Towers Project

Tower for the 5th Unit of Ptolemaida Public Power Company

Construction of 2 towers, 143,50m high and 12,80x12,8 m floor plans with internal partitions at the 5th PPC unit in Ptolemaida.

There was a climbing ladder and a lift for the staff. At the lower 40.00 meters the towers would be connected to the building that would be built afterwards.

A special slipform shuttering was made so that horizontal reinforcements protruding from the slipform shuttering were placed in the slide without bending.

During sliding, a special membrane was also placed on the outer surface to create a rough joint surface.
