Uponor WehoPanel structure 11 x 7 x 5 metre

New PE plastic structure ensures the safety of the area's residents for the next 100 years

When water levels rise and the wind gets up, Denmark’s fjord and coastal areas are in the danger zone for storm surges. The residents of Jyllinge Nordmark on Roskilde Fjord are painfully aware of this: far too many of them have been left standing in water up to their waist when the fjord and local streams flooded their homes. This has happened several times over the past decade.

After several years of political toing and froing, since 2018 a major stormwater protection project has been under way to shield the area against flooding in the future. The various coastal protection initiatives include a new pumping plant. The pumps are placed in a Wehopanel structure with exterior frames measuring 11 x 7 x 5 metres, and the aim is to control the discharge of excess water.

 

Long life in a salty environment

 Construction of the large coastal protection facility is now entering its final phase, with pump specialists from Sulzer putting the finishing touches on a brand new pumping plant. This will send excess water from the stream Værebro Å back into the fjord when the stream breaks its banks. Sulzer’s pumps are being installed in the specially made Wehopanel structure of polyethylene (PE) plastic, from Uponor Infra. The choice settled on a Wehopanel for a specific reason:

“When we put our solution out to tender, we specified that the structure had to be made of PE plastic. The pump structure from Uponor has a design life of over 100 years, and thanks to the material it can withstand chemical influence from the very salty water passing through the system. The Wehopanel material is particularly well suited to the application. Due to the large dimensions, it is advantageous that the structure can be prefabricated in just four parts at the factory, and then quickly and easily welded together in the excavation. The lightweight plastic material simplifies and shortens the process. That’s why we knew straight away that Uponor was the right company to deliver the necessary material,” explains Kenneth Larsen, Technical Manager at Sulzer. He continues:

“A system of this kind must not go wrong. This is why it was so important for us that Uponor’s solutions and results are so well documented, so we know we can rely on every component living up to our requirements. In combination with our state-of-the-art pumps, we’re delivering a total solution with extremely high operational reliability and many years of useful life.” 

 

A nationwide problem that’s only getting worse

 In connection with the new pump construction the stream Værebro Å has been diverted, and will be re-established later. Uponor is proud to be involved in the new coastal protection project in Jyllinge Nordmark – but is well aware, too, that the situation around Roskilde Fjord is far from the only one in Denmark. 

“The residents of Jyllinge Nordmark have repeatedly been plagued by extreme weather, resulting in flooded basements and costly damage. And Roskilde Fjord is not even one of the biggest risk areas in Denmark,” says Bent Rønfeldt, Project Engineer at Uponor Infra.

If you hope to find better news at the Danish Meteorological Institute, you’ll be disappointed. A report on future climate change in Denmark concluded that “climate changes are expected to increase towards 2100. This will mean higher temperatures, more winter precipitation, more frequent and more extreme weather events as well as sea level rise.” And: we can expect that the most severe precipitation events to date will pale in comparison to future water volumes.”

Sulzer’s pumping plant will be completed in February, and the coastal protection facility as a whole will be finished during the spring.

Rakokiven monitoimitaloon Lahden Nastolassa asennettiin Uponorin IQ-hulevesiratkaisu niin nopeasti, että se yllätti jokaisen mukana olleen.

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?

Ounasjoen kupeessa, Kittilän Kaukosen kylässä jätevedet käsitellään nyt uudessa WehoPuts 400 -puhdistamossa. Laajassa Lapinmaassa kyläpuhdistamoille olisi käyttöä muuallakin: välimatkat ovat pitkiä ja puhdistamot ovat usein järkevämpi vaihtoehto kuin jätevesien kuljettaminen kymmenien kilometrien päähän.

Weholite limits overflows and pollution in London

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.

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.
