Ramirent Poland wins scaffolding project in Slovenia
By Maria Hadlow07 September 2011
Ramirent Poland will supply the general scaffolding services and access solutions for the development of the Slovenian, Sostanj power plant. Ramirent has been selected by the project's main contractor Alstom Power Systems GmbH.
The project is the largest power-generating investment in Slovenia and includes the construction of a new block with a capacity of 600MW. The modernisation of the Termoelektrarna Sostanj Power Plant will last from March 2012 till November 2014.
About half the workforce will be recruited locally and during the peak stage of the scaffolding works, the project will employ about 100 workers. Based on similar projects undertaken in the past, Ramirent has estimated the value of the contract to be EUR 10 million.
Tomasz Walawender, Ramirent's senior vice president, Europe Central said, "The Sostanj Power Plant is a major recognition of Ramirent's expertise in providing rental services for industrial construction. The project supports our strategy of providing specialised services for the construction and maintenance of industrial facilities. We have already started planning the scaffolding works and look forward to working with Alstom Power Systems on this demanding project."
