BASIC PROJECT FOR THE RAS DJINET COMBINED CYCLE POWER STATION COOLING CIRCUIT, ALGERIA
- Start Date / End Date: 2011
- Place: DOUAR MENDIL (ARGELIA)
- Scope: Basic Tender Project
The Basic Project was prepared for the Ras Djinet combined cycle power station cooling system. The pump station, intake pipelines and discharge canal were pre-sized.
The characteristics of the submarine outfall are as follows:• Material: PE100.• Inside diameter: Three 2,400 mm pipes (1 as a reserve)• Average length of polyethylene: 1,496 m• Flow rate: 10 m3/s• Discharge canal outfall
The first step was to use available studies to estimate the intake depth required to collect water at a temperature that would guarantee the proper system cooling. Once the depth was defined, the cooling system was sized.
