ACCEN CASE STUDY – Where do we take care of safety when working at height

ACCEN solutions work well in every industry

Poznań New Market
Nowy Rynek is an investment located in Poznań at the intersection of the most important communication lines, in the heart of a dynamically developing part of the city, surrounded by parks and historic buildings of Wilda.
The Nowy Rynek project will create an open area that Poznań residents will be able to use in many ways – working in newly built office buildings or relaxing in the gardens of city cafes. The project will become an important element of the new district, enriching its urban offer.
Skanska invited the best architectural studios in Poland to design individual buildings. The Maćków Pracownia Projektowa studio from Wrocław is responsible for the design of the first two. The authors of the design of the third and fourth building are Medusa group.

Scope of implementation:
The market square is the heart of the city. The New Market in Poznań is a futuristic complex of buildings of various applications. In this modern architecture, we have designed and installed Accen Line horizontal belayinh systems and FAS facade access systems. In projects where every detail counts, you cannot afford randomness. We have adapted our solution to the development so as not to disturb the visual character of the body developed by designers and contractors.

Browary Warszawskie
Browary Warszawskie is an area between Grzybowska, Wronia, Chlodna and Krochmalna streets, which Developer Echo Investment will reintegrate into the urban fabric. With residential buildings, office buildings and public squares, rest and recreation areas, cafés, restaurants and shops, a new city district is being created, open to all.

IKEA industry Orla
IKEA Industry Poland sp. z o.o. the Orla branch is a complex of two plants, including: a modern factory of ultra-thin HDF boards (High Density Fibreboard), a sawmill and a plant for added production, where the boards are cut to size.
Ultra-thin HDF boards manufactured in the plant are used to produce lightweight furniture for IKEA. The boards produced in the IKEA Industry sawmill go to the manufacturers cooperating with IKEA and other companies present on the Polish market. The sawmill uses the most modern and innovative solutions for sorting and processing small diameter wood, so far unavailable in Poland.

Scope of implementation:
The design of fall protectino systems for the IKEA branch in Orla was a real challenge. The diverse nature of the successive stages of production translates into a large variety of facilities within the complex. In order to ensure the safety of the employees during their work, it was necessary to have solutions appropriate to the given structures. The safety system for IKEA therefore includes Accen Line horizontal rope systems, vertical systems on ladders, railings and anchorage points for trapezoidal sheets.

Bridge on the S7 road in Krakow
The Cardinal Franciszek Macharski Bridge is the longest crossing of the Vistula River in Lesser Poland. The crossing consists of two parallel cable-stayed bridges, 706 m and 695,5 m long, each with 3 lanes. The bridge was built by the companies STRABAG and STRABAG Infrastruktura Południe as part of the contract for the Construction of the S7 expressway, section Krakow Przewóz – Krakow Nowa Huta junction.
Many innovative solutions were used in the construction. One of the novelties was the use of metallurgical cements in massive elements. (including dolomite aggregate for concrete in massive elements for bridge structures – first such application in Poland and concrete in massive elements on metallurgical cements. STRABAG is a pioneer here because it is the first construction company to use metallurgical cement to compress massive concrete elements. The load-bearing structure is an equally interesting solution. It is a continuous beam, which in the ballast part consists of a prestressed concrete structure and in the upstream part of a composite structure (main girders and steel cross members).

Scope of implementation:
The possibility of safe work along the entire height of this amazing bridge was ensured thanks to the systems of vertical rail ladders and reliable Trax light B points. It was the best choice in terms of the construction technique used by the contractors. These devices enable safe movement along the bridge structure.

ZTPO Kraków – The Thermal Waste Treatment Plant in Krakow
The eco-incinerator was created as a response to the ecological and energy needs of Krakow as part of the project „Municipal Waste Management Program in Krakow”. It is the latest and most important part of this system; it enables to utilise municipal waste generated by the inhabitants of Krakow and the recovery of energy from it.
The thermal recycling technology is the most mature and environmentally responsible solution to waste. This is confirmed by the many years of European experience in which thermal processing of waste with recovery of energy form the basis of the entire waste management system.
The ECO-INCINERATOR allows to process 220 thousand tons of municipal waste during the year. Approximately 65,000 MWh of electricity and 280,000 MWh of heat are produced as a result of the combustion. The energy obtained by way of the thermal transformation process is largely organic and renewable.

Scope of implementation:
On the roofs of the incinerator, we have installed several hundred meters of rope systems and anchor points attached to roof sheets with standing seam. The specificity of the roof and the sheathing has forced us to use points with special clamps.

Gas pipeline
President Lech Kaczyński’s LNG Terminal in Świnoujście has been in operation since 2016. Polskie LNG launched the construction of the plant in 2010, and The LNG Terminal in Świnoujście has contributed to the energy security in Poland and Central and Eastern Europe, as well as it enables the import of liquefied gas to Poland from any direction in the world.
The technological processes and services currently provided by the LNG Terminal include unloading LNG from a LNG carriers at the unloading jetty, LNG process storage in cryogenic tanks, LNG regasification and send-out of natural gas to the National Transmission System, LNG transhipment onto tanker trucks and ISO containers.
The LNG Terminal’s annual regasification capacity amounts to 5 billion Nm³. The plant also includes two cryogenic tanks for LNG process storage with a capacity of 160,000 m³ each.

Scope of implementation:
On the roof of the pipeline flyover, we have delivered and installed over 1000 running meters of rope systems. The system uses end points and intermediate points fixed directly to the trapezoidal sheets and special tension locks with a system voltage indicator and fall indicator. Intermediate points are equipped with elements that allow the user to move freely without having to dismount the system. The part of the flyover located at sea required us to follow all procedures related to work on the high seas.
