EIB funds wastewater treatment plant in Haskovo

Date: 11.10.2005

The construction of a wastewater treatment plant in the town of Haskovo, Southern Bulgaria, was given the start with a groundbreaking ceremony.

The ceremony was performed by Ruud Van Enk, Counsellor at the Delegation of the European Commission to Bulgaria, and Head of Phare and ISPA Section and Dimcho Mihalevski, Bulgaria's Deputy Minister of Regional Development and Public Works and UK Ambassador Jeremy Hill.

The project in Haskovo is fully financed by the European Investment Bank with EUR 17 123 585 and is part of ISPA program.

In July last year a contract for drafting and construction of a wastewater treatment plant in Haskovo was inked with the tie-in between the UK company Buywater and its Bulgarian partner "Bulgarian entrepreneurship holding", worth EUR 16.091 M. Another EUR 1.032 M will be allocated for construction surveillance.

The remainder of the credit, about EUR 2 M, will be used for rehabilitating and finishing the sewage network of Haskovo.

The municipality of Haskovo, together with the towns of Dimitrovgrad and Stara Zagora, are beneficiaries in a large-scale wastewater treatment project for the Construction of Wastewater Treatment Plants (WWTP) located in the Maritza Basin.

The total budget for two of the three wastewater treatment plants (Stara Zagora and Dimitrovgrad) is EUR 19 554 075, and is co-financed by ISPA (75%), the European Investment Bank (15%) and the state budget (10%).

The overall objective of the project is the reduction of the pollution load of the Maritza River and its tributaries, which is to result in improvement of the water quality of the Aegean Sea and minimize the risks to public health.

The WWTPs in the three towns are designed for 350,000 population equivalents. The projects are scheduled to be completed by the middle of 2007.
