Pioneer in water treatment Va Tech Wabag has won the prestigious Global Water Award for its 45 MLD (million litres a day) Tertiary Treatment Reverse Osmosis (TTRO) Plant at Koyambedu, Chennai. The TTRO plant bagged the distinction award under ‘waste water project of the year’ category. The plant was built by a consortium comprising Wabag and IDE Technologies for Chennai Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board and is one of the largest and technologically most advanced water reuse plants in India. The Tertiary Treatment Reverse Osmosis (TTRO) plant uses a multistage treatment scheme, including Rapid Gravity Sand Filters, Ultrafiltration, Reverse Osmosis, and Ozonation.
It will help Chennai endure and sustain as a result of the city’s consistent problem of drought & water scarcity. Water treated from the plant caters to the requirements of the Industrial hub of South Chennai. The TTRO will supply 16 million3 treated freshwater each year to Chennai’s more than 10 million people. With this, it makes Chennai India’s first city to reuse more than 20 percent of its treated wastewater.
Va Tech Wabag is currently managing more than 65 operations and maintenance contracts globally. The Koymbedu TTRO plant will further strengthen the Wabag’s position as a proven global leader in the recycle & reuse segment that has the highest growth potential in the next few years.
