Sweco has designed a solution to provide Billund Vand with a flexible, future-proof, energy-optimised and centralised wastewater system for years to come.
Customer: Billund Vand
Location: Billund and Grindsted
With a wish to utilise the resources inherent in wastewater, the utility of Billund Vand issued a call for tenders for a turnkey contract involving the closing down of the Billund Wastewater Treatment Plant and the transportation of the wastewater for treatment at the Billund BioRefinery in Grindsted.
As turnkey contractor, TC Anlæg joined forces with Sweco, Grundfos and Intego to design and carry out the overall centralisation project based on the framework specified in the tender documents. A reliable, fully functional system had to be ready for commissioning by November 2015.
Flexible, future-proof and energy-efficient solutions were the principal elements throughout the project. Sweco was responsible for the overall design of the centralisation system, the technical dimensioning, process calculations, optimisation and project planning of all parts of the transport system, as well as the regulatory processing and the conducting of an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA). Billund Vand has reduced its energy costs substantially, which ultimately benefits both the environment and the consumer.
A project of this dimension and complexity has made big demands on the collaboration between project team and client in order for the team to be able to deliver a faultless system that worked from the very beginning.
