Passavant-Roediger GmbH, a wholly owned German subsidiary of Drake & Scull International (DSI) PJSC, has won two more major water treatment plant projects in Romania and Turkey worth a total of AED 152 Million. The new contracts affirm Passavant’s growing presence in the European market.
Under the terms of the Romanian agreement, Passavant-Roediger will undertake the engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning works for the extension and modernization of the Waste Water 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.
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. The project is located in the city of Adiyaman and is expected to serve to 185,119 population equivalent (p.e.).
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. 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,” said Dr. Mazen Bachir, Managing Director, Passavant-Roediger.
The GCC remains a key growth Market for Passavant and we continue to deliver on our on-going projects in UAE, Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Lebanon. In recent years, Passavant- Roediger has steadily grown its footprint in the GCC with successful implementation in Qatar, UAE, and Saudi Arabia.
Backed by DSI’s solid reach and reputation in the GCC and our own experience in European as well as global markets, we have been able to establish ourselves well here.
In the coming years, we hope to further reinforce our position and emerge as the choice ‘go-to-specialist’ in the region. We are after all, the first company to bring a waste-to-energy plant to the region, with the Saida Municipal Domestic Waste Treatment plant in Lebanon, treating 300 tonnes per day of domestic waste” added Bachir.
