Nordecon completes water and sewerage pipelines ahead of schedule in Loo

The last week of 2011 saw Nordecon AS complete construction and reconstruction work on the water and sewerage pipelines in the town of Loo, to a total cost of 1.75 million euros. Installation of the pipes, which was complicated by the limestone-rich ground in the area, was nevertheless completed ahead of the deadline.

The last week of 2011 saw Nordecon AS complete construction and reconstruction work on the water and sewerage pipelines in the town of Loo, to a total cost of 1.75 million euros. Installation of the pipes, which was complicated by the limestone-rich ground in the area, was nevertheless completed ahead of the deadline.

"The biggest challenge we faced on the site was how hard the ground was we had to break through," explained Erkki Suurorg, a member of the management board of Nordecon AS. "And looking back on what we've achieved, we've good reason to be proud of ourselves - despite the problems it threw up, we finished the job a good week ahead of schedule. And none of our work came at the expense of the water and sewerage systems in the area, which all kept working as normal while we got on with things."

The project, which was launched in 2010, involved the digging of 14 km of trenches, the installation of 22 km of pipeline and the construction of two waste water pumping stations.

Completion of the project means that the residents of Loo will now enjoy an uninterrupted supply of clean drinking water and collection of all waste water while facing fewer environmental risks. Around 2100 people in the town now have access to drinking water which is perfectly safe and meets all requirements.

The project was commissioned by Loo Vesi OÜ, with design work provided by Akvalius OÜ and supervision exercised by Infragate Eesti AS, Tallinna Linnaehituse AS and Taalri Varahaldus AS.
