Danish engineering company Burmeister & Wain Scandinavian Contractor A/S (BWSC) was in spring 2015 awarded the turnkey contract to build a 40 MW biomass power plant in Tilbury, England. The power plant is located on a former industrial site directly at the river Thames near London. When in operation, the plant will be powered by approx. 285,000 tonnes of waste wood each year and will help reduce the waste in the city of London.
Aqvila was by BWSC awarded two sub-contracts; One sub-contract for the engineering and design of civil and building works, the other for design and supply of the platforms and the support structures for M&E equipment and installations including normal pipes and high pressure steam pipes located inside the Turbine building. Aqvila’s scope of work for the civil and building sub-contract included detailed design of all reinforced concrete sub and superstructures including pile plans, 3D modelling of the structures and preparation of bar-bending schedules as well as detailed design of steel superstructures, secondary steel structures and cladding supports including 3D modelling of the structures. Aqvila’s scope of works for the design of the secondary platforms and support structures included detailed design of the structures, connections, ladders, stairs, guardrails and gratings, 3D modelling and preparation of workshop drawings and were performed parallel to BWSC’s M&E design of the equipment and installations.
