Clover Power Station Upgrade

Clover Power Station Upgrade


Location: Bogong, Victoria

Client: AGL Energy

Scope: Clover Power Station is undergoing a turbine upgrade, in this project KUSCH has the following scope:

  • Designing an increase in tail bay wall height to generate back pressure required by new turbines
  • Design of new transformer bund
  • Design verification of loads from new turbines on existing structure
  • Design of penetrations in the existing floor slab

Design Considerations: 

  • Coordinating the new and existing structure, which was originally built in 1944
  • Verifying capacity of existing reinforced concrete structures to modern standards
  • Testing of concrete to understand remaining design life alongside capacity
  • High hydrostatic loading and dynamic loading
  • Coordination with external CFD consultant to ensure optimum turbine operation through tail bay outflow
