Water supply and treatment

Water supply and treatment

We implement water towers as well as water supply plant and wastewater treatment plant projects. We also construct water power plants. 

So far, all wastewater treatment plants built in bedrock in Finland have been completed by YIT. In addition to the Blominmäki wastewater treatment plant currently under construction in Espoo, YIT has built the Viikinmäki plant in Helsinki and the Kakolanmäki plant in Turku, both of which are also underground facilities. YIT also carried out the excavation work on the ongoing Mikkeli wastewater treatment plant project and the first phase of excavation for the Tampere Sulkavuori central wastewater treatment plant. We are also expanding the Henriksdal wastewater treatment plant in Stockholm. YIT’s past projects in this field also include wastewater treatment plants in Russia. For example, in 2005, YIT built the St Petersburg southwestern wastewater treatment plant, which plays an important role in the protection of the Baltic Sea.

Over 100 years of experience in water towers

We have over 100 years of experience in water supply construction. Over the years, we have built already 119 water towers or more than one each year. Latest of the water towers build by us is a water tower in Hiekkaharju, Vantaa.

Water supply construction and water towers in particular have been our special competence from the start. We have also constructed water supply plants abroad, for example in Iraq, Jordan and Saudi Arabia.
