In the renewal project of Pasila in Helsinki, Finland a new Tripla centre will be constructed to the area of middle-Pasila. Tripla is a gigantic construction project – a total of three blocks of the whole, where offices, shopping centre, apartments, hotels, cultural premises, public transport terminal and car parking facilities are being built. YIT Construction Ltd. chose MariMatic® to build MetroTaifun® Solid Waste Collection System for collection and conveying of waste in Tripla.
Environmental friendliness and energy efficiency have been the starting points for designing the new urban centre Tripla. The waste traffic will be handled automatically by the solid waste collection system. The system increases the sorting of waste and reduces the need for waste rooms and waste bins. Also, hygiene and odor problems are reduced when the waste is conveyed with strong vacuum air flow through a closed pipe centrally to the waste transfer station.
MariMatic is responsible for designing and construction of the solid waste collection system, and also for the service and maintenance after commissioning. The system will be built to serve also the living area Ratapihakorttelit and tower areas Tornialueet, which will be built next to Tripla.
MetroTaifun is already employed in the expanding areas of Tampere, Vantaa and Espoo in Finland, and in Vällingby Parkstad in Sweden. MetroTaifun projects are also ongoing in Helsinki, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark.and China, and in Saudi-Arabia where MariMatic builds the world’s biggest vacuum conveying system. A system for collecting laundry, in addition to waste, is implemented in Malmi Hospital, Finland. MariMatic supplies vacuum conveying systems also for transporting food waste in the food industry and kitchens.
