Renovation of the sewage collector, Swarzewo, Poland

Optimal solution for different types of loads

One of the most popular seaside towns is Władysławowo. Poland's northernmost town is home to 10,000 people, while around 300,000 holidaymakers visit every year. Waste from Władysławowo is transported via a DN600 cast-iron pumping pipeline to the Swarzewo wastewater treatment plant, which normally treats 5,000m3/day, while in summer this amount increases almost threefold (14,000 m3). This, of course, has to do with the thriving summer tourism in the area.

Tight-fit renovation - the optimal solution

As the collector pipe is very important for the wastewater management in the Wladyslawowo area, it was decided that basically the entire interceptor would be renewed. In preparing to carry out the investment, the contracting authority, Spółka Wodno-Ściekowa Swarzewo, carried out a detailed analysis of the possible techniques to be used, taking into account the advantages and disadvantages of various solutions. The tight-fitting method (or similar relining with PE pipes) was chosen as the optimal method.

Two failures in one year

The Swarzewo plant is located on the shores of the Bay of Puck and is crucial for the protection of the coastal waters of the Baltic Sea. The collector pipe leading to it from Władysławowo was built in 1986 and failed twice in 2019. The first occurred in June when a 4 m long crack appeared in a 6 m long section of pipe in Władysławowo. The section could not withstand the increase in sewage flow (summer visitors had already arrived in the town and storms had also passed over the area). The waste water was first collected in a holding tank, but then had to be discharged into the Bay of Puck. Another time sewage was diverted into the bay in December (the scale, however, was much smaller). This time, the accident – a leak – occurred at the Swarzewo sewage treatment plant (a new RK collector pipe leaked during a sewer repair).

At the tender stage, the contracting authority stressed that the rehabilitation should ensure the self-supporting nature of the canal structure. The contracting authority pointed out that the circumferential stiffness and the thickness of the rehabilitation walls should be adopted on the basis of theoretical calculations based on actual data (foundation depth, groundwater, dynamic loads), and the calculations in the design should take into account all types of loads acting on the pipeline.

In the tender (design and build formula), the offer of the consortium of G.T. companies was considered the most favourable. DESIGN by Sp. z o.o. and G.T. DESIGN by Tadeusz Galisz. The general contractor entrusted the supply of structural class A ducting to Uponor Infra sp. z o.o.

What is the tight-fitting method?

 The installation technology consists of pulling long sections of PEHD pressure pipe into the old pipe, with the outer diameter of the pipe to be introduced originally being equal to or slightly larger than the inner diameter of the pipe to be repaired. Then, after welding, the pipe is pulled through the reducer so that the outside diameter is reduced and it can be inserted into the pipeline to be repaired. The pulling force is then released and the PEHD pipe, after a relaxation process, presses tightly against the inner wall of the old pipeline. The advantage of this technology is that a small reduction in the inside diameter of the repaired duct is achieved, which, with a significant reduction in surface roughness, significantly improves throughput. There is also no need to fill in the space between the old and new pipe, the renewed pipe does not require further repairs and maintenance. An additional benefit is the structural reinforcement of the repaired sewer - the new pipeline is self-supporting, carrying the load.

Renovation of a collector pipe by the sea

Deliveries of pipes for the described investment started in September 2021. For the renovation of the Władysławowo-Swarzewo collector pipe, it was decided to use WehoPipe PE100 DN600x23.0 PN6.3 SDR26 pressure pipes with a total length of 2,530 m. They were transported to the worksite in 12.5 m sections. The pipes were joined together by butt welding. A DN630 welding machine was used for this purpose. Deliveries were completed in February 2022.

The use of PEHD pipes has resulted in 100 per cent leak-tightness, durability and a collector pipe life of more than 100 years. Systems made of this plastic are resistant to abrasion, corrosion and chemicals. The fact that they are used, for example, as process pipelines for chemical plants or cooling water pipelines in power plants, must work on the imagination. So, as you can see, residents and tourists can look forward to this year's holidays with peace of mind.

Hybridiratkaisuja hulevesien hallintaan

Suomessa oli herätty siihen, että hulevedet kuormittavat vesistöjä ravinteilla ja raskasmetalleilla. Lahden Vesijärvessä tilanne oli erityisen paha fosforin osalta. Lahden kaupunki näki Ranta-Kartanossa tilaisuuden suunnitella asuinalue niin, että osa alueesta varataan hulevesien käsittelyyn. Ranta-Kartanon hulevesien hallinnassa testataan Uponorin valmistamia suodattimia, jotka viivyttävät ja puhdistavat valumavesiä.

Helsingin Energian rakennuttaman Kamppi-Erottaja-Kruununhaka -tunnelin turvallisuusvaatimukset ovat huipputasoa. Urakoitsija Destia valitsi putkijatkoksiin ent. KWH Thermopipen TSC-hitsausmuhvit. Lopputuloksena on putkilinja, jossa eriste- ja pintamateriaali on yhtenäinen.

Suoraa hyötyä kaarista

Lahti Energia käyttää työmaillaan ensimmäisenä Suomessa kaariputkia. Kokemukset ovat olleet erittäin hyviä.

Lahden Vipusenkadulla uusittiin kaukolämpöverkkoa. Kaivantoon on laskettu isoja kahdentoista ja kuudentoista metrin DN 300 -putkia. Hitsaajat ovat ryhtymässä töihin. Jokin jää kuitenkin askarruttamaan ohikulkijan mieltä.

Samaan aikaan toisaalla, keskustasta Launeelle johtavalla kaukolämpölinjalla operoidaan hieman tuhdimpien DN 400 -putkien kanssa. Täälläkin sama juttu. Aivan kuin kaikki putket eivät olisi ihan suoria?

Weholite limits overflows and pollution in London

Uponor’s Weholite technology was the key solution in a unique project in London, where the Lee Tunnel and Thames Tideway tunnel have the task of capturing an average of 39 million tonnes of sewage a year from the 35 most polluting combined sewer overflows (CSOs). An upgraded pipeline system was designed to reduce the number of overflows – and their environmental impact – from the sewers and treatment systems serving London. A particular aim is to limit pollution from the sewers and treatment systems connected to the Beckton and Crossness sewage treatment works.

In 1960, the Fifalla River, which flows through Valdemarsvik into the Valdemars Bay, was culverted. At the end of the 19th century, Lundbergs Läderfabrik was built over the last part of the river at the outlet, but in 1960 a culvert came into place, up to the factory under Storgatan for which the Swedish Transport Administration is responsible.

Unique design ensures controlled stormwater drainage

Unique design ensures controlled stormwater drainage

In Slagelse Municipality, there are requirements for the drainage of rainwater and wastewater to be separated, and therefore it was important that the wastewater solution on the street, Nordre Ringgade, was also updated in accordance with current legislation. The client has received an approved solution where the wastewater from the commercial property in no. 59 has been separated from the rainwater. The rainwater is now diverted directly from the 2,500 m2 car park.
