Fisia Italimpianti, a company of the Salini Impregilo group and world leader in the design and construction of plants for desalination and for water treatment, has been awarded a contract of 57 million euro for the construction of a water purification plant Istanbul. This is the second project in the country in less than two years, after the one for the Atakoy plant in 2016.
Fisia Italimpianti, in a joint venture with Turkish companies Alkatas and Alke, will build the biological plant in the Yenikapi district for the client ISKI, a municipal company that manages the water and purification system for the city of Istanbul. To be completed within 36 months, the plant will treat 450,000 cubic meters of water per day, equal to the production of waste water of two million inhabitants. The two plants, that of Atakoy and this of Yenikapi, are able to meet the need for treatment of wastewater produced by about 30% of the population of Istanbul. The total production capacity of the company’s drinking water at a global level, adds the note of Salino Impregilo, has grown to reach a production level of 4,200,000 cubic meters a day, of which more than 350,000 cubic meters / day with reverse osmosis technology.
