UEM India, a water services company of Toshiba Group, has won an engineering, procurement and construction contract (EPC) to supply a comprehensive sewerage system in Sahibganj in the eastern Indian state of Jharkhand. UEM has received the contract from Jharkhand Urban Infrastructure Development Company (JUIDCO), which operates under the administrative control of the Urban Development Department of Jharkhand’s state government.
The contract comprises the construction of two sewage treatment plants (STP) based on sequencing batch reactor technology (SBR), with 5- and 7-million litter per day capacities, along with a 55km sewerage network and seven pumping stations. It also covers 10 years of operation and maintenance services (O&M), and has a total value of INR 132.6Cr.
Mr. Koichi Matsui, Chairperson and Managing Director of UEM said, “We are honoured that JUIDCO chose us as a partner in infrastructure development. I am sure this decision reflects our expertise in wastewater treatment and the extensive O&M experience we have gained through significant contracts in other Indian cities. The Sahibganj contract is a testimony to our expertise in commissioning similar projects and managing the technology and funding structure, and reinforces our already strong record for delivering cost-effective solutions for wastewater management.”
