Expanding sewerage networks, treatment capacity is a high priority in Bengbu City

Xylem has won a contract worth nearly $1.5 million to provide wastewater treatment technology as part of a sewage plant upgrade project in Bengbu City (known locally as Pearl City), Anhui Province, China.

A recent World Bank report undertaken as part of the Bengbu Integrated Environment Improvement Project found that the city’s urban sewerage and wastewater facilities were inadequate, with coverage of only about 50%. Thus, expanding sewerage networks and treatment capacity is considered a high and urgent priority to achieving sustainable water quality and improving the urban environment.

“This plant upgrade project in Bengbu City will benefit more than 2 million people living in the city, easing the pressure on the city’s stretched wastewater networks,” said Jiangbo Hu, general manager, Anhui Sunshine Water Service Co Ltd. 

Xylem’s Leopold elimi-NITE denitrification system will be used in what will be the largest biological denitrification system in the city. The system will provide tertiary treatment, removing suspended solids and total phosphorus and delivering biological denitrification of the wastewater.

“The timeline for this project is challenging; however, the depth and breadth of our team will allow us to deliver on time,” said Heng Zhang, senior sales engineer, Xylem. “The new plant will have a capacity of 200,000 cu meters per day (m3/day) and will deliver the high effluent quality required by the Chinese government as it seeks to improve effluent quality across the country.” 

Construction of the plant is currently underway. The plant is expected to be operational in December 2016.
