EPCM assisted Group Five Power International, the EPC contractor on the Kpone Independent Power Plant (KIPP) project in the port of Tema, Ghana, with the offshore installation of the seawater intake’s gravity steel structure.
- Finite Element Modelling of the intake structure stress analyses in air and subsea lift situations;
- Sea-fastening design of various sub-components of the structure for transport from port to offshore location;
- Rigging and lifting points for all the various sub-components of the intake structure (major force lift of 130t);
- Bottom stability (sliding and turnover) calculations to save contractor on backfilling/ballasting requirements for the intake structure.
