Project Highlights

The Company has been awarded the contract and is mobilizing portable modular Air Diving Systems onto the site and will be performing the diving services required for the advance works program phase of the construction work.

Located in the western part of the New Territories and to be owned by the Hong Kong Government, the facility is critical to the region's wastewater treatment capacity and, at 2,000 metric tonnes per day, will be the biggest sewage sludge incineration facility ever built.

The plant will generate its own energy, being self sustaining and virtually self-sufficient, and combines proven technologies with leading innovations in receiving and treating dewatered sewage sludge from sewage treatment works.

The facility's building derives inspiration from the sea and hills of Deep Bay and will provide a distinct landmark along the northwest coast of Hong Kong. Its wave-form structure has been designed by leading French architects Vasconi & Associates and developed by local architect and engineers, P&T.

Also included in the project will be an Environmental Education Centre to foster community education and engagement, along with landscaped gardens and the creation of a habitat for water birds.
