Stora Enso Nymölla mill biogas facility, Nymölla, Sweden
Uponor Infra Project Services is back at Stora Enso Nymölla Mill
A sustainable and reliable solution
One of the major challenges for Stora Enso was the ground conditions in the industrial area and what kind of pipes would be found and in what condition they were, when they began to dig up the existing infrastructure in the area. You must also pass with the infrastructure in very narrow passages both above and below ground. Challenges in some passages had to be solved as the ground work started.
- Nymölla Mill is dependent on competent suppliers for these types of work. Uponor Infra Projektservice and PEAB Anläggning are collaborating on this project. We are very pleased that the contractors are collaborating and finding the best solutions and that we can rely on Uponor Infra's extensive experience and expertise of similar projects, which means that we can concentrate on our core business, says Ingemar Persson, project manager for new constructions at Nymölla Mill .
Sustainable, safe and flexible piping systems for the fuel supply of the future
In 2008, discussions started about a biogas plant in the Nymölla area. The plan was then that the plant would be operated under the auspices of Nymölla Mill, but they made a "retake" in the discussions and therefore contacted Gasum for production and sale of biogas. Nymölla Bruk's part of the project was to supply the biogas plant with wastewater with the right temperature for the production of biogas and for Gasum to operate and own the plant. Nymölla Mill will make an energy saving because the wastewater is already partially treated in the biogas plant when it reaches the mill's own treatment basins. In this case, it will be a smart and environmentally friendly solution.
- The project also feels right in time, say Ingemar and Henric. The need for imported fossil fuel is reduced. What the biogas plant will produce corresponds to 8.6 million liters of petrol / year, which in turn corresponds to 200 trucks' annual consumption of fuel, say Henric and Ingemar.
With sustainable, safe and flexible piping systems, Uponor Infra contributes to the fuel supply of the future. The work with the biogas plant and infrastructure at the mill will be completed in 2021 and Uponor Infra's part of the project consists of deliveries of products, drawings, dimensioning, field service and test printing of 5 km of pipelines.
New dry land fish farm which will produce 3,200 tonnes of rainbow trout annually is being build in Eckerö in the Åland Islands. Uponor Infra has provided design assistance and delivers the pipes and is responsible for their installation and welding.
continuously developing expertise. The aim on this occasion was to provide a seawater intake cooling system – a pipeline, intake structure and chlorination line – for the 420MW extension of the Pagbilao Coal Fired Power Plant on Luzon Island in the Philippines.
Weholite’s ability to withstand external wear, such as friction against the seabed, was an important criterion when the outfall pipe of Stora Enso’s pulp and paper mill in Nymölla, southern Sweden, had to be replaced.
The technological pipelines transporting the brine washed out during the construction of underground gas storage facility followed by its discharge into the Puck Bay.
Weholite technology was used for the construction of a penstock (water transmission pipeline) for a new small hydro power plant in the city of Cieszyn.
For almost 20 years, Uponor Infra has assisted the Polish mining conglomerate KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. in modernising Europe’s largest tailings pond.
For many years Uponor Infra has suppplied KGHM with high-quality polyethylene piping systems that transport water and slurry.
Uponor Infra has been delivering for the last dozen or so years the PEHD systems for surface drainage of brown coal mine
Slotted drainage VipLiner module made by Uponor Infra has been chosen to build a drainage system for heat and power station of Gdynia.
The district cooling system in Helsingborg involves the streamlining of current production. By means of seawater and using heat from the district heating network to power an absorption cooling unit, district cooling provides much better environmental values than electric cooling units. The district cooling station is an efficient source of cooling for buildings, industrial facilities and shopping centres.
