The orders are for the design and construction of interceptor sewers in Delhi for the abatement of pollution in Yamuna River. The orders for the two packages include the designing, construction and lying of Interceptor Sewers along three major drains – Najafgarh, Supplementary and Shahadra. The project, scheduled to be completed in 3 years, also includes an operation and maintenance component spanning over 11 years.
The project work entails micro tunneling, civil & structure work, electrical & instrumentation, as well as mechanical works. The scope includes the complete design and installation of the Interceptor Sewers using Trenchless Technology, design and construction of interceptor chambers as well as the sewerage pumping stations.
This initiative is one of the largest and first-of-it-kind to be undertaken in India. Commenting on the order, Ajit B Kulkarni, MD of Pratibha Industries Ltd said, “We are extremely happy that we have been awarded this prestigious order by Engineers India Ltd for the Delhi Jal Board project to design and construct the Interceptor Sewers which will help in the reduction of pollution in Yamuna River.”
Mr Kulkarni further added, “The Yamuna River, which passes through Delhi in India, has been immensely polluted in the past few decades. Currently, the untreated sewage is being discharged into the river leading to it getting polluted. This project will help to divert the untreated waste by channeling the same through the interceptor chambers and transporting it to the Sewerage Treatment Plant. We are glad to be a part Delhi Jal Boards’ larger initiative of creating a safer, cleaner and greener environment”.
