WehoPipe pipes PE100 PN23 670x84,3 - 355m

The existing steel pipelines due to the frequent breakdowns strongly degrading natural environment required a modernisation. The works could be carried out during the only annual 7-day long repair period. In 2013 IKS Solino announced the tender for the renovation of the brine pipeline in section Przyjma-Janikowo between the discharge chambers S-5 and S-6. Uponor Infra was a supplier of specialist high-pressure pipelines  PEHD WehoPipe PE100 PN 23 670x84,3 for that investment. The  deliveries were made under emergency procedure (express delivery) after another producer was recalled from the construction site as a result of delivery of defective pipes.

The first delivery took place after 4 days from the formal submission of the order. The entire delivery was executed within the following 4 days including the deliveries made on the days off work. The modernisation of the 355 m long pipeline section was carried out by means of static cracking method. The delivery date of the pipes was the key success factor of the entire investment. The express execution of the order allowed to reduce the actual time of laying the pipeline to 4 days.  The rapid speed of deliveries allowed to meet the planned production resumption date. The completion of the task by the planned deadline allowed the contractor to avoid enormous liquidated damages for defaulting on the completion deadline.

Att inte använda utvändiga betongvikter var av mycket stort intresse för Nymölla eftersom de inte kunde hantera installationen av utloppsledningen själva och att arbetet kunde utföras på installationsplatsen av Uponor Infra Projektservice, var avgörande faktorer för Nymölla i val av ledning.
