DSI unit wins wastewater project in Moldova

DUBAI, March 11, 2018

Dubai-based building contractor Drake & Scull International (DSI) said its German subsidiary, Passavant Energy & Environment (PE&E), has secured a Dh110-million ($30 million) contract to undertake the rehabilitation works for a wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) and new sludge treatment facilities in Moldova’s capital city Chisinau.

A regional leader in engineering and construction services, DSI said the German unit will collaborate with Ludwig Pfeiffer, a privately-owned construction contractor in Europe, to deliver its patented innovations and technologies to address the challenges posed by the complex rehabilitation works.

Passavant’s share of the project amounts to 50 per cent of the total project contract value.

Passavant CEO Fares Khatib said: "We are delighted to start 2018 on a positive note, with this contract win for the Chișinău wastewater treatment plant. Our acclaimed wastewater and sludge treatment technologies have improved the quality of core infrastructure in several cities, through the various WWTP installations we have successfully delivered globally."

"Our in-depth array of German EPC (engineering, procurement and construction) turnkey solutions spans the complete lifecycle of water and wastewater treatment projects, from holistic design and build, to post operations and maintenance. Our versatile engineering scales and adapts to municipal, industrial and surface water treatment plants, sea water reverse osmosis, sludge digestion, solid waste treatment plants, custom made water treatment packages, and waste to energy projects," noted Khatib.

The Chisinau (Moldova) project win marks DSI’s second contract award in 2018, marking an upswing in DSI’s operational recovery.

Backed by DSI management’s support and global footprint, PE&E is well positioned to utilise the growth opportunities for its water and wastewater treatment solutions, across its key markets in 2018.

"We are pleased to have Ludwig Pfeiffer as our civil partners in this endeavor and are confident that the WWTP will be a befitting showcase of our combined experience, expertise, and project management," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
