Swedish construction company Skanska has won a contract to build a wastewater treatment plant worth SEK640 million ($98.3 million) to provide treatment services for a mine in Peru.

The project will help to reuse wastewater in the mining process and avoid the use of fresh river water. Skanska will be in charge of the construction of the plant and four pump stations.

Work has already started and the project is expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2015. The client was not disclosed in the company release.
