Serneke Civil Engineering to extend the Ringsjöverket water treatment facility


Serneke Civil Engineering has signed a contract with Sydvatten regarding groundwork, construction and machinery as the capacity of the Ringsjöverket water treatment facility in the municipality of Eslöv is expanded. The project is valued at approximately SEK 38 million.

Sydvatten’s facility at Ringsjöverket was built in the early 1960s and has gradually been expanded to include the current 18 filtration basins, the last two of which were constructed in 2014. With new areas being connected to the system and as the population grows, the production of the water treatment facility has been approaching its capacity and now needs expanding. Serneke Civil Engineering’s contract entails new construction of two “slow sand filters” for drinking water treatment and a pipe gallery.

“We are pleased to have been chosen to develop Ringsjöverket. This project is in line with our strategy, which includes a special focus on water supply and sewerage, as well as on the process industry for major clients,” says Calle Magnusson, Construction Manager at Serneke Civil Engineering.

Ringsjöverket produces drinking water for the communities of Eslöv, Helsingborg, Höganäs, Kavlinge, Landskrona, Lomma, Lund, Svalöv and Ängelholm, as well as parts of Malmö and Staffanstorp.

Via the Bolmen Tunnel, an average 1,400 liters of raw water reach Ringsjöverket per second.

“It feels good to be able to get started! We need the increased capacity that two new filters will give us,” says Staffan Björk, Project Manager at Sydvatten AB.

Construction is to commence in the spring of 2019 and is scheduled for completion in the spring of 2020.

The order value of approximately SEK 38 million is included in order bookings for the second quarter of 2019.
