LEMMINKÄINEN SIGNS AN AGREEMENT FOR THE INFRA PROJECT IN HENRIKSDAL WASTEWATER TREATMENT PLANT IN STOCKHOLM
Lemminkäinen and Stockholm Vatten AB have signed a new agreement for the rock engineering work in Henriksdal wastewater treatment plant in Stockholm. The rock engineering project includes excavation about 200 000 cubic metres. The work will begin at the end of October 2017, and it will be completed in August 2019. The value of the agreement is approximately EUR 30 million.
Lemminkäinen has made preparatory tunnel and rock engineering work in Henriksdal since 2016. The new agreement is a part of the rebuilding and capacity improvement of the underground Henriksdal wastewater treatment plant which is needed in the fast-growing city of Stockholm. With the project, Stockholm Vatten is able to install new technology that will increase the capacity of the plant and improve the quality of the water.
The project will take place in a vibration-sensitive environment where there are large residential areas. A demanding infra project needs special expertise in rock engineering.
“We are looking forward to continue our co-operation with Lemminkäinen in several rock engineering projects in Henriksdal in the future,” says project leader Henrik Algotsson from Stockholms framtida avloppsrening SFA, Stockholm Vatten.
The Henriksdal wastewater treatment plant is the largest in Sweden and one of the largest in Europe. It serves approximately one million people and treats approx. 2/3 of the municipal wastewater of the Stockholm area. It is also one of the world’s largest wastewater treatment plants located inside rock.
