SUEZ wins two contracts in India and will produce drinking water for over 10 million inhabitants in Bengalaru

For a total amount of €60 million, the two contracts concern the design-build, and operate for seven years of a 775 MLD Water Treatment Plant (WTP), and a Treated Water Reservoir with Pumping Station, at TK Halli Water Complex. Over the last two decades, SUEZ has, at TK Halli Water Complex, designed and built three water treatment installations, with a combined production capacity of 1,550 MLD. SUEZ operates all these Installations. After the new installation is built and commissioned in 2023, SUEZ will be responsible for the operations and cumulative production of 2,350 MLD potable water, serving over 10 million population of Bengaluru city and its suburbs.

Bengaluru, known as the 'Silicon Valley of India', is the second-fastest-growing metropolis in India. Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB), the public utility agency, developed TK Halli Water Complex, 95 km south of Bengaluru city, under the Cauvery Water Supply Scheme (CWSS). The objective was to bring the raw water by gravity pipe from Cauvery river which is 20 km away, treat and pump the drinking water to Bengaluru city, which is located at a higher altitude. In due course, the treatment and pumping capacity at TK Halli Water Complex was augmented in four successive stages of CWSS to meet the growing water demand of the City and its suburbs. The new Contracts are part of CWSS Stage-V, and financed by Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).

The Water Treatment Facility will be one of the largest at TK Halli Complex. In addition, the partnership between SUEZ and Toshiba Water Solutions, pooling-in the complementary skills of each other1 in the project execution, this world class treatment facility will be delivering excellence of services to the inhabitants of Bengaluru city and its suburbs. The Contract for the Treated Water Reservoir and Pumping Station comprising of nine water supply pumps each with a 3.5 MW motor, to be exclusively executed by SUEZ, shall become one of the biggest Water Supply Pumping Station references for the SUEZ Group.
