Egis to implement the design contract in water sector in Ukraine

In October 2017, the works in the Second Urban Infrastructure Project financed by IBRD where launched in Novovolynsk.

     Egis will be in charge of preparation of design, detailed design and bidding documents for the improvement of existing urban water supply system.

     Novovolynsk, a 50 000 inhabitants’ city in the west of Ukraine, was built in 1950 as a mining town. Currently, from the total amount of 11 mining companies, only 4 are still functioning. Thus, the need in water intake has significantly reduced.

     Moreover, the major part of the networks is obsolete due to more than a 30-year excess of operation life term. As a result, implementing those modernization works will help the city to resolve three main issues: upgrade of the deteriorated assets requesting permanent and costly maintenance works; reduction of energy consumption and finally, supply water of good quality for the best price.
