Biwater’s Package Water Treatment Plant ‘BiPAK’ to Benefit Urban Municipality of Solano, Philippines

Posted: Monday 15th December 2014

In the Philippines, Biwater have been awarded a project to design and construct a 10 million litres per day (MLD) water treatment plant for the district of Solano in the province of Nueva Vizcaya, which is located on the island of Luzon, north of Manila.

For the client, MacroAsia Corporation, Biwater’s successful package water treatment plant – ‘BiPAK’ – will deliver World Health Organisation (WHO) quality drinking water and serve an urban population of over 60,000.

The benefits of the BiPAK package water treatment plant include:

· Modular configuration

· Easily scalable

· Robust and efficient process

· Reduced construction costs (CAPEX)

· Reduced operating costs (OPEX)

Commenting on the award of this contract and the BiPAK design, Mr. Louis Katada of MacroAsia Corporation said, “We are delighted with Biwater’s overall design, along with the low capital and operating costs of the facility, which will be constructed in the coming months to deliver water to the local community in record time.”

This project is part of an effort to provide potable water to the entire population of Solano for the first time, to sustain its continued development. Although there is a water source from the Magat River – the largest tributary of the Cagayan River – there is no existing water treatment and distribution system to provide for the 60,000 local residents and businesses with a readily available and quality supply of potable water.

Solano is one of the oldest municipalities in the Philippines and was founded in the 1760’s. Since that time, it has become the central business district in Nueva Vizcaya.
