Concrete Chimneys

Design & Engineering


Concrete Chimneys are some of the tallest structures that can be found in thermal power plant. All thermal power plants in India with a capacity of 500MW or more require a chimney with a height of 275 meters.

These chimneys are subjected to various load factors and environmental forces such as high wind velocity, and proper design of these structures is crucial to ensure the safety of nearby structures, equipment, and personnel. Our engineering teams use the most modern computer software programs for design analysis and pre-post-processing of finite element data.

Bygging offers design & engineering services for all types of concrete chimneys.
