Nov 29, 2006

Sogea Construction has secured the contract for the reconstruction of the wastewater treatment plant serving the Angers Loire Métropole agglomeration. The new plant will occupy an area of 90,000 sq. metres. Its capacity will be raised to 285,000 p.e., i.e. 65,000 cu. metres/day, with a peak throughput of 5,500 cu. metres/hour in rainy weather. This contract is valued at 50 million Euros.

The local water authority (SIARCE: Syndicat Intercommunal d’Assainissement et de Restauration de Cours d’Eau) has appointed Sogea Construction to design and build its new depollution plant at Corbeil-Essonnes. This plant will process a nominal load of 96,000 p.e. (capable of being increased to 110,000 p.e.), with advanced nitrogen and phosphorus treatment, handling a daily volume of 15,000 cu. metres/d and a peak throughput of 1,200 cu. metres/h. This contract, which will take 28 months to complete, is worth a total of 20 million Euros.

In Martinique, Sogea has just won an order worth 8.5 million euros for the construction of the new wastewater treatment plant at Le Marin (12,500 p.e.). The contract covers the civil engineering, to be supplied by Sogea Martinique, and the process engineering designed by Sogea Construction.

And, finally, Sogea Construction has secured the design-build contract to upgrade the drinking water plant at Moulineaux, which supplies the greater Rouen area. This plant will produce 30,000 cu. metres/d with an instantaneous output of 1,500 cu. metres/h, using the Membratec membrane technique. Contract value: 9.7 million Euros.
