First Russian PPP water project

Mott MacDonald has been appointed by SUE Vodokanal St Petersburg as technical advisor for the first Russian public private partnership (PPP) water supply project – known as the Neva water project. This PPP includes the design and construction of a new Northern Water Treatment Plant including re-construction of some facilities at the existing plant. The overall objective is to increase the total output of potable water from 600,000 to 800,000 CUM/day and to meet the latest Russian and European water quality standards. The project will incorporate the latest technology to modernize the original facility constructed 40 years ago.
Mott MacDonald’s role includes advising on developing technical requirements for the design, construction and operation of the new facilities as well as confirming technical solutions for the project and water consumption forecasts plus providing an analysis of capital and operational costs. Mott MacDonald’s project team will also develop a strategic social and environmental impact assessment.
The private sector partner is yet to be appointed and will be required to design, build, finance and operate the project facilities for a period of 25 years. It will have an offtake contract with SUE Vodokanal St Petersburg for the supply of potable water under the conditions of the PPP agreement.
