Eugeniusz Koper
Project leader

Poland’s largest foundation for turbo generators is part of the new Belchatow power plant block. In cooperation with Budimex-Dromex, PERI worked out a technically sophisticated shoring solution. The PERI systems, in connection with the excellent logistical service, enabled us to carry out the construction work in a short time.

PERI solution

  • shoring solution for 25-80 cm thick slabs and 2.20-3.20 m high beams as well as massive reinforced concrete rings
  • logistics service
  • combination of the shoring systems MULTIPROP, ST 100 and HD 200
  • MP towers set into each other
  • load distribution via girder grids to the beams of the intermediate ceiling
