De Bilt, 31 January 2013 - An international Grontmij team has been awarded a
major water assignment in Turkey. The team will prepare integrated water and
wastewater investment projects for the Turkish Ministry of Environment and
Urbanisation. This is part of an extensive programme to meet the crucial water
management needs of around 3.5 million people and will be funded through the
European Union's Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance (IPA) programme. The
work started in January 2013 and will take around 30 months to complete. The
assignment value for Grontmij is € 5.5 million.
A comprehensive programme of water management services is currently under
development in Turkey supported by IPA. The programme includes the supply of
drinking water, storm water networks and sewerage facilities along with
wastewater treatment plants. Grontmij has been
awarded the development of master
plans, feasibility studies and Environmental Impact Assessments (EIAs) in order
to provide water services to a number of municipalities in 14 provinces in
Turkey. Grontmij will create tender dossiers including the designs for the
construction of the facilities.
Grontmij has extensive experience in both large-scale water management projects
and in EU-funded programmes. It was this expertise along with the significant
track record in multiple countries that won this assignment for our joint
Turkish and Danish team.
Comments Kerem Sadiklar, Country Managing Director in Turkey, 'Through this
project, we will be helping the Turkish government and the local authorities to
provide better water and wastewater services and to achieve higher levels of
environmental protection, all in compliance with EU directives. Delivering
integrated water and wastewater projects is one of our core businesses. The fact
we were awarded this complex project is a recognition of Grontmij's position as
one of the major players in water sector consultancy.'
