(PRESS RELEASE) STOCKHOLM, 17-Dec-2021 — /EuropaWire/ — Skanska (STO: SKA-B), a world leading project development and construction group, has announced it landed a EUR 45 million (~SEK 460 million) contract for the piping and machinery project for a wastewater treatment plant in Tampere, Finland from Tampere Region Central Wastewater Treatment Plant. The contract will be included in the Nordic order bookings for the 4Q 2021.
The project consists of building and installing piping and machinery for the new wastewater treatment plant. The treatment plant will be an active sludge plant based on simultaneous precipitation, in which wastewater is treated mechanically, chemically, and biologically. Wastewater will be treated with more modern and efficient technology that will also allow to remove nitrogen from the water at a larger extent. The plant will serve Tampere as well as several neighboring municipalities.
The construction is scheduled to start in the first quarter of 2022, and it is expected to be completed during the first quarter of 2026.
Skanska has been part of this wastewater treatment plant project since 2019 by carrying out extensive excavations for the wastewater treatment plant.
