Filbornaverket “Combined Heat & Power” Plant
The Filbornaverket facility is a modern waste-fired “Combined Heat & Power” (CHP) that utilizes combustible household and commercial waste to produce electricity and district heating. The CHP technology produces steam, heat and electricity to provide 18 megawatts of electricity and 60 megawatts of district heating; this is equivalent to the annual energy requirements for about 6,000 family homes.
PENETRON ADMIX was used to treat approximately 1,400 m2 (15,070 square feet) of the bottom shaft and walls (14 meters/46 feet deep) and another 17,000 m2 (182,987 square feet) for the intake shaft, all in the below-grade foundation of the facility. The treated concrete is now waterproof and resistant against various aggressive compounds found in the waste contents. The finished concrete structure is 155 meters (510 feet) long and 50 meters (164 feet) high.
