Outotec wins Lanka water treatment project

Outotec has been awarded a major contract by the Government of Sri Lanka to supply a drinking water supply scheme to the Ampara District on the East Coast of Sri Lanka.
The value of the contract exceeds EUR 70 million.
Outotec’s scope of delivery includes design, supply, construction, installation and commissioning of a water treatment plant and related pump stations and equipment, transmission mains and distribution piping as well as associated infrastructure.
This project represents the third and final phase of a scheme designed to provide treated pipe borne water to over 75% of the Ampara District.
The project, officially known as the Integrated Water Supply Scheme for the Un-served Areas of Ampara District - Phase III, has been the product of a drive from the Government of Sri Lanka to provide pipeborne drinking water to the rural areas of the island.
Following Outotec’s delivery of Phases I and II in 1999 and 2002 respectively, completion of Phase III is scheduled for November 2013.
‘Outotec’s experience in managing projects across the globe was key in helping source and secure the funding necessary for the final phase of this project. Access to clean water will improve the quality of life of some half a million people in Sri Lanka,” explains Outotec CEO Pertti Korhonen.
“This contract also underlines our expertise in businesses beyond mining and metallurgical industries, such as water treatment and supply,” he added.
