Shenzen Municipal Water Treatment Projects
IOM3 Hong Kong co-organised visit with the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers - Environmental Division
In December 2003, Veolia and Shenzen Water Group signed a major contract for municipal outsourcing services with the city of Shenzen, located on the border with Hong Kong and one of China's most important business hubs. Under this 50-year contract, Veolia and Shenzen Water Group are responsible for the production and distribution of water, customer relations, and the collection and treatment of wastewater.
In 2004, the contract covered the Shenzen Special Economic Zone (China's first SEZ) and served 2.8 million people. As the Zone expanded over the years, Veolia and Shenzen Water Group now serve up to 10.6 million people in Shenzen, with the district area covering 95% of the urban sector with production capacity around 5.7 million m3 per day.
Upgrades were made to water treatment plants, including Bijiashan adding ozonation and activated carbon to improve drinking water quality.
