Rosatom introduced the new method of cooling tower concreting at Kursk NPP-2

Kursk, April 28 - Neftegaz.RU. Specialists of Kursk Branch of SMU №1 (part of Rosatom Engineering Division) are carrying out concreting works at a record speed for this type of work - one 1.5 m high layer in less than 3 days.

These works are carried out at Unit 1 evaporation cooling tower of Kursk NPP-2 (general designer and general contractor - Rosatom).
Initially, the concreting works lasted for at least 7 days.

Currently, the specialists of SMU №1 have completed the concreting of layer 65 of the cooling tower, which will in total comprise 115 layers and will be 179 m high.
Valery Dmitriev, Director of Kursk Branch of SMU №1, pointed out:
  • The consistent process of lifting of the form work, reinforcement and pouring of concrete, continuous and precise cycle of the works made it possible to reach an unprecedented speed of concreting, although the works were carried out at a considerable height
The experience of Kursk NPP-2 is already in demand during the construction of cooling towers at Rooppur NPP in Bangladesh, where the Engineering Division is also the general designer and the general contractor.

At that site, the cooling towers are being constructed by Indian company Paharpur.
Earlier, it took the Indian contractor about 12 days to complete the concreting of 1 layer, but the RPS project implemented by specialists of SMU №1 helped the Indian colleagues to reduce the time up to 4 days.
