Renovation

Reliable technologies for renovating damaged pipelines, manholes and culverts

Most of the water and sewage infrastructure in Europe are nearing the end of their service life. Numerous investment projects in 1970s and 1980s were based on reinforced concrete, steel and cast iron pipes, which now need continuous repair, renovation or replacement. While repair is a temporary solution and replacement an expensive one, renovation seems a reasonable compromise. Such projects involve, among others, different renovation methods by means of polyethylene pipes.

Uponor Infra is one of the most experienced manufacturers and suppliers of polyethylene pipes since its history goes back to 1950s. Since 1976 the company has also developed pipe systems for renovation of damaged pipelines, used for repairing water pipelines as well as sewage pressure and gravity systems or technological pipelines.

The renovation methods using Uponor Infra systems have become one of the most reliable technologies in the market. The fact that the pipes are made of polyethylene has got numerous benefits. The renovated canal or pipeline is corrosion, abrasion and impact resistant, guarantees long-term operation and is characterized by low roughness coefficient ‘k’. These methods of renovation require installation trenches only, which helps minimize car and pedestrian traffic disturbance. What is more, during the renovation process water and sewer system can normally operate and – in most cases – there is no need for drainage.

Choosing the optimal renovation method

Prior to renovation works, an in-depth analysis of pipeline technical condition is required. Before choosing a particular renovation method one must:

  • determine the structural and hydraulic condition of the damaged pipeline
  • assess degree of damage to the pipeline
  • prepare a detailed calculation of pipeline parameters, including location, side connections, dimensions and material used to build it
  • choose the most optimal renovation method. 

Uponor Infra can offer a range of several renovation technologies:
