Review of events:
On November 24, 2016, a particularly serious accident occurred in the cooling tower construction platform collapse of the third phase expansion project of Fengcheng Power Plant in Jiangxi Province, resulting in 73 deaths and 2 injuries, and direct economic losses of 101.972 million yuan.
Findings of The State Council investigation team
A few days ago, Jiangxi Fengcheng Power Plant "11·24" cooling tower construction platform collapse of the special major accident investigation team released the results of the investigation. The problems in the application of concrete in the construction of projects that have attracted the attention of the cement industry have also been clearly identified, and the survey results show that: The supplier of concrete for the construction of the project is illegal construction, and there is no industrial and commercial license, no professional contract qualification of ready-mixed concrete, did not pass the acceptance and approval of environmental protection and other departments, and has not yet obtained the approval of the establishment of the case on the illegal supply of commodity concrete to the project, the person in charge of the company is also suspected of production and sales of shoddy products, and was approved by the procuratorial organs. The investigation team determined that the general contractor of the project, Zhongnan Electric Power Design Institute Co., Ltd. was not strict in the review of the construction scheme, lacked effective control over the subcontracted construction units, and did not find and stop the illegal dismantling of molds and other behaviors of the project department of the construction unit.
The main problems of concrete suppliers
According to the identification of the investigation team, the direct cause of this accident is that the construction unit illegally dismantled the section 50 formwork in the case of insufficient concrete strength of the section 50 cylinder wall of the No. 7 cooling tower, resulting in the loss of formwork support of the section 50 cylinder wall concrete, which is not enough to withstand the upper load and collapses from the weak point at the bottom. Caused section 50 and above cylinder wall concrete and mold frame system to collapse continuously. The falling object impinges on the attached cable of the flat bridge connected to the inner side of the cylinder wall, resulting in the collapse of the flat bridge as a whole.
Guodian Fengcheng Dingli New Building Materials Co., LTD. (hereinafter referred to as Fengcheng Dingli Building Materials Company) is No. 7 cooling tower ready-mixed concrete supply unit. On July 22, 2016, Fengcheng Dingli Building Materials Company signed the "Commodity concrete procurement Contract" with Hebei Yineng Company, the construction unit of No. 7 cooling tower, and Fengcheng Dingli Building Materials Company is responsible for the supply of commodity concrete. After investigation, Fengcheng Dingli Building Materials Company in the absence of approval, has set up a concrete mixing station in April 2016 in the Fengcheng Power plant Phase III expansion project construction site, began to supply concrete.
The investigation team made it clear in the main problems of the responsible units, No. 7 cooling tower concrete supply unit Fengcheng Dingli Building Materials Company in April 2016, no industrial and commercial license, no ready-mixed concrete professional contracting qualification, did not pass the environmental protection department acceptance and approval, has not yet obtained the establishment of the case of illegal supply of commodity concrete to Fengcheng Power plant Phase III expansion project. The production manager did not have the relevant knowledge and experience of concrete production, and the internal laboratory staffing did not meet the specified requirements. The key links of production are not strictly controlled, admixtures are not added in strict accordance with the concrete mix ratio, and concrete is supplied without pouring application.
Local "protective umbrellas" are held accountable in accordance with the law
As with many illegal cement projects, local authorities were not immune to the blame throughout the incident. The investigation team also clearly pointed out serious problems in the competent authorities.
Among them, the main problems of Fengcheng Industry and Information Commission are:
First, illegal approval of the establishment of concrete mixing station. In the knowledge that Fengcheng Dingli Building materials company borrowings the name of "Henan second construction Feng power third phase project Department", non-self-established mixing station, did not solicit land resources, planning, construction, environmental protection and other departments of the case, does not meet the conditions of the Fengcheng Dingli Building materials Company concrete mixing plant issued the conclusion of "basically meet", and illegally approved the establishment of Fengcheng Dingli Building materials company mixing plant.
Second, poor supervision of Fengcheng Dingli building Materials company. Did not seriously perform the duties of industry supervision and management, the Fengcheng Dingli Building Materials company in April 2016 has not obtained the establishment of the approval, did not obtain the environmental acceptance of the approval, did not obtain the construction of ready-mixed concrete professional contracting qualification, industrial and commercial business license did not grant the "commercial concrete production, sales" scope of the case, illegal construction, production and sales of ready-mixed concrete behavior oversight, loss of place.
The main responsibility of the Fengcheng government is to violate the relevant regulations, in the case that the Fengcheng Dingli Building materials Company does not have the required conditions, the Fengcheng Industry and information Technology Committee has not performed the corresponding procedures, illegal intervention, exceeding its authority to agree with the Fengcheng Industry and information Technology Committee to approve the establishment of the Fengcheng Dingli Building Materials company mixing station.
