Sea outlet of treated wastewater, Swarzewo, Poland
Sea outlet of treated wastewater
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. Like other projects aiming to make local water and sewer systems compliant with strict EU standards, the success of this project also depended heavily upon the quality of the materials used, as well as the reduction of cost and construction time. The use of WehoPipe PE-HD pipes made it possible to fulfil all of the requirements.
Underwater pipeline – a sea outlet is part of a larger ecological project in the region of the Baltic Sea, called "Final reorganisation of waste management in the agglomeration of Puck", associated also with the extension of the wastewater treatment plant, extension of the sewerage in Swarzew, and discharge of treated sewage into the sea. The investment is intended to protect the inshore land and waters of the Baltic Sea using controlled discharge of waste which has parameters required by the law and to enhance the investment and tourist potential of Puck, Władysławowo and the neighbouring areas.
For the project, Uponor Infra manufactured nearly 1.2 km or PE pipes – WehoPipe PE 100 SDR 22 DN 710. The pipes were delivered in 15-metre sections and then butt-welded on the wharf of the contractor. The contract also obliged the company to provide welding machines and installation crew, who made most of the joints including a non-standard fitting (diffuser). The next step was the installation of concrete blocks on the pipeline to facilitate the sinking operation. The weight of the blocks was so designed that the collector, filled with water, was safely placed on the riverbed. The discharge pipeline was towed by tugboat to the installation place and submerged.Uponor Infra has been delivering for years the pipe systems to discharge the treated wastewater deep into the sea. At present the sea outlets are a standard solution and are very popular in Europe. They used to be made from steel, but along with the development of new materials this type of pipelines are now practically made only in PE technology. Polyethylene pipes are flexible, which makes them easily adaptable in various soil conditions and increases their resistance to vibrations, load and soil movement. Due to their low weight, PE pipes are easy and quick to install. They can be manufactured in considerably longer lengths than traditional pipes, which significantly shortens the installation time. What’s more, polyethylene pipes have superior chemical resistance and don’t corrode, which is a key factor when it comes to applications in salt water. For this reason polyethylene gained a worldwide recognition as the best material for the construction of low pressure underwater pipelines or the transport of water and sewage.

Porin ja Harjavallan välille valmistui massiivinen jätevesien siirtoviemäri.
Kuokkalaan avattiin marraskuussa 2013 kehäväylä. Väylälle asennettiin 2 kilometriä Uponorin IQ-hulevesiputkea, 250 kaivoa ja 5 kilometriä salaojaputkea.
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?
Butt welding by night of 900 mm pipes ensures stable operation of a district cooling solution in Copenhagen Harbour.
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.
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.
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.
