Cooling tower refurbishment

Since many years Sika Czech Republic has been involved in the refurbishment of cooling towers of power plants throughout the country. Sika solutions were applied for the refurbishment of the cooling towers of the Coal Power Station Tusimice and of the Coal Power Station Ledvice.

In the period from 2007 to 2012, Tušimice Power Plant II underwent a grandiose complex restoration that will ensure its future operation in line with the current European standards roughly till 2035 when the adjacent Libouš mine is expected to be exhausted. The power plant’s efficiency increased by 6%, which saves 14% of fuel per MWh produced.  Sika has been a  partner in the field of concrete refurbishment since 1994. The Sika solution encompasses concrete admixtures - the Sika® ViscoCrete® technology and th admixture Sika® Control®, Sika Control - as well as membranes and the protective coat Sika Poxitar® for waterproofing were applied. Sika Icosit® was used for steel and concrete protection. Further Sika products which are applied: SikaRep®, Sika MonoTop®, Sikagard®, Sikadur®, SikaGrout, Sikafloor®-83 EpoCem®and Sikagard®-720 EpoCem®

Ledvice Power Station
yes
Ledvice Power Station

In addition to production of electric energy, the Ledvice Power Station provides heat power to the towns of Teplice and Bílina. The electricity and heat power production combined in a single cycle, the so-called co-generation, reduces fuel consumption per power unit produced, thus partially eliminating environmental impacts.

The total annual supply of heat power to various customers equals to, approximately, 1,000 TJ, with the maximum heat power output of 150 MW. The power output installed for heat supplies equals to 380 MW, and the waste water chemical treatment plant capacity allows for 270 MW supplies to heat distribution networks.

Sika has been a partner in the field of  refurbishment work since 1994. The protective Sika Poxitar® F did serve for waterproofing. Sika Icosit® was used for steel and concrete protection. Further Sika products which are applied: SikaRep®, Sika MonoTop®, Sikagard®, and SikaGrout®.
