Bord Gáis Whitegate Independent Power Plant, Whitegate, Co. Cork, Ireland

RR Projects has been involved on this project from the construction commencement in 2008 being contracted to erect and assemble the Air Cooled Condenser (ACC) and the Fin Fan Cooler. The Fin Fan Cooler was installed by our team in less than 2 weeks.

The ACC at this site was manufactured by SPX.  It has 4 streets with 5 fans per street. The work of erecting the ACC was completed and commissioned on schedule.

This project was managed by our most senior site supervisor and two of our mechanical engineers.

We had on site a full time welding engineer was our project manager, where he applied Code section 9, EN ISO 15614 welding standards which ensured the purity of pipe-work systems.
