Portucel Cogeneration Plant

- The project consisted in the installation of a cogeneration plant at the Portucel paper mill, in order to reduce the energy dependence of the paper mill. This plant is composed of two turbo gas generator sets and a steam turbine. Excess steam from this process is used in the production of paper in the factory. The turbo generator sets consist of turbines, with respective steam generating boilers and 62 m high chimneys for the emission of exhaust gases. In addition to this equipment, the plant also has a water treatment unit and electric transformers.

- Coordination, management and development of all project phases from design to execution, in particular: Building foundations and structures, equipment and plant infrastructure. Construction works were monitored in order to guarantee a proper construction quality.
