Hong Kong Awards $419 Million for Tai Po Water Plant Expansion

Hong Kong’s water supplies department awarded a HK$3.25 billion ($419 million) contract, its largest ever, to the China State-Atal joint venture to double the capacity of Tai Po Water Treatment Works.

Completion of the Tai Po expansion, on Hong Kong’s east coast, is scheduled for mid-2017. The facility will be able to take up part of the Sha Tin Water Treatment Works’ load in supplying fresh water “to a significant part of Kowloon and the Central and Western districts on Hong Kong Island, thereby enhancing the overall resilience, flexibility and reliability of the water supply system in Hong Kong,” Ma Lee-tak, director of water supplies, said yesterday in a statement.
