Sweco has been chosen to plan and design a new wastewater treatment
plant in Om Noi, a satellite city of Bangkok. In the future, the new
plant will treat wastewater for 350,000 residents.
“There is an urgent need to improve the systems for wastewater treatment
in Thailand, not least outside Bangkok. Sweco worked in Bangkok with
wastewater treatment for the capital city during the 1990s, and the
recently signed contract could represent the first in a series of new
assignments in the country,” says Eva Nygren, President of Sweco Sweden.
The project is being carried out on behalf of Thailand's Wastewater
Management Authority under the Ministry of Natural Resources and
Environment. Sweco's contract is worth approximately EUR 550,000.
Consulting services for the project will be partly funded by the
Government Offices of Sweden's Project Export Secretariat within the
Ministry for Foreign Affairs.
“The project will further strengthen the already good relations between
Thailand and Sweden,” says Ambassador Victoria Jacobson, Director of the
Government Offices of Sweden's Project Export Secretariat.
