AECOM will provide detailed design and construction supervision to upgrade the existing south works from 95 to 145 million gallons per day, while maintaining output from the full plant at 232 million gallons per day.
The project also involves adding a visitor centre, as well as plans to redevelop the full plant.
“AECOM is excited to support this upgrade to one of Asia’s largest water treatment works, which will supply water to more than 2 million people in Hong Kong,” said AECOM President and Chief Executive Officer John M. Dionisio.
The upgrade’s total construction cost is estimated to be US $500 million, with completion scheduled for 2016.
