Drainage system for heat and power station

Reference report as PDF

The heat and power plant in Gdynia struggled with choking drainage ducts and the resultant elevated level of ground water, which would lead to flooding of the underground levels of the facility. The construction of a classic drainage system using excavation methods was seriously challenged and even impossible in many places due to collisions with numerous underground systems as well as the protective zones of overhead power lines. As a result, a decision was taken to build a new drainage network in the trenchless technology with the use of jacking drainage VipLiner DN630mm modules from Uponor Infra.
