The modernization of the facility also focuses on improving air quality.
The second stage of reconstruction of the Lyubertsy treatment facilities is nearing completion in the capital. Told about it in his account on the social network “VKontakte” Sergei Sobyanin.
According to the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Economic Policy and Property and Land Relations Vladimir Efimov, For the further modernization of the Lyubertsy treatment facilities, more than eight billion rubles of private investment will be attracted. The Moscow government has already approved the implementation of the concession project.
“A large-scale reconstruction of the Lyubertsy treatment facilities is underway. In the course of the third stage of the reconstruction, it is planned to modernize the facilities for extracting phosphorus and removing nitrogen from wastewater. The City Planning and Land Commission of the city of Moscow approved the possibility of implementing the project in the form of a concession. It allows you to equally take into account the interests of both business and the city. The capital will receive a functioning facility, and the investor will receive income from its operation during the entire term of the agreement. Private investment in the construction of wastewater treatment facilities will amount to 8.4 billion rubles, ”the deputy mayor said.
Information on the possibility of implementing the concession is published on the website bidding.gov.ru… Potential investors can declare their intentions to participate in the implementation of the project. In the event of a concession, the new facilities will become the first such large-scale installation in Russia. The agreement with the concessionaire will be signed for 27 years.
City leader Department of Investment and Industrial Policy Alexander Prokhorovnoted that the concessionaire undertakes to build the facilities in two years. Then, for 25 years, he will operate them, carry out maintenance and repairs.
“The project will be implemented entirely at the expense of the investor, which will significantly save budget funds, and the facilities will remain the property of the city. The reconstruction will improve the quality of wastewater treatment, as well as reduce the load on the Lyubertsy treatment facilities, ”added the head of the department.
This is not the first Moscow concession in the field of housing and communal services. In February of this year, the city signed an agreement with a company that will build two plants for environmentally friendly processing of sewage sludge on the territory of the Mosvodokanal treatment facilities. The investor will invest almost 27 billion rubles, and after the commissioning of the facilities will take over the thermal treatment and subsequent disposal of the sludge – it will be supplied to cement plants for use as solid biofuel.
