Uki-Kustavi is a water utility company cooperative that was established in 2006. The main project for the cooperative in 2009 was to install a pressure water pipe line from Suukari to Humalkari. The main line is 14 km long and together with all the 170 branches, the length of the pressure water line in total is 66 km.
The most interesting part of the project is that the pressure pipe line is installed into the sea, and even to the bottom of the sea. When working at the sea, the weather is always the key question. It can delay the installation radically.
Kustavin Asentajat Ky won the installation contract. The excavator contractor of the project was Vestiö Oy. The water pressure pipe used in installation was Uponor’s ProFuse pressure pipe for drinking water. The diameter of the pipe is ø 110 mm.
