Power Plant Kozienice

Structural planning of the new construction unit 11

The hard coal-fired power plant at the Kozienice site in Poland is being extended by a new power plant unit yielding 1,075 MW with the construction of ”Kozienice 11”. It will be the largest power plant unit in Europe fired with hard coal, and the most state-of-the-art one worldwide with an efficiency degree of more than 45% after completion.

ZPP was commissioned by Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Europe GmbH as successor to Hitachi Power Systems Europe GmbH to carry out the new construction of unit 11 by drawing up the static calculation of the steel structure for the boiler house hopper system. We handled the specialist planning in section 1 - structural planning for the service phases 3 and 4 (draft planning and approval planning) according to HOAI (Official Scale of Fees for Services by Architects and Engineers).

Another element of the work commissioned included an expert opinion concerning the load from wind pressure applied to the boiler house supporting frame structure. Relevant observations to wind stress and the interaction with other buildings were made; the differences of wind stress applied to facades to be considered and the influences due to the closeness of the high cooling tower structure were shown. Against this background, data concerning the wind pressure on the facades was created.
