In Kosovo, regional water company Hidroregjioni Jugor has pre-awarded a contract to Aqualia, again through Aqualia Infraestructuras, for the construction of the Prizren treatment plant.
The €10.5 million contract is scheduled to be signed in January 2015 and is another first in the country for Aqualia. Once completed, the plant will treat the city’s wastewater with a capacity in the initial stage of an equivalent population of 50,000.
