In the Philippines, Biwater have been awarded a project to design and construct a 10 million liters per day (mld) water treatment plant for the district of Solano in the province of Nueva Vizcaya, which is located on the island of Luzon, north of Manila.

For the client, MacroAsia Corp., Biwater’s successful package water treatment plant—BiPAK—will deliver World Health Organization quality drinking water and serve an urban population of more than 60,000.

“We are delighted with Biwater’s overall design, along with the low capital and operating costs of the facility, which will be constructed in the coming months to deliver water to the local community in record time," said Louis Katada of MacroAsia Corp. 

This project is part of an effort to provide potable water to the entire population of Solano for the first time, to sustain its continued development. Although there is a water source from the Magat River—the largest tributary of the Cagayan River—there is no existing water treatment and distribution system to provide for the 60,000 local residents and businesses with a readily available and quality supply of potable water.

Solano is one of the oldest municipalities in the Philippines and was founded in the 1760’s. Since that time, it has become the central business district in Nueva Vizcaya.
