2,400 bored piles were driven into the ground and covered with 35,000 m³ of concrete for the foundations of the combined heat and power plant.

Walls and columns for the furnace were formed with PASCHAL’s LOGO formwork system. The formed concrete section is 8.10 m high. Access to height was with the aid of a Genie Z45 access platform.

The structural components for the furnace, silos, stair towers and connecting ways are made of reinforced concrete. The upper part of the building will primarily be made of steel to give an effect of 'lightness'.

The volumes of the required materials will be determined, based on BIM model data and will be coordinated and monitored during construction.

PASCHAL Danmark A/S has been working on the entire formwork drawings for each construction phase in close cooperation with the building contractor NCC. According to estimations from Helle Søbroe, project engineer at PASCHAL Danmark A/S, there will be 200 plans before completion of the concrete works.

Weekly meetings are held to coordinate the formwork and concrete sections.
