Øvre Forsland Power Station in Helgeland, Norway by Kebony

Friday, October 2nd, 2015

Article source: Kebony

Norway, a country that generates more than 80% of its electricity from hydropower, has added to its renewable repertoire in the guise of a beautifully Kebony-clad 30GWh plant. The plant is situated deep within the mountains of Helgeland, a hiker’s paradise just below the Arctic Circle. The region is known for its unique coastline and spectacular mountain formations and the architects wanted the plant’s design to be inspired by and reflect the landscape, whilst also functioning as an attraction for hikers in the back country wilderness.

Water power plant station & facilites in Salzburg, Austria by maxRIEDER architect & engineer

The power plant illustrate the energy of water and its dynamics. The conciseness and the rhythm of forms was developed by the creatures of water, hydraulic rollers, cavitation appearances and overflow principles. Although pressed by such a regime Under such regime the required massive statics could still be designed in a sparkling and elegant way, creating a popular public zone upon the river Salzach. An infrastructure was transformed to a social sculpture.

The client, HelgelandsKraft AS, is a large producer of hydraulic electricity in northern parts of Norway. In 2008 they started planning several new hydraulic power stations with high environmental ambitions. From the beginning their task for the architect was to find the best way to make their new power stations adapt to the site, and at the same time function as attractions and destinations. The general idea from the architects at stein hamre arkitektkontor, is the design of the new stations should reflect characteristics of the locations. At the same time the buildings should be spectacular. They should also tell the story about the production of power.

Hydroelectric Power Station in Bavaria, Germany by Becker Architekten

Sunday, August 7th, 2011

Article source: Becker Architekten

The amorphous form appears both gentle and dynamic, resembling, among other things, a large fish. But it can also be viewed simply as a volume inspired by the motion of waves – as if the structure had taken shape as a flowing, swelling mass and then solidified. The form of this hydroelectric power station traces and dramatizes the channelled dynamism of the water as it flows into the holding basin, down through the turbines, and back into the River Iller. Another obvious association is with eroded stone; in the surrounding Allgäu region, not far from the Alps, such isolated rock formations are a common sight.

Artistic amenity Stadshaard in Enschede, The Netherlands by Branimir Medić & Pero Puljiz, de Architekten Cie

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2011

Article source: Branimir Medić & Pero Puljiz, de Architekten Cie

This power station is an instrument of education: designed to develop a sensibility for the consumption of energy and sustainable cohabitation. Combined heat and power plants are usually neutral industrial structures that are situated at some inconspicuous location. By contrast, the Stadshaard (literally the ‘city hearth’) stands at a prominent spot in Roombeek, where a neutral building would be out of place. With the Stadshaard’s dimensions (a building 10 metres high with a 40-metre chimney) it would, moreover, be impossible to realize an ‘invisible’ building that merges with the surroundings.

Hydra Skyscraper by Vlastic, Vuk Djordjevic, Ana Lazovic and Milica Stankovic

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

What would happen when the ultimate source of energy could be free for all humans, when it could be possible to replace all fossil fuels with   alternative ? In an effort to reduce global climate change, we made a facility which can produce the most rewarding alternative sources of sustainable energy – Hydrogen . As we know hydrogen does not exist alone in nature, and it is a very important element because it can be used as a non-toxic energy storage and transport medium. Hydrogen can provide a promising method to help the World to achieve energy independence, make strides in environmental stewardship, and develop a thriving economy.
