Description
Danish engineering company Semco Maritime A/S was in spring 2015 awarded a contract to build a 7.5 MW turnkey biogas power plant in Patacon, Panama. Aqvila subsequently won the design contract for the reinforced concrete structures.

The power plant is located on a green field site at the Patacon landfill at the outskirts of Panama City, Panama.

The power plant consists of three genset buildings including genset foundations as well as concrete structures for three stacks, containers, generators, transformers, gas filters and other minor equipment. 

Aqvila’s services included the detailed design of all reinforced concrete sub structures including preparation of bar-bending schedules.

All structures was designed for seismic actions.

Due to the coming rainy season the tight time schedule was the most critical part of the project. All concrete had to be poured before the rainy season why the concrete design time schedule was closely coordinated between Aqvila and the Client.
