Location: Turku
Period: 2005 - 2009

In 2005, Slamex signed a subcontract with YIT to supply process equipment to a new underground wastewater treatment plant in Kakolanmäki, Turku. The project was exceptional in the sense that the plant and the machinery were installed on several floors inside rock.

The commissioning of the plant began towards the end of 2008, and the plant was operational at the beginning of 2009. The plant processes the wastewater of the city of Turku and its nine neighbouring municipalities. It is operated by Turun seudun puhdistamo Oy.

In the Turku wastewater treatment plant project, the delivery included equipment for pre-treatment of wastewater, and for conveying, washing, drying and pressing solids separated from water. In addition, Slamex supplied equipment for the separation, washing, and drying of sand.

Most of the equipment was tailored to the needs of the client. For example, the delivery included an unusually long 35-metre belt conveyor, and some 10 screw conveyors that carry solids separated from water from the uppermost floor of the unit to a level more than 20 metres below.

Slamex supplied the equipment with comprehensive installation, start-up, and maintenance instructions.
Equipment delivered by Slamex for the project includes:
• Bar Screen
• MonoScreen
• Screw Wash Press
• Sand Washer
• Sand Removal Unit
• Shaftless Screw Conveyor
• Belt Conveyor
