A major project from the Friuli-based company as part of the construction of the new waste-to-energy plant in the Piedmont capital. Pilosio’s in-house technical design department developed custom made solutions to overcome the most complex building yard challenges

Online PR News Р27-April-2012 РMonday, April 23, 2011 РNot only the supply of materials and equipment made in Friuli, but an in-house design department committed to the design of solutions to resolve the most difficult construction challenges: this is Pilosio’s signature in the project for the construction of the waste-to-energy plant of Turin, managed by the Emilia-based Company Coopsette and currently under construction.

It was a difficult job site since the very beginning, due to the considerable and ever evolving construction challenges. Combined to this there were also the tight deadlines in terms of design and equipment supply. Pilosio’s role consisted in the application of a P300 formworks system for casting walls 40 m high and 55 m long with beams to create all the vertical walls of the waste pit; beams which use allowed implementing 4 meter high walls very quickly. The cart model was used to allow maintaining the P300 panelling constantly in line with the beam system and thus move it as a single block for the subsequent higher stages.

The Friuli-based company supplied contrast beams combined with the P300 frameworks for the casting of all ‚Äúsingle-face‚ÄĚ walls of the waste pit, which, for design reasons, could not be implemented using the ‚Äúdouble-face‚ÄĚ system. With the MP scaffolding by Pilosio applied, it was possible to create approximately ten service stairs with steps in aluminum to access easily the work floors also at the significant height of 40 meters. Thus, the MP system was chosen to support a portion of the floors at a height of 22.50 m thanks to the flexibility of managing several dimensional compositions and due to the need to reach intrados with heights of approximately 25 meters. Thanks to the MP system it was also possible to resolve the issue of supporting significant concentrated loads. Six 11-meter tall towers were manufactured in order to support a concentrated load of approximately 130 tons per tower.

Pilosio’s technical department designed also another custom support structure using the MP system to build contrast struts. The need was to stabilize temporarily a free wall having a height of 17.5 meters up to the point of building the cover that would bind it. The contrast struts fastened on the only free walls of the floor stabilized the 1,000 sq.m wall from a height of over 22.5 meters up to a height of more than 40 meters. Using the T28 Tower system it was possible to support all floors with high capacity, but that had linear and simple dimensional characteristics.
