Uponor Vault cleans the storm water, Norrköping, Sweden

Keeping the Baltic Sea clean

Norrköping is located by the mouth of the Motala River in Bråviken Bay, an inlet of the Baltic Sea. “As a municipality so close to the sea, we generally face higher demands to reduce the number of pollutants released into our waters. In this case, we’re talking about the Baltic Sea, one of the most sensitive and polluted seas in the world, which is particularly affected by eutrophication. The requirements become stricter the closer to the coast you get. Further inland, the pollutants in streams and rivers have time to be naturally filtered through, for example, ditches, gravel and sand,” says Tommy Sandberg, Maintenance Engineer at the local water utility company Nodra AB.

Uponor Vault no. 1 = 3500 x 8000 mm
Uponor Vault no. 2 = 3000 x 6000 mm

Tailormade solutions on site

This is why Nodra has now installed a tailor-made Uponor Vault as a part of a climate project ongoing in the Smedby area in Norrköping. This project is called Smedby Klimatanpassning – Smedby Climate Adaptation. Among other things, it aims to take care of polluted stormwater before it reaches the Baltic Sea. With dimensions of 3,500 x 8,000mm, a maximum flow of 1,600 l/s, and an optimised purification flow of 160 l/s, this is the largest Uponor Vault installed in Sweden to date. The vault’s intake and outfall pipes measure 1,000mm. In addition to this, Nodra has also installed three Uponor Vaults in dimensions of 3,000 x 6,000mm in a new residential area in Norrköping, the Inner Harbour, to purify stormwater before it flows into the Motala River.
 
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.

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.
Safe water supply for an old shipyard and sawmill area

Safe water supply for an old shipyard and sawmill area

The Pateniemi waterfront area in Oulu, Northern Finland played a role in the history of Finnish industrialisation. In the mid-19th century, its shipyard built large merchant vessels, and later it was the location of one of the largest sawmills of its time. Now, the waterfront is entering a new era with the completion of a residential area for 2,500 inhabitants. Uponor Barrier PLUS pipes – which are both durable and non-permeable – ensure a safe supply of potable water in this area that was in industrial use for over 100 years.
