Tecnical Tour to Amager Bakke
Friday 20 September, 13:30 hrs - 16:30 hrs
Technical Tour to the newly build power plant Amager Bakke including a walk downhill the ski slope placed on the top of the building.
This project demonstrates that large industrial facilities can be molded into innovative solutions that would both be architecture and a gift to the community. The power plant will be the cleanest Waste-to-Energy plant in the world, and the smoke coming out of the chimney will be non-toxic.
The building has a high complexity due to several reasons. The exterior architectural expressions re-quire the correct shape for a double curved skiing slope. This is merged with the interior demands for waste to energy machinery. The result is a complex geometrical structure for which steel is the only feasible material to apply when forming the superstructure.
The building/ski slopes has a height of 85 meters, which topped by the chimney is 125 meters high. The building complex also includes an 11-storey administration building. A total of approximately 7,500 tons of structural steel is applied to the building parts.
