - Kreuzeck, Kärnten, Airside maintenance
For the maintenance measures
- Replacement of the precast slabs on the air side of the barrier with a facing shell
- Adaptation of the floodwater drain
Baucon is responsible for the static preliminary design and preparation of the tender plans.
The Töging hydro power plant is a run off river hydro power plant of the Austrian Verbund AG. (118 MW)
The power plant is located on the Inn Canal near Töging am Inn/Germany.
The state-of-the-art chipboard plant with coating, capacities is scheduled to go into operation by the end of 2020. This first project phase involves an investment volume of around 260 Million USD and will create 400 jobs within the next six years.
Mellach / Austria: Foundation structure for gas and steam turbine 838 MW in single shaft version, static and dynamic calculation as well as formwork and reinforcement drawings.
Foundation structure for steam turbine 438 MW in multi shaft version, static and dynamic calculation as well as creation of formwork and reinforcement drawings.
Novo Tempo / Brazil:
Foundation structure for gas and steam turbines approx. 1200 MW in single version, static and dynamic calculation as well as creation of formwork and reinforcement drawings.
YARA Environmental Technologies GmbH was commissioned to design a flue gas cleaing unit for the QAFCO plant.
The task of the structural design was given to BauCon ZT GmbH.
Main part of the construction is the so called catalyst-box. Inside this structure there are different baffle and guide plates to control the flue gas flow. Also inside there is a supporting structure for the catalyst elements.
The pump storage hydro power plant with an investment sum of 365 million euros has been constructed completely under ground. It was one of the biggest power plant construction sites in Europe.
About 70,000 m³ of excavated material accumulated when excavating the two caverns. The turbine hall cavern is 62 m long, 25 m wide and 43 m high - the size of the nave of St. Stephens Cathedral.
Some component dimensions:
Floor plate thickness up to 1.50 m
Lower generator ceiling: ceiling thickness 2.00 m
Upper generator ceiling: prestressed ceiling 1.50 m thick
Our design was ordered by Pöyry Energy GmbH
Structural design of complex structural frameworks in the Romanian earthquake zone
More than 80,000 m² of hall area, approx. € 45 million in construction costs, approx. € 200 million in overall investments - ongoing upgrades
The steel platforms in the machine hall and the ULA building were designed by us.
The foundation for the turbines was also calculated statically and dynamically by BauCon, and we drew up all construction drawings.
The reinforced concrete frame is 51 meters long, 14 meters wide and 15 meters high and set on in situ piles.
