Xylem Wins $1m USD Contract for First Wastewater Treatment Plant in Sehore, India


Xylem has secured a $1 million USD order to supply advanced wastewater treatment technology to a sewage treatment plant in the state of Madhya Pradesh in central India. The new plant is being developed to accommodate rapid industrial growth in the city of Sehore.

Xylem will provide wastewater treatment expertise and technology, including a Sanitaire ICEAS advanced Sequential Batch Reactor (SBR) system, which will support the treatment of 12 million liters of wastewater per day, and meet wastewater discharge quality standards set by the Madhya Pradesh Pollution Control Board.

The Municipal Corporation of Sehore appointed Ankita Construction to manage the build of what will be the first sewage treatment plant in the city. A long-term assessment of water quality data carried out by India’s Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) in 2015 found that the majority of polluted river stretches were found in the Maharashtra, Assam and Madhya Pradesh regions*.

Mr. Aravind Andani, Managing Director, Ankita Construction said, “This new treatment facility will improve general hygiene and health in the city as well as enhancing the water quality of the River Siven and the surrounding environment.”

Raveendra Bhat, Director Treatment and Dewatering, Xylem India, said, “Approximately 100,000 people in the city of Sehore will benefit from this new plant which will enrich the quality of life in the region. We are pleased to be able to support this ambitious project by providing a bespoke solution which will facilitate the reliable, sustainable treatment of wastewater.”

Xylem’s contract includes designing the treatment process, supplying and installing all treatment technology (including Sanitaire ICEAS SBR system, diffusers, decanters, control and instrumentation technology) and commissioning the plant.

Construction of the new facility will begin in September 2016 with the plant expected to be operational by August 2018.
