Sustainable sewer pipeline with Ultra Rib 2 Blue, Lahti, Finland
Lahti Aqua installed their first Ultra Rib 2 Blue pipeline
“The size of this project made it suitable for pilot installation. We will gain good user experiences of this new product,” says Pekka Kaikkonen, Constructor Engineer at Lahti Aqua. Uponor has been a familiar partner to Lahti Aqua for decades. Kaikkonen says that it’s easy and safe to try out new innovations with a reliable partner. Earlier, Lahti has used pilot projects to test out products such as stormwater filters developed by Uponor.
Quality and durability are key
Lahti has set ambitious climate targets. It intends to be the first large Finnish city that is carbon neutral by 2025. “Sustainable construction in water supply hinges especially on lifecycle thinking and the durability and reliability of the solutions,” says Kaikkonen. He points out that the safety and quality of water supply are particularly important in Lahti, as the city is mainly in a groundwater area.
“This means that we must be extremely careful in choosing materials. It’s absolutely vital for us to be certain of the quality and durability of products when we’re seeking to lower carbon dioxide emissions. The Ultra Rib 2 Blue pipe provides another means of reducing the environmental load – it’s definitely a welcome innovation in the industry,” says Kaikkonen.

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. Now there is a test running for different kind of storm water management. Uponor is involved with new type of storm water filter.
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.
