Veolia to build Tunisian textiles wastewater plant

The Tunisian national sanitation office ONAS has awarded Veolia-subsidiary OTV the contract for the design and construction of a wastewater treatment plant for the Monastir Technopole and textile polishing park. The project includes the collection of raw sewage and discharge of treated water.

The plant, located 170 km from Tunis, will initially have a capacity of 6000 m3/day.

For this project, OTV will partner with GIS Aqua Austria GmbH and Tunisian company Bouzguenda Frères Bâtiments et Travaux Publics.

The work is expected to take 32 months.

“Our aim is to improve the quality of the treated wastewater to allow its use in other fields of activity,” notes Habib Omrane, CEO of ONAS.
