cogeneration Hard coal power plant
Grosskraftwerk mannheim (GKm) generates electricity for more than 1. 5 million
residential, commercial, and industrial customers as well as district heat for
more than 100,000 households in mannheim and the rhine-neckar metropolitan
region. A $1.6 billion cogeneration plant will modernize GKm’s power plant
fleet. The 911 megawatt coal-fired electric power generation unit and 500
megawatt district heating unit will reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 1. 3
envi con & plant engineering is the general planning partner, providing
interdisciplinary plant engineering services from preliminary planning through
commissioning. microStation is the platform for project integration, coordinated
IT-based engineering, layout generation, and 2D documentation production for
handover to GKm. Upon completion, the plant will achieve 46 percent electrical
efficiency, compared to the worldwide average of 30 percent.
Kepco engineering & construction company, a global power engineering,
procurement, and construction company, is carrying out design services for the
Jorf lasfar coal-fired power plant in morocco. The plant is located 130 kilometers
southwest of casablanca on the Atlantic coast. The $1 billion project will expand
capacity by 700 megawatts with the addition of two 350-megawatt units.

Kepco used microStation, plantSpace, Structural modeler, and Bentley
navigator for plant design and 3D design review. Data integration at each design
phase facilitated design review and coordination with subcontractors at an early
stage in the project. The 3D design tools allowed visual review and improved
communication among project participants. Using the solutions for interference
checking may result in near error-free construction.
