Apr 27, 2016: WABAG has won a Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) order in Kathmandu, Nepal for a value of INR 141 crores (>18 million Euro). The order which will be funded by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) also includes Operation & Maintenance of the WWTP for a period of 10 years. This is the second order secured by the company from Nepal, the first one being the Melamchi Water Treatment Plant order which is funded by JICA.
The scope of the order includes Rehabilitation and Expansion of Wastewater Treatment Plant at Guheshwori in Nepal. WABAG will be carrying out rehabilitation and expansion of the WWTP while the existing plant will be kept operational. The Plant which was constructed in 2002 to treat an average flow of 16,200 m3/d, post rehabilitation and expansion, will double the capacity to 32,400 m3/d. The salient feature of the plant would include generation of power from bio-gas produced out of the sludge.
Commenting on this order, Mr. S Natrajan, Head of Sales, India Cluster said, “We have kick started the new financial year with an ADB funded order from Nepal. I am happy that the focus of the team on targeted geographies is yielding good results.”
