The city of Bucharest has selected a consortium composed of SUEZ, FCC - Aqualia to modernise the wastewater treatment plant and to build a treatment and sludge-to-energy plant in Glina, located south-east of the capital. With this contract, worth €111m for the consortium and €45m for SUEZ, the Group reinforces its presence in Eastern Europe.
The wastewater treatment plant in Glina will be rehabilitated and extended by FCC - Aqualia, in order to ultimately provide wastewater treatment services for the equivalent of 2.4 million inhabitants. The sludge will be transported to the future treatment and sludge-to-energy plant built by SUEZ, with a treatment capacity of 173 tonnes of dry matter per day.
This plant will have two treatment lines to recover the sludge in accordance with national and European standards. Degremont® Thermylis® technologies, developed by SUEZ, will be used to significantly reduce the volume of the sludge produced by the wastewater treatment plant by drying and then recovering energy, with a production of electricity used in part to power the plant.
The 28-month construction project will be completed at the end of 2019.
This new project in favour the circular economy represents a further step forwards in the Group’s development in this high-potential region.
