This project comprises of a Design, Build and Operate (DBO) scope worth INR 940 Crore and Hybrid Annuity scope worth around INR 247 Crore.

In Digha, the scope comprises of designing and building a 100 MLD STP, Interception & Diversion Work, two Sewage Pumping Stations and survey, redesigning & building new sewerage network of about 300 kilometers. In Kankarbagh, the scope comprises of designing and building a 50 MLD STP, Flow Diversion Works & all appurtenant structures and survey, redesigning & building new sewerage network of about 150 kilometers.

The construction of sewerage networks which represents over 80% of the total contract will be executed on a DBO basis and the remaining around 20% towards STPs will be implemented under HAM basis. WABAG will also be responsible for the operations and maintenance of the STPs and the sewerage infrastructure for a period of 15 years. The project will be implemented by BUIDCO with financial assistance from the World Bank under the NMCG.

Commenting on this major order win, Mr. Varadarajan S, Director & Chief Growth Officer, said “With this repeat order in Bihar, WABAG will now be responsible for sewerage infrastructure in 4 out of the 6 zones of Patna, thus testifying the trust reposed by NMCG and BUIDCO on WABAG.
