Veolia has won a ten-year contract to extend and bring up to standard the Bonneuil-en- France wastewater treatment plant which will increase the plant’s treatment capacity from 350,000 to 500,000 Population Equivalent (PE).
The Le Croult and Le Petit Rosne valleys (Val d’Oise) intermunicipal association for water management (SIAH), which is composed of 33 municipalities and an urban area in eastern Val d’Oise, has awarded Veolia the design, build, operation and maintenance of the extension of its Bonneuil-en-France wastewater treatment plant. The Group will also be responsible for bringing the current plant up to standard.
The aim of the project – Morée Énergie Eau (Moree Water Energy) – is to increase the performance, sustainability and environmental quality of the facilities. It will enable SIAH to fulfill its new missions as laid down under the ongoing territorial reform in relation to managing collection networks, aquatic environments, flood prevention, and wastewater systems not connected to a municipal network.
The innovative project will benefit from Veolia’s latest technological advances in biological wastewater treatment. the biogas (biomethane) produced will be reinjected into the French natural gas distribution network (GRDF), and the heat recovered from the wastewater will be used to heat the plant’s offices and the technical buildings.
The new Bonneuil-en-France plant will be operational in mid-2022.
This new contract follows a series of successful wastewater projects in France in recent months: with SIAAP in Ile-de-France, and the urban areas of Le Mans and Lille.
