Gurugram, India—Toshiba Water Solutions Private Limited (hereinafter TWS), having its registered head office in India, today announced that a consortium of TWS and Frey-Fil Corporation, a construction company in the Philippines, has concluded a contract with Manila Water Company, Inc. for a project to construct a sewage treatment plant. TWS will be responsible for design, supply, installation, testing and commissioning of process and electro-mechanical equipment as well as one-year operation & maintenance (O&M) of the plant.

This project involves the construction of the Hinulugang Taktak Sewage Treatment Plant in the Province of Rizal to the east of Metro Manila, Philippines.

Scheduled to be completed in 2023, the Hinulugang Taktak Sewage Treatment Plant will have a sewage treatment capacity of 16 million litres per day (MLD). In 2016, the Philippines introduced stringent regulations on wastewater, including requirements for biological nutrient removal (BNR), i.e., the removal of nitrogen and phosphorus from wastewater. This project includes the construction of an advanced treatment plant compliant with these regulations in order to contribute to the improvement of the water environment in Metro Manila led by Manila Water. The process technology of the new plant is “Moving Bed Bio-film Reactor (MBBR)”, which has an advantage in space efficiency.

Since 1997, Manila Water has been engaged in the construction and operation of water supply and sewage facilities in the east zone of Metropolitan Manila (Metro Manila) as per the concession agreement with Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS).

TWS engages in EPC*1 and O&M businesses for public water supply and sewerage plants and industrial water treatment facilities around the world, including in India, Southeast Asia, South Asia, Middle East, and North and Central Americas. This contract award is a testimony to Toshiba’s commitment to develop India as an export base for supplying products and services from India to the world.
