SIEMENS – AUSTRALIA (PERTH)
For the Perth waste-to-energy plant, we designed and manufactured eight modular rooms, totalling 650 m2, with a thermoelectric output of 36 MW and a total processing capacity of 400,000 tonnes per year. The project was designed based on Australian standards and was approved and certified by Australian engineers.
The sizes of the two types of rooms were:
6 single rooms: Final size: 20 x 4 x 3.5 m (Length x Width x Height)
2 double rooms: Final size: 14 x 6 x 3.5 m (Length x Width x Height)
All of them were designed under special fire protection requirements, and in order to adapt to local regulations, we had to import some of the materials directly from Australia. In turn, the HVAC system was designed in compliance with MEPS (Minimum Energy Performance Standards). Another particularity of this project is that, prior to the shipping of the rooms, a fumigation treatment required by the country of destination was carried out.
The main equipment used in these rooms include batteries, MCCs, LV Switchgears, chargers, UPS, MV & LV Transformers, protection cabinets…
The rooms were assembled in the workshop and tried and tested, resulting in on-site assembly savings.
