Hong kong to shell out $2.08b in harbour treatment project

Contract to be completed by end-2014.

According to a report, the Drainage Services Department today signed a $2.08 billion works contract for the design, construction and operation of sludge handling and disposal facilities under the Harbour Area Treatment Scheme.

Speaking at the contract signing ceremony, Director of Drainage Services Chan Chi-chiu said the works under the scheme Stage 2A have been progressing smoothly since they began in July 2009.

The works under the contract awarded today are scheduled for completion by the end of next year.

“Upon commissioning of the facilities, the water quality in Victoria Harbour will see further improvement,” he said.

The contract also includes the procurement of two new self-propelled marine vessels fitted with lifting cranes, and about 400 sludge containers.

The marine vessels will transport dewatered sludge from Stonecutters Island Sewage Treatment Works to other facilities for further treatment.

The operation phase, lasting up to 15 years, will start when construction works and the procurement are complete.
