KPONE THERMAL POWER PLANT. GHANA
SPECIALIZED RAISED ACCESS FLOORS FOR THERMOELECTRIC POWER PLANT
Ghana is a symbol of the emerging new Africa and a leader in terms of stability and democratic consolidation in the region. Ghana’s new status as a producer of gas and oil country is also significant challenges. These features mentioned above make the country a important area for foreign investment and development of large new projects.
Kpone Thermal Power Plant (KTPP) is a public investment project from Ghana´s the Ministry of Energy, under the supervision of the Volta River Authority, in collaboration with German consulting FICNTNER and the local subsidiary of British construction Zakhem. The Power Plant is located in a coastal area, in the city of Kpone near Tema, and will supply power to the national grid supplementing the existing hydro as well as thermoelectric capacity to ensure electricity supply in times of water shortage if there is failure of hydroelectric generation.
Inside the project, the technical rooms and facilities of the Power Plant (KTPP) require a raised access floor system that allows placing a lot of wiring, pipes, voice and data installations. It is also needed a high level of security in terms of fire resistance, high load capacity of the panel. POLYGROUP has been selected as supplier of Raised Access Floor for all technical rooms of the Power Plant. The system installed in this project was POLYGROUP GAMAFLOR PAC system with wood core panels finished with POLYGROUP ANTISTATIC VINYL LIDER.
The product has been manufactured under GAMAFLOR brand quality standards with chipboard core of high density (720 kg/m3) measures 600 x 600 x 35 mm, the bottom protected with a galvanized steel sheet 0.5 mm and top finish with antistatic vinyl heterogeneous of 2.5 mm, this pavement is a high quality vinyl with the greatest abrasion resistance in the market. The panel is supported by a under-structure of high quality steel pedestals formed by stringers and pedestals, that allows height adjustment designed to get the maximum stability of the raised floor.
This project was internationally recognized by the London based PFI Awards as Africa’s most outstanding power deal of 2014.
