Copenhagen Metro Line

Background

In Copenhagen’s city centre, work on the expansion of the Copenhagen Metro Line is underway, spanning 15km in length with 17 upgraded stations when complete which will improve commuting times.

The Overall Objective

The natural high water table and predominantly limestone geology, has caused a number of issues during construction. Siltbuster were tasked with treating slow settling groundwater laden with very slow settling Calcium Carbonate.

Solution

A number of Siltbuster chemical dosing systems with digital dosing systems, were quickly transported and installed on site to accurately treat the water with the use of coagulent’s and flocculant’s. The digital dosing systems were operated in conjunction with SCADA so that all data could be remotely monitored and controlled.
