Megawide bags 1st water engineering project
Off to a great start, Megawide Construction Corp bagged a P2 billion contract to design and build Maynilad Water Services Inc.’s Las Pinas water reclamation facility.
Megawide, headed by its chairman Edgar Saavedra, partnered with Toshiba Group’s UEM India Pvt. Ltd., and local company LinkENERGIE Industries to deliver the design and construction components of Maynilad’s newest treatment facility.
The project, once completed, will allow the water company to recover some 88 million liters per day (MLD) of potable water, which will be sufficient to supply 88,000 households.
“We partnered with UEM and LinkENERGIE to ensure delivery of the highest quality standards. UEM brings solid international experience in creating water treatment facilities and we are looking forward applying their world-class standards to this project,” Saavedra said.
UEM is an international environmental services company that specializes in water and wastewater collection, treatment, and disposal. It has a solid presence in the USA, Trinidad & Tobago, and India. It was acquired by the Toshiba Group in 2015.
Saavedra said they are actively looking at projects that have a big impact on nation building following its multi-year diversification plan.
“This is a project that will greatly benefit Greater Manila and adjacent provinces. “We are proud to be a partner of Maynilad in this endeavor and we are looking forward to pursuing more projects in this industry,” Saavedra said.
