New water tower in Helsingborg, Sweden

NCC has signed a cooperation agreement with NSVA (Nordvästra Skånes Vatten och Avlopp AB) to build a new water tower in the city of Helsingborg. In the initial phase, the parties will work together on the architectural plans in order to agree on an estimated costing for the construction project.

The water tower, which is being built to secure future water distribution in north-west Skåne, has a pioneering design that calls to mind a modern aqueduct. In addition to the water tower itself, the assignment also includes two service reservoirs and a technical building.

The water tower will be 40 meters tall and comprise a ring 90 meters in diameter that rests on 24 concrete columns. The water will flow through the ring for a good turnover of volume. The design of the water tower will be finalized jointly by NCC and NSVA during the detailed planning work, which is due to start immediately.

Construction work is expected to begin in 2018, with the new water tower up and running by 2020. Helsingborg's existing water tower in Fredriksdal, built in 1962, will remain in use even once the new water tower is operational.
