Ballotta hydropower station , Pakistan [Mar 03,2016]
- engineering in FIDIC contract conditions (clause of FIDIC) based, strict and standard of the contract, but the harmony that project management interface is quite complicated.Owner for Pakistan hydropower development agency (WAPDA), engineers (HMW), for the United States, the UK (Binni) and the local Nespak of five consulting companies such as joint consulting firm.The project construction is divided into three, closely related to plant construction mechanical and electrical equipment supply and installation are divided into 10 standard, shall be borne by the world famous international contractors, some of the equipment and the C - 03 standard shall be responsible for the installation, and in the C - 03 mark in the contract and pressure steel pipe production and installation of singling out designated by the owner of the subcontractor's account.
- the contract within the scope of the structural engineering point, and widely huge quantities.C - 03 the main building of the permanent works including: workshop, tailrace, canal tail adjust the brake, the former pool, water inlet, pressure steel pipe, the reservoir dam, north and south base camp and drainage base hole, spillway, switching stations, and other ancillary buildings.The main physical quantities including: 25.25 million cubic meters, the dam filling conditions excavation 18.87 million cubic meters, the structure concrete pouring 1.05 million cubic meters, metal structure installation of 8350 tons.
- projects for a country and of the commonwealth countries, private land, relatively perfect various regulations and external interference in the process of construction, labor strike, etc.Ballotta during the project construction, has experienced a military coup, two south Asian nuclear crisis, the "9.11" incident, and after the war in Afghanistan, the south Asian earthquake and other events, as well as for land expropriation, size of hundreds of times resistance work event happened, affected the time limit for a project for 15 months.Occurred nine times strike, 3 times of that is just a big strike, the longest production stopped 12 days, had a negative impact on the implementation of the project.
- the contract price is low.Ballotta C - 03 - the project is the bank's competitive bidding project, the price is lower than in the joint engineers budget of $80 million, less than two standard nearly $30 million, a potential risk of loss, and the project for the first time joint two parent companies in joint pattern with a small amount of overseas management organization construction of local Labour very large hydropower projects, cost control is very difficult.
Ballotta project is China's biggest overseas contracts at the time of the hydroelectric project, is also the first time go abroad hydropower eight innings contract to build the first project, due to various factors, engineering construction, the project management stumbled, ballotta hydropower station C - 3 standard for nine consecutive years carrying loses a hat, ballotta project became hydropower eight innings of "going out" of "life and death".
