SUEZ wins C. €1 billion wastewater treatment contract in Dongying chemical industry park in China
SUEZ NWS has formed a joint venture that will be responsible for the investment, construction and operation of the wastewater treatment plant with a capacity of 26,000 m3 per day. The plant will provide centralized treatment of all industrial wastewater streams in Dongying Chemical Industry Park. It will also have the capacity to meet the growing wastewater treatment demand from future park projects.
Dongying is an important oil base in China whose Industry Park hosts key players in the petrochemical industry. In recent years, the Park has striven to become a safe, high-end park in pursuit of green growth. In 2018, the total industrial output value of the Park exceeded RMB 100 billion.
Construction work will begin in late 2019 and be completed by late 2020. The joint venture will be in charge of operating the plant for a period of 48 years. The plant will be equipped with advanced treatment processes ensuring the production of high-quality treated wastewater in compliance with environmental standards in force, and the reuse of 40% of this water to supply the industries of the Park.
Wang Feng, Deputy Secretary of the Dongying District Party Committee and District Head, said: "We hope that SUEZ NWS will exert its rich experience in the construction, operation and management of wastewater treatment plants in this project to promote the centralized treatment of wastewater in the park and concentrate on emission to effectively improve the district’s environment. We also hope that it can improve the efficiency of water use, solve the predicament between industrial water supply and demand, and comprehensively accelerate the park’s upgrade."
