The works will have the capacity to provide drinking water to the municipalities of Kungälv, Tjörn, Ale and Stenungssund by the summer of 2018. The order value for the contract is approximately SEK300m (£24.6m).
“Kungälv and the surrounding municipalities need to secure their supply of drinking water and we will build, together with NCC, a state-of-the-art facility equipped with the latest water purification technology,” says Maria Sondell, project manager at Kungälv Municipality.
Construction of Kungälv’s waterworks is a two-phase project. The first phase will be up and running no later than the summer of 2018. The waterworks, which will get its water source from the Göta älv River, will have the capacity to supply 1,080m3 of water per hour when it is complete.
“Working on this type of sustainable community solution is incredibly motivating,” said Svante Hagman, business area manager, NCC Infrastructure. “ We have been working with Kungälv Municipality on project engineering and dimensioning of the new waterworks since the autumn. We are moving into the next phase of the partnering arrangement that involves detail engineering so that we can start construction soon.”
