Sea outlet of treated wastewater, Swarzewo, Poland

Sea outlet of treated wastewater

A sea outlet of treated wastewater was initiated in Swarzewo. It is yet another of the many environmentally friendly projects that have recently been carried out in Poland.  Like other projects aiming to make local water and sewer systems compliant with strict EU standards, the success of this project also depended heavily upon the quality of the materials used, as well as the reduction of cost and construction time.  The use of WehoPipe PE-HD pipes made it possible to fulfil all of the requirements.

Uponors rolle

PE pipes WehoPipe DN710mm SDR22 – 1,160m

Underwater pipeline – a sea outlet is part of a larger ecological project in the region of the Baltic Sea, called "Final reorganisation of waste management in the agglomeration of Puck", associated also with the extension of the wastewater treatment plant, extension of the sewerage in Swarzew, and discharge of treated sewage into the sea. The investment is intended to protect the inshore land and waters of the Baltic Sea using controlled discharge of waste which has parameters required by the law and to enhance the investment and tourist potential of Puck, Władysławowo and the neighbouring areas.

For the project, Uponor Infra manufactured nearly 1.2 km or PE pipes – WehoPipe PE 100 SDR 22 DN 710. The pipes were delivered in 15-metre sections and then butt-welded on the wharf of the contractor. The contract also obliged the company to provide welding machines and installation crew, who made most of the joints including a non-standard fitting (diffuser). The next step was the installation of concrete blocks on the pipeline to facilitate the sinking operation. The weight of the blocks was so designed that the collector, filled with water, was safely placed on the riverbed. The discharge pipeline was towed by tugboat to the installation place and submerged.

Uponor Infra has been delivering for years the pipe systems to discharge the treated wastewater deep into the sea. At present the sea outlets are a standard solution and are very popular in Europe. They used to be made from steel, but along with the development of new materials this type of pipelines are now practically made only in PE technology. Polyethylene pipes are flexible, which makes them easily adaptable in various soil conditions and increases their resistance to vibrations, load and soil movement. Due to their low weight, PE pipes are easy and quick to install. They can be manufactured in considerably longer lengths than traditional pipes, which significantly shortens the installation time. What’s more, polyethylene pipes have superior chemical resistance and don’t corrode, which is a key factor when it comes to applications in salt water. For this reason polyethylene gained a worldwide recognition as the best material for the construction of low pressure underwater pipelines or the transport of water and sewage.

En nem og pålidelig regnvandsløsning

En nem og pålidelig regnvandsløsning

Det nye laste- og parkeringsområde på Volvos centrallager i Vantaa skulle asfalteres, hvilket krævede en pålidelig løsning til effektivt at kanalisere regnvand væk fra området. Uponors nye IQ-infiltrationsrør blev valgt som løsningen til at infiltrere og tilbageholde regnvand på grunden.

Unikt design sikrer kontrolleret afledning

I Slagelse Kommune stiller man krav til at afledning af regnvand og spildevand adskilles, og derfor var det vigtigt, at også spildevandsløsningen på Nordre Ringgade blev opdateret i henhold til gældende lovgivning. Bygherren har fået en godkendt løsning, hvor spildevandet fra erhvervsejendommen i nr. 59 er blevet separeret fra regnvandet. Regnvandet ledes nu bort direkte fra den 2.500 m2 store parkeringsplads.

New Uponor IQ –Storm water system - Sustainability and Quality in Road Infrastructure

In December 2011 Central Finland´s ELY –centre (The Centre for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment) started significant road constructing project in Jyväskylä. The aim is to create a new route between highways 18, 9 and 4, which helps reduce traffic jams and smoothes commutation. Uponor was chosen to be one of the suppliers due to our delivery capacity and overall cost efficiency.

City of Lahti is building new neighborhood called Ranta-Kartano. While they were constructing basic infrastucture the city saw the possibilty to reserve some ground space for storm water management. Now there is a test running for different kind of storm water management. Uponor is involved with new type of storm water filter.

Located in Finnish Lapland, on the Ounasjoki River, the village of Kaukonen now treats its wastewater with a new WehoPuts 400 treatment plant. As in many rural areas, long distances make village treatment plants a more sensible alternative than transporting wastewater tens of kilometres to the nearest town.

Clean drinking water for 17,000 scouts

Roihu 2016 – the 7th International Finnjamboree organised by Suomen Partiolaiset - Finlands Scouter ry, was held at the Evo campsite in Hämeenlinna on 20–28 July 2016. A camp for 17,100 people was built in a forest area owned by Metsähallitus. Some 3,000 participants arrived from abroad – from about 40 different countries. Uponor delivered 7,600 metres of pipes to the area. The pipes were used to supply clean water and to lead grey water away from the area in a controlled manner.

Weholite limits overflows and pollution in London

Uponor’s Weholite technology was the key solution in a unique project in London, where the Lee Tunnel and Thames Tideway tunnel have the task of capturing an average of 39 million tonnes of sewage a year from the 35 most polluting combined sewer overflows (CSOs). An upgraded pipeline system was designed to reduce the number of overflows – and their environmental impact – from the sewers and treatment systems serving London. A particular aim is to limit pollution from the sewers and treatment systems connected to the Beckton and Crossness sewage treatment works.

In 1960, the Fifalla River, which flows through Valdemarsvik into the Valdemars Bay, was culverted. At the end of the 19th century, Lundbergs Läderfabrik was built over the last part of the river at the outlet, but in 1960 a culvert came into place, up to the factory under Storgatan for which the Swedish Transport Administration is responsible.
