Nordecon AS entered into an agreement today with OÜ Järve Biopuhastus, the water company belonging to the Jõhvi, Kohtla-Järve, Püssi and Kiviõli local governments, for the construction of the first stage of the water and sewerage systems for Kiviõli. The total value of the project (including a reserve for unforeseeable work) is 4.52 million euros, plus VAT.
 
“Although a lot’s already been done in Kiviõli to boost the quality of its drinking water and for the proper treatment of its waste water, the next few years will give hundreds of households in the town even more reason to be happy!” said Avo Ambur, a member of the management board of Nordecon AS. “In the course of the work that’s about to begin, old pipeline will be replaced with new pipes which will deliver drinking water to people’s homes meeting all of the modern requirements. There’ll be no more leaks, either, and far fewer environmental risks.”
 
Ambur says that for historical reasons, the availability of clean drinking water means more to the residents of Kiviõli – which is located in an active mining area – than it does to many other Estonians. As such, the company considers it very important to meet its deadlines and ensure that everyone is happy with the results despite the complex geological conditions involved in the construction process.
 
Construction of the first stage of the water and sewerage system for Kiviõli will see work carried out in the area between Kuuse, Lepa and Võsa Streets. A total of 8.1 km of new pipeline will be laid, as well as 9.3 km of self-flowing sewerage pipes and a 3 km network of pressurised pipeline. 9 waste water pumping stations and a process management and control system will also be constructed.
 
The project has been commissioned by OÜ Järve Biopuhastus, with supervision to be provided on behalf of the client by AS Infragate Eesti. Work is likely to commence in November and last for 9 months.
