In collaboration with YIT, Envac Scandinavia AB has been chosen to supply a waste suction system to the two new suburbs of Kalasatama and Jätkäsaari in Helsinki.
The client is the City of Helsinki through its two subsidiaries of Kalasataman jätteen putkikeräys Oy and Jätkäsaari jätteen putkikeräys Oy.
The Kalasatama project will comprise 20,000 people and 8,000 workplaces when it’s completed in 2030. The first part of the project, Jätkäsaari, comprises 1,000 apartments in the Utterhäll district, which will be completed at the end of 2011. At Jätkäsaari, homes for a total of 16,000 residents and 6,000 workplaces will be completed. The project is expected to be finished by 2030.
The system will handle four separate waste fractions: organic food waste, newspapers/paper, cardboard/corrugated cardboard and residual waste. The corrugated cardboard will be compacted using resizers and handled together with cardboard packaging in the same fraction.
