Customer: OMV Raffinerie Schwechat
Construction period: 06.2007 – 09.2009
Location: Raffinerie Schwechat, Lower Austria
ALPINE performed the extensive concreting construction of the TGU (Thermal Gasoil Unit) refinery in Vienna Schwechat as well as the external installations. The entire facility was essentially constructed by way of a pipe bridge with air cooler framework, a preceding equipment framework, a HRD (Heat Recovery Unit) with gas turbine, a compressor as well as a switchgear building and an off-site pipe bridge.
Permanently elastic, hydrocarbon-resistant sealants were specified to seal grooves as well as penetrations of any hardstanding.
The support structure of the equipment framework and of the pipe bridge with air cooler framework was mainly constructed using the reinforced-concrete skeleton-
construction method and using precast concrete members.
Overall dimensions of equipment framework: ca. 90 x 10 m
Pipe bridge: ca. 70 x 9.5 m
Overall height support structure: ca. 25 m
Concrete foundations: C25/30
Concrete hardstanding: 6,660 m²
