korea District heating Co., Ltd
paju combined Heat and power plant
Seongnam-si, South korea
The $70 million paju combined Heat and power plant will supply district heating
water and electricity to approximately 57,000 apartments in paju city, located
northwest of the capital city of Seoul. The 515 megawatt power plant was
commissioned by the Korea District Heating co. and has a district heating
capacity of 553 gram calories per hour.
Korea District Heating used microStation, project Wise, plantSpace, Structural
modeler, and Bentley navigator to develop a quality design in consultation
with design team members, partners, and the owner. Sharing of the latest
information and visual design reviews facilitated collaboration. The solutions
significantly reduced rework by enabling interference reviews, which shortened
the entire construction period by three weeks.
North-west Engineering Company
Mendeleevskaya geothermal power station
As part of a multimillion-dollar investment in infrastructure on the Kuril Islands,
russia is building a geothermal power plant on Kunashir Island. north-West
engineering company was contracted to design the geothermal power station
to supply heat and electric power to the city of Yuzhno-Kuril’sk. The $26 million
power station will improve the economic potential of the region without
detriment to the environment.
The project team used Autopl An T for AutocAD to create a multidisciplinary
work environment. Integrated 3D models were reviewed for errors and clashes.
The creation of 3D models reduced design time by one month and reduced the
cost of design by $25,000. Upon completion of the plant, the naturally recurring
geothermal energy will provide a clean, renewable resource.
