Biomass plant in Rya
Gottlieb Paludan Architects has won Göteborg Energi’s design competition for a new biomass plant in Gothenburg , Sweden.
Like other major cities, Gothenburg plans to reduce its climate impact and phase out fossil fuel energy production. Therefore, the plant will act as an extension to the existing plant and will have a very prominent location at the entrance to the Göta River.
Gottlieb Paludan Architects’ design proposal aims to reduce the climate impact of the new plant already during construction, therefore a low climate impact has been ensured both in the construction process, the lifetime of the building and through the possibility of dismantling for recycling. The life cycle perspective also contributes to the building having a greater chance of resisting changes that may occur over time.
The design of the biomass plant seeks to leave an elegant and distinct impression. It is described as indistrual, but also soft in its appearance, and appears dymanic with good adaptability to the selected process equipment.
