GREAT YARMOUTH POWER STATION: SOUTH DENES
Great Yarmouth, in South Denes, is one of a new generation of highly efficient, gas–burning power stations, with the capacity to generate 400MW of electricity.The station was commissioned in 2002 and is one of the UK’s most modern stations, powered by natural gas using the latest generating technology – combined cycle gas turbines (CCGT).
We worked as structural engineers for Bechtel– named Top U.S. Contractor of 2016, providing all design drawings for the complete steel structure. Due to the client requirements, we had to work to American Institute of Steel Construction’s LRFD (Load &Resistance Factor Design) standards. We wrote our own design software to check the British Standard steel sections to the American Code.
JSW Severfield Structures Ltd. were the steel fabricators for the structure to whom we provided manufacturing steel drawings for all structural elements, including fixings, claddings, doors and louvres for the erection of 1,270 tonnes of structural steelwork.
Your contribution on the project is very highly appreciated and you are showing high competence in you domain.
