A construction work on the Clean Coal Technologies Center (CCTW) being conducted by Budus S.A. slowly draws to an end. The building’s elevation waits for last finishing touches, more works are to be done inside where the interior needs installation, plastering, glazing, painting, then furnitures and specialistic equipment.
In fact, the equipment is to be the core and the most important part of the Center as the building will be a high-tech scientific unit focused on experiments including researches on gaseous fuels, hydrogen, termochemical processing, etc. The Central Mining Institute (GIG), an investor of the project, is to issue tender procedures to appoint a contractor who will deliver and install the equipment in the laboratories of this 5 000 sq. meters facility.
The building shall be opened next year. It was designed by the “Barysz Point Line” studio. The works on the elevation made of a brown clinker brick and red panels of the Konvortec system were executed by the Level company from Gdańsk, Poland.
Meanwhile, the approximately 1 500 sq. meters Radiometry Laboratory raised right alongside the CCTW is completed now. This research unit prepares elaborations of assessments and expert opinions concerning radiation hazard, measurements of radioactivity of building materials, radon concentration in buildings, soil and water, radionuclide concentration in liquid and solid samples.
The entire undertaking – both buildings and training courses planned for scientific workers – is worth EUR 45 million co-financed by the European Union.
