Suez’s new sewage deal

France’s Suez Environment has won a €60m contract from the city of Lyon to design and build a new sewage treatment plant at La Feyssine.

The plant, which will treat wastewater produced by the 300,000 residential population of the Greater Lyon area, will be operated by Suez for three years.

‘The contract also includes an option to equip the plant with additional units, which will enable energy and agricultural recovery from treated sewage sludge,’ said a Suez spokesperson.

Construction is expected to take 40 months and will be carried out by Degremont, a subsidiary of Suez Environment.
