The South African energy provider Eskom is building one of the world's largest coal-fired power station, 400 km north from Johannesburg in Medupi. It has a power of 4800 MW and consists of six 800 MW blocks. The power station contains mostmodern baghouse systems used for dust reduction.

The German engineering office Prof. Schmidt & Partner, a long-term customer of Dlubal software, was charged by Balcke-Dürr, a German company producing industrial filter systems, to perform the structural analysis and calculation of the baghouse system including flue and clean gas duct, supporting structure and staircase.

The engineers were especially challenged by South African construction rules as well as semifinished parts (cross-sections) that had to be taken into account. The comprehensive cross-section database of RFEM was very helpful for finding appopriate solutions.
