A Turkish contractor is going to construct an industrial wastewater treatment plant in a southwestern suburb of Tehran after finalizing an agreement with Tehran Province’s Water and Wastewater Company.
The contract was formally signed at a ceremony in Tehran on Tuesday, with a delegation from the Turkish company in attendance.
According to Asghar Riazati, managing director of Tehran Water and Wastewater Co., the new facility is going to be built in an area of 45 hectares southwest of Tehran.
The project is estimated to cost about 125 million euros, and is expected to be completed in 54 months, he added.
When fully operational, the facility will recycle 190 million cubic meters of sewage per annum, supplying clean water for farms, the official noted.
