Safe and Sustainable, Uppsala, Sweden
Safe and Sustainable
Uppsala is one of the oldest cities in Sweden. Today it is also one of the fastest-growing cities in the country. Over the next few years, completely new neighbourhoods with approximately 14,000 new homes will be built in southern areas of the city. Weholite ensures safe and reliable transportation of stormwater and waste water - and safety is of utmost importance because the newly installed pipelines will run through a water protection area.
Uppsala with its population of 170,000 is Sweden´s fourth-largest city, and today faces strong pressures to grow and develop. During the next few years, approximately 7,000 new homes will be built in Rosendal, a district located a few kilometres south of the city centre. In addition, plans to build approximately the same number of homes in Ulleraker, close to Rosendal, are being drafted. Since large parts of these districts do not have water supply or sewerage, the municipal water utility Uppsala Vatten och Avfall is building new main pipelines for both stormwater and waste water between the Rosendal, Kungsängen and Ulleraker districts.
Built to last for more than 100 years
The customer selected structured-wall Weholite for the pipes. Since the pipelines are being installed through a water protection area, it was essential that the pipe system has been proven to be thoroughly reliable and durable. Weholite is built to last for more than 100 years. Furthermore, it is efficient and fast to install thanks to its lightweight, long pipe lengths and prefabricated, customized and ready-to-install products. Uponor Infra has delivered 1,350 metres of Weholite pipes in dimensions of 500-1200 mm as well as 16 waste water manholes for the project.

A smart retention system for an anti-flooding solution
September 2018 saw the launch of the project for a stormwater drainage system in Rzeszów, almost 26 kilometres long, in the residential District of Budziwój, which partially coincides with the floodplain of the River Wisłok. One of the elements of this system is the retention canal. The project, scheduled for delivery by May 2020, will help to finally solve flooding problems which have been plaguing the residents of this region of Poland.
