India: Abengoa has been selected by the state-owned Madhya Pradesh Urban Development Company (MPUDC), for the design, construction, operation & maintenance for 10 years of two wastewater treatment plants and their corresponding sewerage networks in Nasrullaganj and Maheshwar, towns located in the Madhya Pradesh state, in Central India.

The total value of both the projects is around 10 M€ and they will be financed by the World Bank through the Madhya Pradesh Urban Development Project, developed by MPUDC, whose main objective is to enhance the coverage of key urban services in this state, such as in this case the collection, transport, and treatment of wastewater.

The Nasrullaganj project includes a 53-km sewerage network up to 700 mm diameter and a treatment plant based on the Sequencing Batch Reactor (SBR) process with the capacity to treat 4,200 m3 of wastewater per day.

Similarly, in Maheshwar, a 30-km sewerage network also up to 700 mm diameter will be constructed and, in this case, the treatment plant will have the capacity to treat near 5,000 m3 of wastewater per day.

Thanks to these projects, the sewerage system of a total population of almost 55,000 inhabitants will be improved and the disposal of wastewater without treatment in river sources will be reduced.
