Zakázka na stavební práce zahrnuje rekonstrukci stávající ČOV pro biologickou zátěž, která se rovná 180 000 p.e. (populační ekvivalent), a první fázi na zlepšení kvality čistírny od mechanického čištění k procesu, který zahrnuje mechanické a biologické základní čištění pomocí karbonového odnosu, aby se splnily základní požadavky na plynulý a ekonomický účinný provoz čistírny za užití rekonstruovaných stávajících konstrukcí, které jsou vybavené novými moderními zařízeními.
Hlavní stavební práce zahrnují:
— rekonstrukci konstrukcí (např. přítoková nádrž/rozváděč, lapač písku, lapač maziv, usazovací nádrže, aktivované kalové nádrže / provzdušňovací nádrže atd.),
— výměnu a zlepšení kvality zařízení (např. hrubá a jemná síta, čerpadla pro odčerpávání nadměrného množství odpadní a dešťové vody),
— montáž nového zařízení (např. provzdušňovací systémy, desinfekční jednotka, zahušťování a vysoušení kalu, jednotka CHP),
— mírné rozšíření zařízení a konstrukcí (např. budova tepelné elektrárny),
— instalaci základního systému SCADA,
— biologické základní čištění odstraňováním BOD a COD,
— různé laboratorní sklo a zařízení.
Stavební práce budou probíhat podle smluvních podmínek FIDIC pro stavbu na klíč (Žlutá kniha), 1999.
