The scope of the project includes design, engineering, supply, construction, installation and commissioning of the 200 MLD STP followed by Operation & Maintenance (O&M) for a period of 60 months. This project has the potential to be expanded to 600 MLD in the future, fuelled by city’s growing needs.
