Nemetschek Structural User Contest 2013

171 X Nemetschek Structural User Contest 2013 - Category 3: Industrial Buildings and Plants 3 Nomination Category 3: Industrial Buildings and Plants EIV sprl Short description │KHI Solar One KHI Solar One is a 50 MW solar power station in South-Africa. It is situated in Upington, in the NorthWest of the country. This is a Concentrated Solar Power facility, with 4,120 heliostats concentrating solar power to the boiler at the top of a 200 m-high tower. The project developer is the Spanish company Abengoa Solar, a subsidiary of Abengoa active in renewable energy. The solar boiler, developed by the Belgian company CMI, will produce high-pressure steam to a turbine to produce electricity. EIV worked on the steel structure of this boiler, composed of two evaporators and one superheater, to calculate and optimise the steel structure and produce all the drawings including workshop drawings. This job also included many access structures and piping supports. The steel weight is 270 tonnes for the casings and 160 tonnes for the access structures and piping supports. All calculations were done with Scia Engineer.
