Reference facility

The largest municipal project in Poland

The expansion and modernisation of the Solid Municipal Waste Disposal Plant (incineration plant) / ZUSOK in Warsaw is currently the largest municipal investment in Poland. It is functionally very important for Warsaw, as a substantial component of the capital's waste management system, and has become a reference facility for many communities. The development of the plant, which will increase its production capacity sevenfold on completion, is a major challenge for both the investor and the general contractor.

Chimney at ZUSOK completed

We have completed the chimney at ZUSOK, which is the last section in the flue gas cleaning system. Three flue pipes were placed in the shaft of the chimney - a separate one for each line (K1, K2, K3). Each pipe consists of four 20-metre segments weighing approximately 5.5 tonnes, which were lifted more than 80 m above the shaft and then lowered into the chimney where they were joined together. During the lowering process, the segments passed partially through previously installed platforms, where there is only 5 cm of clearance between the segment and the platform structure. The operation…
