Turbine Hall building – Thailand 600MW Lignite Power Plant

Our Engineering Services team had an active participation, as a partner of SETEC – Energie Environnement (Lyon, France), to the execution design studies of the Turbine Hall building of the power plant (currently constructed).

This steel building with a ground surface of 3500m2 for 34m height, is the shelter of some very important equipment for the power plant.

CCS had at first involved as a technical consultant for SETEC in his task to design the structure according to the American standard AISC, taking to account that the plant has to be constructed to a highly seismic area. In addition CCS has been charged with the design and verification of all the connexions of the building as well as the full structural design of numerous secondary structures included in the interior of the main building.

The project was is carried out by incorporating the BIM approach (Building Information Modeling) between all participants, which is essential for such complex operations in order to manage in the preliminary stage all possible conflicts between structural components, critical equipments and the very dense cable network in the building’s interior.
