In a consortium with STRABAG, SUEZ has signed contracts for the design and construction of four wastewater treatment plants with Odvodnja, the water agency for the town of Porec. The contract, which is co-funded by the European Union to the tune of 78%, is worth a total of €38 million, of which €22 million for SUEZ.
The project covers the design and construction of four wastewater treatment stations, equipped with membrane bioreactors and with a total capacity of 137,500 population equivalent. The treated water will be reused for agricultural irrigation. The project also provides for the construction of an additional 62km of wastewater networks, the rehabilitation of 23km of the existing network and the construction of 52 pumping stations. The sludge from the treatment of the wastewater will be recovered by drying in the sun or by composting in units supplied by SUEZ. The four stations will be built simultaneously and should be completed by the end of 2017.
