Power plant revision at Uniper:
148 cabins for standstill in Wilhelmshaven

During a comprehensive shutdown at Uniper power plant in Wilhelmshaven in the summer of 2017, AMTRA placed a big modular building providing 720 changing rooms. The changing, shower and toilet units are complemented by 20 comfortably furnished office cabins, in which the complex processes of the turnaround measures are planned and monitored.

Complete equipment including furniture

AMTRA not only supplied the different types of cabins in the project but also equipped them with furniture. From a refrigerator, changing mat, a filing cabinet or office tables, we equipped the cabins according to our customer’s wishes.

Each office cabin has two desk workstations including roll cabins, filling cabinets and a refrigerator as well as chairs for visitors. The changing rooms in the single cabind have 10 lockers each, two tables and eight chairs. In the largest version as a triple unit, the changing rooms have space for 30 lockers, 6 tables, 24 chairs and three refrigerators.

Additionally, double lockers with the option of consistent black and white separation for up to 720 people are available in the modular building.

Safety through SCCP certification

Wide, bright corridors ensure safety inside the building.

AMTRA pays close attention to maintaining the high safety standards required of petrochemical companies.
This is confirmed by our certification according to SCCP, which is an important part of our quality management.

Extensive safety equipment at the plant in Wilhelmshaven ensures accident-free working. In case of fire, radio-networked smoke detectors warn all employees in the building.

Several fire extinguishers in the corridors enable prompt extinguishing attempts. Each floor has three emergency exits, which can be opened at any time, thanks to panic locking.

Bright LED floodlights on the stairs and entrances ensure that employees can escape more safely, even in the dark.

Cabins were positioned with telescopic crane

The planned area on the power plant site was difficult to reach for trucks. Therefore, a telescopic crane was used; the cabins were positioned with its long outrigger.

Despite its considerable dimensions, the modular building on the lower left seems rather small in comparison to the buildings of the power plant.
