Peikko Group has announced an order of concrete connection items for a precast cooling tower of a new electric power plant in Pocheon, South Korea.

The order includes a considerable amount of various items, as well as the usage of Peikko’s system in the erection stage.

The deliveries have already commenced and will continue until the end of summer.

“This project is Peikko’s first in South Korea, but at the same time the power plant is a significant project also in South Korea; it is one of the very few construction projects using a full precast frame in a long time,” tells Topi Paananen, CEO of Peikko Group Corporation. “As the construction market of South Korea is shifting toward precast construction, Peikko will have its first employee working in the country by April 2017 offering local technical support alongside sales activities.”

Peikko Group supplies concrete connections and composite structures. It’s a family-run company with subsidiaries in 30 countries.
