Engineering services for power plant boiler building in England
AFRY delivered the basic and detail engineering for the boiler building of a renewable energy power plant in Teesside, England.
The assignment was carried out in 2016-2018.
AFRY’s client was Sumitomo SHI FW (formerly Amec Foster Wheeler), who delivered the power plant’s boiler building with its auxiliary facilities. A total of about 5,000 tons of steel structures were designed for the site.
“The engineering schedule for the project was very tight and at most the steel structures of the site were detailed for production of more than 1,000 tons per month. The client's device model was used as reference data in the engineering work”, says Juha Vehkamäki, Project Manager at AFRY. According to Juha, the coordination of steel structure engineering and device model was an ongoing process in which reference models were updated daily.
The annual production of the Tees power plant is 2.3 TWh of low-carbon electricity for about 600,000 households and heat for nearby customers. The plant is owned by MGT Teesside Ltd.
