September saw Tedagua’s portfolio in Romania increase by over €13 million when the company secured two new contracts in the provinces of Botosani and Mures.

On September 2nd last, Tedagua and SC Nova Apa Serv S.A., the water company in Botosani, signed a contract for the design and construction work associated with the upgrading of existing drinking water treatment plants in the towns of Catamarasti and Bucecea. The total value of the investment amounts to 15,343,476 Ron (around €3,400,000). Under the terms of this contract, the work is scheduled to be completed in a period of 18 months and it will be carried out in two stages: the design stage and the construction stage.

At both the Catamarasti and Bucecea DWTPs, water turbidity at times of flooding of the River Siret can currently be as high as 4,000 NTU, making it necessary to carry out treatment of the turbid water, and drying and storage of the sludge produced, in order to reduce turbidity to the level of 200 NTU set out in the European directive. This improvement in turbidity will considerably reduce the water quality problems continuously experienced during time of heavy rains and flooding in these two towns in the north of Romania.

On September 19th, Tedagua entered into a new contract for the construction of a drinking water pipeline with S.C. Compania Aquaserv S.A., the water company in Mures. The contract is worth 45,941,203 Ron (around €10,200,000) and the project is scheduled for completion within a period of 18 months.

The project consists of the construction of a drinking water pipeline of 46 km in length to take water from Sarmasu to Voiniceni. The pipeline will pass through a number of towns in the northeast of the province. The project also includes the upgrading and construction of four drinking water tanks, three pumping stations and two chlorination stations.

These two new contracts consolidate the position of Tedagua’s subsidiary in Romania’s environment sector, whilst reinforcing the company’s development plan in terms of entering other eastern European countries.
