Macao Water is slated to commence construction of the Seac Pai Van Water Treatment Plant in Coloane, after three years of preparation.
Covering an area of 17,000 square meters next to Seac Pai Van Reservoir on Estrada do Altinho de Ká Hó, Seac Pai Van Water Treatment Plant will be built with an investment of around MOP1 billion from the city’s water company.
The new water treatment plant is a high-
standard water treatment facility that uses energy-
efficient, emission-reducing intelligent technology to facilitate the city’s water recycling.
Upon completion, the new water treatment plant will have a daily water supply capacity of 130,000 cubic metres, raising the daily water supply capacity of Macao from 390,000 cubic metres currently to 520,000 cubic metres in future.
It will not only ensure a safe and stable water supply on the Islands, alleviating the current problem of water supply mainly depending on the Macao Peninsula, but also satisfy the needs of Macao’s urban development in the coming decade and play a critical role in the long-term development of the city.
At the sidelines of the launch ceremony yesterday, Director of the Marine and Water Bureau Susana Wong estimated that construction of the fourth water supply pipeline will be complete by the end of 2019.
