Sweco to renovate the Czech Republic’s largest wastewater treatment plant

November 26, 2013 | Press release

Sweco has been chosen for extensive upgrading and rebuilding of Prague’s central wastewater treatment plant. The contract is worth a total of approximately EUR 8.5 million.

“We will increase the capacity of the Czech Republic’s largest wastewater treatment plant in a way that produces cleaner water for a large area even outside Prague. This is a notable contract that acknowledges Sweco’s market-leading expertise in this area,” says Bo Carlsson, President of Sweco Central and Eastern Europe.

Sweco’s services have been ordered by the Contractor’s Consortium (the Association of WWTP Prague) within a Design & Build type of contract. In the assignment, Sweco’s consultants will be responsible for detail planning and preparation of construction documents for the new plant. The initiative has been undertaken in response to EU requirements regarding the capacity of wastewater treatment facilities. The results of the investment will be cleaner water even outside the Czech borders. The Moldau River empties into the Elbe River and is a source of drinking water in several German cities.

Sweco’s assignment will run until 2017, when the new plant is scheduled for trial operation and then final completion.
