Three major projects for water and wastewater treatment plants in Romania, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Turkey for a combined value of EUR 33.4 million have been awarded to Passavant-Roediger GmbH, a wholly owned German subsidiary of Drake & Scull International (DSI).
Under the terms of the Romanian agreement, Passavant-Roediger will undertake the execution of the civil, mechanical, electrical and SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) works.
This is as well as testing and commissioning for the rehabilitation and extension of wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) in the cities of Sinaia and Breaza and drinking water treatment plants in Comarnic and Sinaia.
The work is expected to be completed by 2015 and the company is also currently delivering wastewater Treatment Plants in the Romanian cities of Campina and Plopeni.
Passavant’s scope of work in Bosnia and Herzegovina will involve the rehabilitation of the Sarajevo wastewater treatment plant at Butila to increase its capacity to 170, 000 m3/day of wastewater per day to serve a population equivalent of 600,000.
Passavant-Roediger will process the design, undertake detailed engineering work, and procure mechanical, electrical, and automation equipments. Work on the project is expected to be completed by 2016.
As part of the contract, the company will construct an activated sludge plant with primary clarifiers, biological nitrification/denitrification and biological/chemical phosphorous removal and anaerobic stabilization of sludge in sludge digesters to treat 32,000 m3/day to serve a population equivalent of 185,000.
It was in 2009 when DSI acquired Passavant-Roediger in 2009 to enhance its capabilities in the region’s water and wastewater sector.
