SUEZ Wins New Industrial Wastewater Treatment Project in Changshu (China) Contributing to the City’s High-Quality Socio-Economic Development

SUEZ, through a local joint venture*, was recently awarded a 30-year, build-and-operate contract for an industrial wastewater treatment plant in Changshu. This expands the already-broad strategic partnership between SUEZ and the City of Changshu, which spans a portfolio of water, wastewater, and waste management projects. The project will reinforce the high quality, environmentally sustainable development for Changshu’s economy.

Located in the Changshu Economic and Technological Development Zone, the project has a total investment of EUR over 37 million and a daily treatment capacity of 15,000 m3. The SUEZ joint venture is responsible for designing, constructing and operating the wastewater treatment plant, which will help the many chemical companies in the park meet even the strictest discharge standards. The treatment plant is expected to be commissioned in 2024. It will enhance the park’s integrated support services and protect the water environment.

Jin Ke, Chairman of Jiangsu Sino French Water, said, “For over 15 years, Changshu and SUEZ have forged a powerful partnership that has driven strong growth for the city’s water business. This new collaboration represents the diversification and upscaling of our cooperation. Together, we’ve won widespread industry recognition for service quality and operations management, and we expect the joint venture to add to our joint efforts in improving Changshu’s ecological environment through advanced technology, scientific management, and quality services.”
