WABAG ensures water security for the people of Tagtabazar, Turkmenistan under difficult climatic conditions

WABAG Czech has successfully commissioned the Sojunaly WTP at Tagtabazar, Turkmenistan for our client ABY Kovser. The 15,000 m3/d drinking water treatment plant was built by WABAG under very challenging environmental conditions.
