PE pressure sewer system from Harjavalta to the city of Pori, Finland
PE pressure sewer system from Harjavalta to the city of Pori
sewer pipe line between Harjavalta and Pori is on time. The pipe line
started in Harjavalta with pipe diameter of 400 mm. The first part of
the pipe line was 8 kilometers long. When the pipe line reached to town
of Nakkila the pipe diameter expanded to 500 mm due to increased volume
of waste water. The second part of the pipe line with the bigger pipe
diameter was 11 kilometers and the destination was the sewage treatment
plant in Ulvila. Now in the city of Pori the pipe line has reached to
the end. The third and the last part of the pipe line was carried out
710 mm diameter pipe. The length of the last part was 11 kilometers.
The purpose of the new pressure
sewer pipe line is to reduce the stress of river Kokemäenjoki. Now all
the waste water from towns of Harjavalta, Nakkila, Ulvila and Pori are
handled in the sewerage treatment plant in Pori. Also one of goals is to
reduce the number of sewerage treatment in the area of the new sewer
The winter has created a
challenging working environment for the contractor Maa- ja vesirakennus
Kiri Oy. When the temperature is below – 15 ° C the installation has to
be stopped due to polyethylene pipe cannot be handled in such cold
weather. – There hasn’t been winter like this for two years, says Timo
Kiri, site superviser. Occasionally the installation site had to be
closed down due to weather but we still are going to be finished at the
end of June, right on time.
The last part of pipe line is
going to be installed with No-Dig method. No-Dig methods are used
specially in park areas and going under roads. The surface of the soil
does not have to dig up and therefore it causes less harm for traffic,
landscape and people. - There has been many challenges on
the way but this is so unique project in Finland that in overall this
has been really interesting project, Timo Kiri sums up.

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.

To rebuild an office building located in the heart of Amsterdam into 150 appartments in a relatively short time is definitely a big challenge.
Rapid action was critical when a sewage collector broke in Warsaw, Poland, causing a massive waste spill into the Vistula River. Uponor Infra’s crew worked 24 hours a day in order to stop the pollution of the river. A temporary pipeline was produced, delivered and connected in just eight days.
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.
Thanks to swagelining technology, it was possible to carry out most of the water line modernisation works in the centre of the city of Łódź, in a built-up area, along traffic lanes with heavy traffic of motor vehicles and trams.
Construction of storm water collectors in Nowe Polkowice is one of the stages of a big investment concerning the drainage of the district.
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 where PE pipes were used.
