Tedagua strengthens its presence in Romania with two new drinking water infrastructure contracts
Last September, Tedagua increased its backlog in Romania by over 13 million Euros, after the award of two new contracts in the provinces of Botosani and Mures.
On 2nd September 2015, Tedagua and SC Nova Apa Serv S.A., the water company in the region of Botosani, signed the contract for the planning and execution of the enhancement of the existing drinking water plants in the towns of Catamarasti and Bucecea. The global investment amounts to 15,343,476 Ron (approximately €3,400,000). This contract has a total execution term of 18 months and will be developed in two phases: first the planning and then the execution of the works.
In the drinking water plants in Catamarasti and Bucecea, water turbidity during the flooding of the River Siret can currently reach up to 4,000 NTU. This makes it necessary to carry out a turbid water treatment, so that the turbidity can be reduced to the level of 200 NTU set out in the European directive, in addition to a drying and storage of the sludge produced. This will make possible to reduce the existing water quality problems occurring during periods of heavy rainfall and flooding in these two towns in the north east of Romania.
Furthermore, on 19th September 2015, Tedagua signed a new water conveyance execution contract for drinking water for a value of 45,941,203 Ron (approximately €10,200,000) with S.C. Compania Aquaserv S.A., the water company operating in the province of Mures, which is estimated to take 18 months to execute.
The project consists of the execution of a 46 km drinking water pipeline which will provide water from the town of Sarmasu to Voiniceni, crossing different towns in the north east of the province. The project also includes the renovation and construction of four drinking water tanks, three pumping stations and two chlorination stations.
With these two new contracts, the Romanian subsidiary of Tedagua strengthens its position in the country's environmental sector and becomes the launch pad to other Eastern European countries.
