Mott’s Odessa deal
Mott MacDonald is to carry out the design and development of tender documentation and procurement services for a new sewerage system in Odessa, Ukraine. The company was appointed by Odessa City Council.The £1M project, funded by the World Bank, is being developed to complete the existing sewerage system in the south district of the city that is currently working at capacity and, as a result, has created huge environmental issues for the local residents.
Mott MacDonald is responsible for the preparation of designs, drawings, technical specifications and bills of quantities for the city sewerage for all the upgrade and modernisation of the project which includes packages I and II. The consultancy will also provide pre-contract services and support the agency with the bidding process for the selection of a contractor for the completion of Package I, which accounts for 4.9km of the sewerage system. Package II contains the rest of the sewerage tunnels and shafts up to and including the main sewerage pumping station (MSPS).
MSPS is proposed to be 50m in diameter with a depth of up to 65, and will be placed next to the wastewater treatment plant.
Radko Bucek, Mott MacDonald's project director, commented: "We are delighted to be appointed on this important project for Odessa. Given that the current sewerage system is insufficient and incomplete, this is a big event as its improvement will be extremely beneficial for the people in the city.
"This project offers a real opportunity to demonstrate our expertise and experience in water and wastewater projects around the world and we look forward to assisting the city council."
The project is due to be completed by February.
