Oct 16 2008 Read 1380 Times

Veolia Water, via OTV, a subsidiary of Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies, has been awarded two major design-build contracts by the IAAP, the wastewater authority for the Paris area in France.
As leader of the consortium for both projects, Veolia Water will be in charge of bringing the Seine Aval wastewater treatment plant in Achères into compliance with the EU’s Urban Wastewater Directive. With a capacity of 1.7 million cubic meters per day during dry weather, the plant is the biggest of its kind in Europe.
Veolia will also execute the second section of the Seine Grésillons wastewater treatment plant in Triel sur Seine. The works will triple the plant’s capacity and bring it into compliance with the European
Framework Directive and the French Water Act, which sets a target for the good ecological status of the River Seine. The turnover for these two contracts is worth a cumulated total of €224.1 million Euros over the period for the company.
Commenting on the contracts Antoine Frérot, Chief Executive Officer of Veolia Water explained, “These two contracts confirm the trust afforded by the SIAAP - one of the world’s biggest and most demanding wastewater authority - in our expertise in the design and implementation of high-tech treatment solutions. Against a backdrop of European regulations that are imposing excellence, we are continuing the major environmental combat to conserve the Seine’s water quality.”
