Europa Prefabri portable offices at the Cofrentes Nuclear Power Plant

Last September we have manufactured and assembled 91 portable offices in two floors with 36 stairways for Iberdrola at the Cofrentes Nuclear Power Plant.

Cofrentes Nuclear Power Plant

Being operational for 33 years, the Cofrentes Nuclear Power Plant is the main centre of electrical production in the Region of Valencia. During 2016, the nuclear plant generated 9.540 millions of kWh, which represents close to 3.6% of the national electrical production. This production fulfils the 37% of the annual electrical demand of the Region of Valencia. Likewise, with 1092.02 Mw, Cofrentes is the Spanish nuclear power plant with greatest installed electric power.

Project: portable offices for the Cofrentes Nuclear Power Plant

plano de distribucion de los modulos prefabricados en la central nuclear de cofrentes

The project consists of temporary transferring the offices of the Nuclear power plant for the scheduled stoppage that will take place in September 2017.

The prefabricated modules serve as support for both the personnel staff of the Iberdrola Nuclear Power Plant and its different suppliers who are going to work at the plant stoppage. Among them, there are companies with high technical level; such as Ge-Power, Tecnaton, Ge-Hitachi, ABB, Siemens, Duro Felguera, Cegelec, Empresarios Agrupados, Areva…

  • Between the portable offices modules, there are two break rooms and the toilets for the different companies.
  • In addition, a portable office module conceived as a bar that is used as catering.
  • We have made all the assemblage with our own means: truck cranes, aerial work platforms and our own workforce.
  • All the prefabricated modules have air conditioning systems type Split 3000 BTU/hr.
  • Likewise, all the modules are provided with complete installation of voice and data.
  • We will also supply furnished offices for the different suppliers and companies that will work at the stop.

This is therefore one more challenge in our trajectory as it is a highly complex work in highly complex ambiance. We appreciate the trust placed in Europa Prefabri.

Why is there a shutdown in Cofrentes nuclear power station?

portable offices

The Cofrentes Nuclear Power Plant makes a biannual shutdown to recharge the fuel and replace part of it in order to guarantee its future operation.

Likewise, fuel-refuelling shutdowns are a good occasion for carrying out multiple maintenance works and equipment reviewing that cannot be inspected when the power station is active; as well as design modifications aimed at the technological optimisation of plant equipment and components.

Each recharge must be studied and planned in detail.  This way, its duration, the number of activities to be carried out, and the hiring of technical staff necessary for the execution of the works can be foreseen.

 

Prefabricated modular dressing room at Alicante

We have designed, transported and assembled a new prefabricated modular dressing room building for a football field at Alicante, in a 47m2 surface. This dressing room building complements the football team facilities, meeting their needs.

This prefabricated modular dressing room building is composed by the side union of four prefabricated modules. Moreover, the prefabricated modular dressing room are divided in to twin rooms with independent entrances, one for the local team and another one for the visitors’ team. The two parts are composed of two modules, one of them of 4000 x 2350 that has an entrance door to the dressing room and another one of 6000 x 2350, which has:

  • Electrical water heater of 200 litres with mixer.
  • 4 independent shower trays with curtains, sprinklers and push buttons.
  • Two WCs
  • Two sinks with mirror, pedestal and push button
  • Sanitation outlets through frame.

The rest of the space is diaphanous; in order to set benches to equip the dressing room, also with lockers and other required furniture.

 

Technical features of the Project: prefabricated modular dressing room building for a football field at Alicante

prefabricated modular dressing room

Base structure

The floor structure is formed by galvanized profiles, shaped in cold. Transversally, OMEGA straps of galvanized sheet shaped in cold are placed. The entire floor supports loads of 250 kg/m2 using, uniformly distributed.

The straps support an 18mm thickness special water resistant fenolic plywood.

Roof structure:

As the floor structure, the roof structure is formed by two longitudinal beams, and two transversally of same section, shaped in cold in galvanized sheet. The roof structure supports a trapezoidal sheet.

The evacuation of pluvial water is realised thanks to two PVC gutters, integrated in the shorts beams of the roof.

Columns:

The columns are formed by cold-galvanized sheet profiles. These columns are screwed to the floor and the roof by special screws. By the interior of the column is fixed the soil pipe formed by a round PVC tube. The end of the columns inside the module is finished by a lacquered sheet that can be used in order to fasten the electrical mechanisms, sockets, switches and electric protection frame.

Lateral closure:   The lateral closure is made of sandwich panels that will be composed by a pre-lacquered galvanised steel sheet on a both-sided galvanised base and with thermal and acoustic isolation.

False ceiling:

The false ceiling is formed by galvanized metallic sheets, pre-lacquered in white silicon polyester. In between the false ceiling and the roof plaque, an insulating plate of fibreglass with vapour barrier is placed. The internal height of the module is 2.275m.

External carpentry:

The carpentry is made of PVC and/or white lacquered aluminum profiles. This carpentry counts on the following elements:

  • For internal doors.
  • A WC door with handle and locker

Electrical instalation:

It is considered finished except for the power line up to the module’s location.

All the electrical connections and their facilities are adapted to the low tension regulation. At the inlet of the connection, a protection and control panel with independent magneto-thermal protections and the needed differentials for illumination, urgency light (in its case), acclimatization and different uses will be assembled.  It will also count with protection elements for direct contacts, over loadings and short-circuits.

This electrical installation is composed of:

  • Six watertight lights with surface diffuser
  • Six units of power points
  • Not included switches, as the lights must be turne don with the external control panel. Each electrical wáter heater has its’ own switch.

Sanitary installation:

The sanitary installation is considered complete (with the exception of water arrival to the module, and the drainage of waste water to the septic tank, which will be for the customer account). The sanitary material will be of white colour, ROCA brand or similar.

The sanitary facilities are formed by the plumbing with polyethylene tubes. The plumbing is formed by pipes and fittings in rigid PVC, with the corresponding hydraulic siphons.  The unions are materialized with specific adhesive PVC to ensure a complete seal.

This equipment counts with:

  • Four complete low-tank porcelain units with vertical escape.
  • Four sink units with pedestal, tap and mirror.
  • Eight units of shower trays with tap, shower and curtains.
  • Two units of electrical wall water heater of 200 litres with mixer.

 

Advantages of the modular prefabricated dressing rooms

The modular prefabricated dressing rooms are the perfect complement for any sports facilities:

  • The modular prefabricated dressing rooms are easyly detachable, allowing its‘ location to be changed.
  • Its‘ rapid manufacturing and easy installation allow to dispose of them in a short period of time.
  • Its‘ modularity provides a great versatility while amplifying or disminishing the dressing room’s surface, according to the needs of every moment, through adding or removing modules.
  • As the manufacturing process is made in a controlled area at the factory, less wastes are generated thanks to the more efficient consumption of water and energy, being also completely recyclable.

MODULAR OFFICE IN AIRPORT OF ALGIERA

We show you in this post some pictures of the assembly we are working on in Algeria. It deals with several modular buildings which will be used as offices by the engineers of our client, as part of the expansion work of the Houari Boumediene Airport of Algiers. Those works imply the construction of a new terminal with a surface area of 73 hectares. Thanks to this new terminal, the airport will be able to receive 22 thousands of passengers every year, instead of 12 thousands before the works.

Our client is one of the most important companies in the building and public works sector. As big multinationals, both Spanish and international, this company trusted in the professionalism of EUROPA PREFABRI for the manufacturing and the supplying of temporary installations for this project.

This project is composed by 4 buildings realized thanks to the assembly with two layers of prefabricated modules, with a total surface area of more than 3500m2. Modules have been made in Spain in record time and carried with Flat-Pack system in maritime containers.

We are currently working on new projects in Algeria and we hope that we will sign new contracts in the country in the coming months, because it is one of our exportations destination.

MODULES FOR CUSTOMER CARE OFFICES

Our modular constructions are particulary recommended for all kind of companies that need a workspace, both temporary and permanent, installed in a short period of time and paying special attention to design besides safety and quality of materials. Our modular constructions are fully customized and the client could choose between a wide range of variety in materials and different levels of accessorization depending on the use.

Here we offer an example of special modules manufactured for an important car rental company we are installing in different cities of France. In this case, our client has selected special panels and structure painted in corporate colors, as well as additional elements (air conditioning, furniture, glazing…) that we also offer to give a complete service so our clients do not have to worry about anything.

This company decided to use our prefabricated structures in all their new headquarters in France, considering the advantage that it is not necessary to anchored to the floor, which is relevant because most of the constructions are located in airport and stations car parks.  We plan the production and assembly of more than 50 modules in the coming months.
