The project will adopt a state-of-the-art ultra-filtration and reverse osmosis technology to treat the secondary domestic waste water to provide a consistent quality of water to various industries and the scope includes supply, laying and maintenance of MS Transmission main for conveying this reclaimed water to various industries.

The value of the EPC and O&M portion (for a period of 15 years) of the contract is INR 396 crores (EUR > 53 million)  and INR 198 Crores (EUR 27 million) respectively.
