- Preparation of the project
- Building, assembly and activation of the filter installation
- Renovation of a pipeline network in a district in Sverdlovsk
- Business development: preparation of project follow-up
- Drinking water installation to supply water to 1000 people
• To demonstrate a water purification method suitable for producing drinking water from groundwater in the region of Lugansk.
• To demonstrate sustainable renovation of part of the pipeline network in the city of Sverdlovsk, by providing technical assistance to the local water network operator.
Details of project plan
The filter installation placed by the partners has a design capacity of 100 m3/hour and provides water for 20,000 peoples. The project will also renovate part of the pipeline network serving 1000 to 2000 households. The project will pass though the following phases:
• Project preparation.
• Building, transport and assembly of the installation.
• Renovating the pipeline network, including assessment of the current infrastructure and design of the new pipeline, delivery of pipes, low-energy pumps and water meters, and technical assistance to the municipality.
• Business development, including drinking water production, monitoring, after-care and supervising use of the installation, a management plan for the installation, and a business plan for follow-up investments.
• Supplementary activities (financed by the project partners), including demonstration of another water purificatoin method that may be applicable in small villages with up to 1000 inhabitants. This will entail building a container installation with a maximum capacity of 10 m3/hour.
An functional and affordable piped water supply will have a beneficial effect on the local population, the pipeline operator and the regional economy.
The most direct impact of the project is the delivery of clean drinking water, which will directly improve public health.
By involving local partners, they will acquire knowledge on new filter technology, water management, water quality, and the physical and organisational management of the water supply network.
Spin off and market impact
The consortium indicates that, at the location of the demonstration project, the filter installation can be expanded to a production capacity of 500 m3/hour (worth around 2,5 million euros). This is expected to be the first follow-up investment after the project.
Five similar locations have been identified in the province of Lugansk where the consortium can apply this technology. These projects will be worth around 10 million euros. The provincial authorities have sufficient resources to finance these investments.
