Drake & Scull unit wins EU water projects
Doha, October 29, 2013
Drake & Scull International said its German subsidiary Passavant-Roediger has won two major water treatment plant projects in Romania and Turkey worth Dh152 million.
The new contracts affirm Passavant’s growing presence in the European market, said the leading developer of wastewater, water and sludge treatment technologies, with operations across Europe, Africa, Asia and the Middle East.
Under the terms of the Romanian agreement, Passavant-Roediger will undertake the EPC and commissioning works for the extension and modernization of the wastewater treatment plant in the cities of Campina and Plopeni in Romania.
Earlier in 2012, the company embarked on two similar projects that paved the way for this latest win, it stated.
The contract in Turkey, involves the development of an activated sludge plant with primary clarifiers, biological nitrification/de-nitrification and biological/chemical phosphorous removal and anaerobic stabilization capabilities.
Commenting on the win, Dr Mazen Bachir, the managing director, said: "We at Passavant-Roediger are constantly striving to improve technologies and products to cater to the demands of the international water and waste water industry."
"Our high-rate water purification technology using our patented Turbo-LME process and the new state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities for specialized digestion components are key assets that we will leverage for these and future developments," he stated.
"As both Romania and Turkey are critical to our expansion plans in the EU, we will apply our expertise into meeting the specific requirements of both these projects," he added.
Drake & Scull acquired Passavant-Roediger in 2009 to enhance its capabilities in the region’s water and wastewater sector.
"The GCC remains a key growth market for Passavant and we continue to deliver on our on-going projects in UAE, Saudi, Iraq and Lebanon. In recent years, the company has steadily grown its footprint in the GCC with successful implementation in Qatar, UAE, and Saudi Arabia," said Dr Bachir.-TradeArabia News Service
