These are the main elements
of 70-year history
of Mostostal Warszawa!
Officially, Mostostal was established in 1945. However, the Company's ethos, technical expertise and experience derive from a lot deeper and older tradition as the core staff of the organization comprised the think-tank of engineers and distinguished specialists of one of the most outstanding company of the pre-war Poland – Towarzystwo Przemysłu Metalowego Konstanty Rudzki i Spółka.
The company registered in 1858 was headquartered in Warsaw's Solec district located between Rozbrat and Czerniakowska Streets. In the beginning, it was operating mainly as a foundry – an industrial plant making a full line of cast-iron, brass and copper goods. Konstanty Rudzki, the company's founder, main shareholder and long-time Director and President, had studied at the Parisian breeding ground for engineers - École des Arts et Manufactures – the very same technical university attended also by Gustaw Eiffel. Through the 40s and 50s of the XIX century, he was gaining experience at various steel plants of France, England and Germany as well as southern Poland.
The industrial plant founded and managed by Rudzki was going through a phase of rapid development and it was not too long before it established a strong position on the Warsaw, Polish and international markets. Although the company was making agricultural machinery, sewage pipes and other steel goods, it was the production of bridge elements and their assembly at construction sites that remained the main drive behind the company's success at the turn of the centuries. Towards the end of the century, the company employed over one thousand employees and was the third largest machinery construction enterprise in the Polish Kingdom. The Warsaw-based steel manufacturing company became one of the key beneficiaries of the intensive railway development program in the Czar's Russia.
For Rudzki, the meticulous completion of orders - the construction of bridges, including caisson and concrete works – proved helpful in acquiring new bridge contracts. In this respect, the Polish company was practically the only enterprise in the Russian Empire capable of completing such contracts. Prior to the First World War, almost 1/5 of bridge contracts within the European and Asian parts of the Russian Empire were completed by Rudzki's company.
The Company was building bridges over the Empire's main rivers: Volga, Amu-Darya, Ingada, Ussuri, Amur, Neva and many others. The Warsaw-based enterprise completed many passages under the Trans-Siberian railway project, including all the bridges alongside the section running parallel to the northern bank of the Amur River. One must admire the Polish engineers of that era for the method they applied to organize the works within the area so distant from mother plant. The steel structures provided by the Polish plant were transported by railway to Odessa of the Black Sea. Next, down the sea route through the Suez Canal to the Far East and farther to Nikolayevsk located at the mouth of the Amur River. From there, they were taken on river boats to the construction sites with some of them located as far as 2500 km away. There, the elements were finally assembled using own equipment on supports built by company's specialists.
In Poland, the engineers of "Rudzki" were building bridge facilities in Dęblin, Modlin, Puławy, Płock, Włocławek, and in Warsaw. The erection of the first entirely welded European road bridge over Słudwia River near Łowicz was an outstanding achievement within the field of engineering that drew worldwide attention. The plant was also building water turbines and steel telegraph towers. In total, during its long-term operation, the Warsaw-based company made several hundreds of bridge facilities (many of which were from 200- to 1000-meter long). The key projects included, inter alia, the 2,5-km long Amur River bridge near Khabarovsk – the longest bridge structure on the Old Continent.
The list of achievements of the Warsaw-based company is the best proof that Polish civil engineering has always been top-notch with bold ideas particularly within the fields of production organization and bridge engineering. Though Towarzystwo Przemysłu Metalowego Konstanty Rudzki i Spółka was shut down following the Second World War, its values, experience and innovative technical approach were accepted by Mostostal founded in 1945.
The new part of the Opole Power Plant is Poland's largest infrastructural project over the past 25
years and currently the largest investment in Europe. It is also the key project currently under completion by
The main infrastructural project in Poland since 1989, i.e. the construction of two power units of total power output of 1800MW for PLN 11.6 billion in Brzezie near Opole, is yet another groundbreaking project in the company's portfolio over its 70-year long operation.
In 2019, the power plant will be one of the most modern coal-fired power plants worldwide. The two units under completion – each generating 900MW of power – will be fired with hard coal. Annually, they will use up approx. 4 million tons of coal supplied from the Upper Silesia. The application of cutting-edge technologies will allow net energy production efficiency to be improved by approx. 25% against the current mark of the Polish power engineering sector. Moreover, it will significantly limit the power plant's impact on the environment, including carbon dioxide emissions cut down by approx. 25% per unit of generated power. The new units at the Opole Power Plant will make a considerable contribution to the completion of the EU's energy and climate policy latest objectives as they will replace the units built during the 60s and 70s of the XX century now being decommissioned at the other power plants
The project, with a total value in excess of PLN 11.6 million, is under completion by the consortium comprising: Rafako, Polimex-Mostostal and Mostostal Warszawa with the partnership of Alstom Power. As scheduled, Unit 5 will be commissioned in July 2018 and Unit 6 in 2019. The new units will generate up to 12.5 TWh of electric energy per annum which will cover the demand of over 4 million households.
The full range of the works comprising the construction of Units 5 and 6 at the Opole Power Plant is completed by a subsidiary - Mostostal Power Development. The framework defined under a project execution contract includes 21% of all the works. They include, inter alia, construction of a boiler room for Units 5 and 6 and boiler pressure section assembly, foundation and reinforced concrete works for gas desulfurization system, oil systems, workshops and storage rooms building, and turn-key assembly of de-slagging, compressed air, ash removal, oil and carbonization systems located outside the building. The net value of the works entrusted to the company will amount to PLN 2.249 million.
The Rędziński Bridge in Wrocław is ranked 19th largest single-pylon suspended bridge facility
worldwide. It is the tallest and longest bridge across Poland. 180 000 tons of steel and 110 000 m3 of
concrete were used to build it. The structure's underside ascends to reach an approximate height of 15 m above the
highest navigable inland waterway. The bridge's load-bearing system comprises two separate structures, each 19.24 m
wide per carriageway (3 lanes in each direction + emergency lane).
General data: Pylon height: 122 m
Main bridge length: 612 m
Length of main bridge spans: 50 m / 256 m / 256 m / 50 m
Length of access viaducts: right bank – 520 m, left bank – 610 m
Total length: 1 742 m
Total width: 48,55 m
Number of shrouds: 80 pairs
This building is the only office building erected recently in the northern part of the city's downtown
area. Aside from its general office functions offering approx. 30.000 m2 of office floor, this 24-storey,
A class, 87-meter high building provides service and retail space as well as a restaurant taking up approx. 1000
m2 of ground floor. Under the project, a 3-storey underground parking lot was also built, providing 310
parking spaces. The NorthGate architectural concept is based on the combination of a two-section body comprising a
tower and a podium. Through the application of stone and ceramic cladding, the facade of the podium resembles that
of the neighboring building. Two entrances lead into the building – one from ul. Bonifaterska and the main entrance
from ul. Andersa with the latter neatly exposed by the application of glazing extending from the ground floor all
the way up to the sixth floor. Aside from the architectural design, the top quality of the building is also
delivered by the attention paid to details and the quality of the finishing materials applied to joint surfaces. The
spacious hall is made of natural materials - marble of various colors (ranging from light beige to dark brown) and
of natural wood. Owing to the wavy lines incorporated into the wooden wall cladding with varying intensity of
colors, the roughness of the building's exterior has been eliminated. The several-meter high reception stands out
with its modern circular design.
The office building is also fitted with a Building Management System (BMS), safety, access control, intrusion alert systems, and CCTV cameras. In case of emergency, the building is equipped with a backup power supply unit designed to handle all the safety systems, including the emergency lighting system. In addition to the centralized HVAC system, each office room provides a manual temperature setup option.
A contract completed at the order of the General Directorate of National Roads and Motorways was concluded
on September 1, 2010. Under the project, the consortium consisting of Mostostal Warszawa and Acciona Infrastruktura
extended the existing S-7 road to meet the properties of a dual motorway on a section from the Wiśniówka Junction to
the Chęciny Junction.
The framework of the works included:
- Extension of the existing Kielce Beltway (from km 538+800 to km 561+661) to the parameters of a complete S 2/2 motorway (target road profile 2x3 m – extra space was reserved for a third lane);
- Conversion of three junctions (Kielce South, Kielce Jaworznia and Kielce West), transverse road entrances and access roads to enable connection to the existing road;
- Conversion of the existing engineering structures and construction of new facilities (including animal passages);
- Construction of two Motorway Service Areas (MSA)- conversion of the road drainage and lighting systems and technical infrastructure;
- Demolition of enclosed structures interfering with the project;
- Construction of environmental protection devices.
The project includes the construction of a 22.8-kilometer motorway section, 3 road junctions, 86 engineering structures – including bridges, overpasses, culverts, pedestrian crossings, animal passages and accompanying network infrastructures. Kostomłoty Junction – the largest road junction across the province and one of the largest junctions in Poland, connecting the S-7 Motorway with State Road No. 74, serves as one of the elements of the project under completion. Special attention should be paid to the construction of the largest animal passage in the Świętokrzyskie Province – facility PZ-15. The applied structure is an arc double-chamber soil-shell type of structure. This is why the passage is comfortable for its users and attractive in esthetic terms. Owing to the flora covering the passage, it fits the adjacent area.
The Kielce Beltway is the largest road contract of the Świętokrzyskie Province with its gross value amounting to PLN 647 million.
Central Department of Water is the oldest of the three water treatment plants of the capital city. In 1876, on the initiative of the President of Warsaw – Sokrates Starynkiewicz, an agreement was entered into with William Lindley for the execution of a project involving the water supply and sewage systems for Warsaw. The project was completed by his sons, Willilam Heerlein and Joseph Lindley. The initial supply of water to Warsaw households began on July 3, 1886. Over the years, the "Warsaw Filters", as the plant is commonly referred to by the residents of Warsaw, has adapted new water treatment technologies. The most recent of them – indirect ozonization and activated carbon filtration – is introduced through a facility designed and completed by the consortium of Mostostal Warszawa SA, Seen Technologie Sp. z o.o. and Energotechnika Sp. z o.o. The Central Department of Water is under the assistance of the monuments' restorer and, on his recommendation, the forms and materials applied in the new building go in line with the entire area. The basic materials used to build it comprise red clinker brick, sandstone and pre-oxidized copper sheet. This marvelous facade conceals a maintenance-free facility. The interior, spreading over two underground and four above ground floors, houses systems, pipelines and reinforced concrete water reservoirs taking up 52% of the surface.
The hall erected at Al. Pokoju and ul. Stanisława Lema in Cracow is a state-of-the-art entertainment and sports complex meeting every single international standard. The acceptance of an additional operation program provides high-level flexibility, including without limitation an option to maintain a permanent ice rink for a period of 10 months a year without interfering with other shows or sports events. The facility design has received 14 positive opinions from sport federations confirming the facility's ability to host competitions covering at least 18 disciplines such as athletics, hockey, tennis, figure skating or combat sports. In addition to strictly sport related purposes, the facility is fully adapted to mass events such as concerts, conventions and congresses, as well as other trade fair and exhibition type of events. Stands - fixed and movable – are fitted with 15 000 seats and during concerts, when the stage is located on the lower arena, the hall can hold up to 18 000 spectators. Inside the facility, there are also 27 skyboxes – i.e. spaces leased by businesses for various business projects. It also includes restaurants and wellness centers.
Tauron Arena Cracow took the first place in a prestigious competition "Construction of the Year 2014", in the sports complex category.
Konotopa Junction This is the first element of the Warsaw Express Beltway aimed to divert the A2 Motorway
traffic. The entire rout totaling 10.3 km in length was completed by Mostostal Warszawa with joint cooperation of
the consortium made of Budimex S.A., Strabag Sp. z o.o., Warbud S.A.; however, the 1.1-kilometer long Mostostal
Warszawa section was the most complicated piece of work in engineering terms. The works completed by the company
included the construction of a 1.1 km section of the express road (dual 3-lane with emergency lanes) running at 2 –
6 meters below ground level in an open ditch limited by cavity walls on both sides. In addition, the framework of
the works included the construction of collision-free "karo" type junctions and adjustment of the existing streets
to the new transport network. Mostostal Warszawa also converted the rail siding and built a new overpass.
The value of the works completed by Mostostal Warszawa amounted to PLN 624 million. The whole contract amounted to PLN 2.2 billion and was financed by the Cohesion Fund.
This project is located within the Elbląg District of the Warmia-Masuria Province in northern Poland and it extends through the territory of the Rychiliki, Pasłęk and Elbląg communes. The revitalized slipway sections of the Elbląg Canal between Buczyniec Sluice Gates and Całuny Slipway are located on the Miłomłyn – Drużno Lake sailing route. The project comprises the Elbląg Canal Protected Landscape Area and is located in the vicinity of the Drużno Lake Natura 2000 Area and Drużno Lake Nature Reserve. Under the regulation of the President of the Republic of Poland of January 14, 2011, the Elbląg Canal was recognized as a historic landmark. It is a monument of hydraulic engineering concept on an international scale and the only structure of this type in Poland, and probably in Europe. The slipways (Buczyniec, Kąty, Oleśnica, Jelenie, and Całuny), located away from each other, comprise five similar structures and several building permits within a single project. The construction covered all the elements: ground work, reinforced concrete, railway, hydro engineering, reinforcement, engineering, power, sanitary, road, mechanics and maintenance. The project also included the construction of a Water Management Station building, engine room, welfare facilities, and a new Historical Chamber of the Elbląg Canal.
Mostostal Warszawa was in charge of the construction of the „B” section of the A2 Stryków – Konotopa Motorway construction. The following works were completed:
Total quantity of concrete for all engineering facilities: 92 200 m3
Total quantity of reinforced concrete for engineering facilities: 12 300 ton
The project was completed through a consortium involving RadscanIntervex Polska Sp. z o.o. The heat
recovery system installed at the heat and power plant is the first Polish system of this type based on humid
exhaust. The system allows recovery of the energy evacuated into the air through a chimney in the form of exhaust
gases, thus improving the heat output by decreasing the so-called "outlet loss". The energy recovery process
consists in collecting the heat from condensed exhaust moisture and transferring it over to the heating network. The
system's nominal power is 18.4 MW. The forecasted annual production of heat is 385.697 GJ.
This innovative Polish technology is successfully applied across waste combustion plants and biomass-fired boilers in Scandinavia. The EHR-based heat will allow reduction of the current consumption of coal in boilers during winter. This, in turn, will cause further reduction of CO2 emissions. The estimated reduction of CO2 emissions amounts to 20 000 tons per year.
