Er­denet Waste­water Treat­ment Plant ex­pected to open next year

The UB Post - - DOMESTIC -

On Thurs­day, Orkhon Prov­ince Mayor D.Bat­lut shared plans to com­mis­sion the Waste­water Treat­ment Plant in Er­denet city, Orkhon Prov­ince next year.

A rep­re­sen­ta­tive from GDF Suez of France, man­ag­ing the Project to Ex­pand WWTP in Orkhon Prov­ince, stated that the launch of the plant could de­lay and that they might not be able to com­plete the con­struc­tion work be­fore the end of 2017 if ad­di­tional work­ers aren’t hired.

As of Septem­ber 7, the process to as­sem­ble steel struc­tures of the plant was at 97 per­cent com­ple­tion and GDF Suez work­ers were start­ing to build roads and set up elec­tric­ity net­work lines.

Ar Daa­gan LLC is han­dling the as­sem­bling work with as­sis­tance from Baigu­u­lamj LLC.

“The lack of work­force was re­lated to the fi­nan­cial sit­u­a­tion. We have re­quested the Con­struc­tion De­vel­op­ment Cen­ter for a cred­i­bil­ity as­sur­ance re­port in or­der to gen­er­ate in­vest­ment,” said the gen­eral en­gi­neer of Ar Daa­gan LLC.

Ac­cord­ing to the con­tract, the waste­water treat­ment plant is sup­posed to be handed over for com­mis­sion on Septem­ber 30. To com­ply with the agree­ment, Mayor D.Bat­lut has or­dered con­struc­tion com­pa­nies to has­ten their op­er­a­tions but with­out de­grad­ing the qual­ity of work.

Re­port­edly, the ex­pan­sion of the plant is very sig­nif­i­cant for re­duc­ing wa­ter and soil pol­lu­tion in Ulaan­baatar.
