The Hamriyah Independent Power Project in the United Arab Emirates consisted of three electrical rooms totalling 500 m2 for an independent combined cycle power plant with a total capacity of 1.8 GW.
The project consisted of 3 electrical rooms:
A BOP room consisting of the assembly of 9 rooms. Final size: 33 x 12 x 4 m (Length x Width x Height)
A BSDG room consisting of the assembly of 2 rooms. Final size: 18 x 3.8 x 4 m (Length x Width x Height)
A single DFO room. Final size: 8 x 2.2 x 4 m (Length x Width x Height)
One of the peculiarities of the project was its composite floor slab, on which a raised floor was installed. But perhaps the biggest challenge was to design these large rooms so that the solution could be transported by road and sea. To achieve this, we divided the rooms into several modules which were assembled on site quickly and efficiently.
The rooms had been assembled in the workshop and tried and tested, resulting in on-site assembly savings. In addition, they have a surface treatment capable of withstanding extremely adverse weather conditions.
The plan was for our technicians to be present on site to supervise the assembly, but due to COVID restrictions, supervision was carried out remotely by our experts.
The equipment integrated into this room include batteries, MCCs, LV Switchgear, rectifiers, UPS… In addition to the fire protection system and air conditioning.
