We expect this model to be soon replicated across major urban regions and open up a multi-billion-dollar market in India, given the government’s efforts to improve the waste water treatment scenario. WABAG, which is currently operating more than 65 O&M contracts globally and backed by its skilled workforce, is well poised to execute this contract.”

Adding further, he said “This contract reinforces WABAG’s commitment to partner with Governments and urban local bodies to realize our Hon’ble PM’s vision of Swachh Bharat and is a progressive step to assure accountability as well as continued performance. With our proven reference of managing over 120 sewage treatment and pumping units for a population of 16 Million people in the city of Istanbul, we are confident of making this new initiative in India a success and gaining excellent visibility given the huge market potential.”

WABAG will be responsible to manage sewage treatment infrastructure of over 650 MLD, adhering to national treatment standards, over 3000 km of sewer networks and 46 pumping stations, thus ensuring a cleaner and healthier eco system to the 3 million population of Agra and Ghaziabad.
