ICEACSA IS DRAFTING THE STUDIES AND DETAILED DESIGNS FOR THE PROJECT OF THE WASTEWATER TREATMENT PLANT OF ARRAIJÁN ESTE, THE TRUNK SYSTEM AND ITS INTERCONNECTIONS IN PANAMA.
THE PROJECT WILL BENEFIT 180,000 INHABITANTS IN THE AREA OF BURUNGA, CERRO SILVESTRE, NUEVO CHORRILLO AND ARRAIJÁN CABECERA.
ICEACSA Grupo has been contracted by FCC-Aqualia to carry out the technical assistance work for the preparation of studies and detailed designs for the Arraiján Este wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) project, its trunk system and its interconnections.
The project, valued at 85 million euro, includes the construction of the Wastewater Treatment Plant; 5 km of sanitary sewerage networks in Burunga; three pumping stations; a 3,000 m2 building built to house the operation and maintenance, general administrative and laboratory services; and the development of the property.
The contract includes the design of the first stage of the wastewater treatment plant with a projection for 2050 and a capacity to treat 86,400 m3/day (1 m3/s) in five activated sludge and anaerobic digestion treatment modules, as well as the calculation and design of the trunk system and its interconnections with the existing networks. Aqualia will be in charge of the construction, operation and maintenance of the first stage with three treatment modules with a capacity of 53,568 m3/day (0.62 m3/s) for a period of 10 years.
The plant will be located in Nuevo Chorrillo, in the village of Cerro Silvestre, on the banks of the Aguacate River on a plot of land of approximately 19.5 hectares.
The Fundavico, Montevista, Altos de Cáceres II, Brisas del Sol, Colinas del Sol and Lluvia de Oro No.1 developments, which currently have a sanitary sewerage system, will be the first to be connected to the Wastewater Treatment Plant. The estimated construction time of the plant is three years.
This Project is financed by the Andean Development Corporation (CAF) and by the Government of the Republic of Panama.
