R.V. Anderson Associates of Toronto and Ottawa have been selected to help design a massive sewage disposal project that will serve 12 million people in Mumbai (Bombay), India.
R.V. Anderson will be working on the project as part of a consortium with Mott MacDonald of the U.K. and PHE Consultants of Mumbai.
The project is the second phase of improvements to the Mumbai Sewage Disposal Project and represents one of the largest wastewater design and construction projects in India.
The announcement of the R.V. Anderson consortium selection was made during a January trade mission to India led by Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty.
R.V. Anderson has been working in India on major infrastructure projects for the last 12 years. They developed a 25-year master plan for Mumbai’s sewage systems that formed the foundation for the current $350-million design and construction project. The master plan was also done with Mott McDonald and PHE.
R.V. Anderson is also working on a project to improve the wastewater treatment capacity of the Yamuna River between Delhi and Agra together with a Japanese consultant. Another project with which R.V. Anderson is involved is a study of environmental improvements for the municipality of Sangli Miraj Kupwad in southern Maharashtra.
In 2002, the Canada-India Business Council recognized R.V. Anderson with the first Canada-India Business Partnership award.
