Peikko Group has received a substantial order of concrete connection items to a precast cooling tower of a new electric power plant located in Pocheon, South Korea. The order comprises a notable amount of HPM® Rebar Anchor Bolts, HPKM® Column Shoes and COPRA® Anchoring Couplers for column connections, as well as SUMO® Wall Shoes and PVL® Connecting Loops for wall connections for the project. Peikko’s COLIFT Mounting System is used in the erection stage.
The main contractor of the project is GS. The precast elements for the project are supplied by Sean, and the subcontractor responsible for the precast frame erection is Taehwa. Altogether, the project consists of 84 precast columns and 1,608 precast beams. Peikko’s deliveries started in February 2017 and will continue until the end of summer.
“This project is Peikko’s first in South Korea, but at the same time the power plant is a significant project also in South Korea; it is one of the very few construction projects using a full precast frame in a long time. As the construction market of South Korea is shifting toward precast construction, Peikko will have its first employee working in the country by April 2017 offering local technical support alongside sales activities,” states Topi Paananen, CEO of Peikko Group Corporation.
