Ramirent Poland wins scaffolding project in Slovenia

Alstom Power Systems GmbH, the main contractor of Sostanj Power Plant Unit 6, has chosen Ramirent Poland as the project’s main supplier of scaffolding services.

The largest power-generating investment in Slovenia includes the construction of a new block with a capacity of 600 MW. The modernization of the Termoelektrarna Sostanj Power Plant will last from March 2012 till November 2014.

Ramirent Poland will be the general supplier of scaffolding services and access solutions. Approximately 50% of the workforce will be recruited locally. During the peak stage of the scaffolding works, the project will employ about 100 workers. Based on past, similar projects, Ramirent has estimated the value of the contract for Ramirent throughout the project duration to amount to up to EUR 10 million.

“The Sostanj Power Plant is a major recognition of Ramirent’s expertise in providing rental services for industrial construction. The project supports our strategy of providing specialized services for construction and maintenance of industrial facilities,” said Tomasz Walawender, SVP, Europe Central. “We have already started planning the scaffolding works and look forward to working with Alstom Power Systems on this demanding project.”
