At the first power unit of the substitution plant under construction in Kurchatov, the lower support ring of the exhaust tower of the cooling tower began to be concreted
After concreting the shell of the exhaust tower, the evaporative cooling tower will become the tallest in our country, reaching a value of 179 meters.
As one of the project managers Rostislav Kimlik notes, the concreting of the entire tower shell will take about 14 thousand cubic meters of concrete. As a result, the mass of the shell will be comparable to the mass of the Ostankino TV tower in Moscow - about 35 thousand tons.
Before proceeding to the current stage of work, the builders installed one hundred columns of the inclined colonnade, closed in a 151-meter diameter, which took up to six months in time.
