Customer Case

Wastewater treatment plant, Csepel


(Hungary)

Key Figures Customer Profile


15% design cost reduction Genesis of the project
Today in Budapest, Hungary, 600 000 m3/day of wastewater is discharged into the Danube. 46 % of this water is not
treated at all.
95% of wastewater treated instead
In 2002, Hungarian Program for Treatment of Waste Water specified that Budapest City has to comply in 2010 with the
of 54%
objectives of the 1994 Sophia Convention, which aimed at the protection of the Danube. The treated water has to comply
with EU standards.

Customer objective

The two objectives of the city involve the construction of a plant capable of treating effluents generated by a population of
1,5 millions habitants.
Veolia and Suez are leading the consortium designing this wastewater treatment plant with a capacity of 350000 m3/ day,
the largest of the European Union. For this, the consortium needs a unique partner taking the full responsibility of the
process and energy management solution completion: Schneider Electric.

Customer benefits
