We are delighted to announce that the Lüleburgaz Wastewater Management Project has been shortlisted for ‘Overseas Project of the Year’ as part of the ACEI Annual Excellence Awards 2014.
The Lüleburgaz project has been placed in the Large Projects category (over €10 Million). The overall winner will be announced on Friday 28th March 2014 at the ACEI Annual Awards Dinner in the Four Seasons Hotel, Dublin.
Lüleburgaz is a town and district of Kirklareli Province in the Marmara region of Turkey, 163 km from Istanbul airport. It sits on the Ergene River and has a population of over 105,000 people. Even though it has a population of this size, Luleburgaz had no wastewater treatment facility and was discharging untreated sewage into the Eugene River, and ultimately into the Aegean Sea. The provision of Design and Construction Supervision Services for a new Wastewater Treatment Plant formed part of the project brief in addition to the provision of Technical Assistance to set up a Project Implementation Unit (or PIU) and a Water Utility Department.
