Two new water treatment projects are in the pipeline for Romania. Passavant-Roediger, the German subsidiary of Drake and Scull International, will carry out both projects, worth just under EUR 19 million in total.
The first contract, worth EUR 8.85 million, is to design and build a river water treatment plant in Sibiu, which will provide drinking water for 200,000 people in the area when complete. The scheme will also involve putting in pipes to supply drinking water to Cisnadie and to replenish water reservoirs in the Cisnadioara and Rasinari area.
The second project, worth slightly more at around EUR 9.9 million, is for a sewage treatment plant in Roman, North-Eastern Romania. Under the contract, the existing waste water treatment facilities will be extended and modernized.
Details of the timetables for the two projects have not been released.
