Uponor Vault cleans the storm water, Norrköping, Sweden
Keeping the Baltic Sea clean
Uponor Vault no. 2 = 3000 x 6000 mm
Tailormade solutions on site
A three-step process
The Uponor Vault effectively collects sediment and particlebound contaminants carried by stormwater run-offs. The first purification step consists of a coarse grid where coarser particles such as leaves and branches are captured. After the coarse grid, there is a sediment pocket that collects sediment from the stormwater. The final step consists of 12 tailor-made pipe filters – the number of filters is set based on the maximum flow the vault should have – with Filtrate P (Filtralite). The water is forced through the filters before it flows out of the vault and into the recipient. The goal is that before ending up in the Ljura Stream, the water is so clean that it does not exceed the EIA environmental quality standard. “The most harmful kind of stormwater is the so-called ‘first flush’ from the top layer of the asphalt that comes with heavy rain. Among other things, it contains heavy metals and salts
that flow directly into our stormwater chambers and then into rivers and streams. We want this first flush to get stuck in the filters,” explains Helena Aspdahl, Project Manager at Nodra AB. “This is a pilot project to investigate the purification effect of the vault by taking samples of stormwater before and after the treatment. When we know more, we can decide if maybe a different type of filter or an adjustment of some kind is needed. Also, we have to consider how to most effectively maintain the vault,” says Helena Aspdahl.
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.
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.
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.
