Welspun Enterprises Limited (WEL), the infrastructure and energy division of Welspun World, has won a major contract to Develop, Construct, and Manage a 2,000 MLD (million litres per day) Water Treatment Plant (WTP) at the Bhandup Complex in Mumbai, awarded by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), reports Business Standard.

Mumbai’s new water treatment facility is valued at Rs 4,123.88 crore (around $500 million) and aims to address the city's persistent water scarcity issues. Situated within BMC’s Bhandup Complex, which currently caters to Mumbai City's water needs, it also promises to be among the world's largest in capacity. 

WEL has teamed up with Veolia, a leading water technology firm, as its technology partner for this endeavor.

The contract encompasses the design, construction, and operations and maintenance of the plant, with an O&M component of Rs 1,880.44 crore. The project is scheduled for completion within 48 months, after which WEL will manage operations and maintenance for 15 years.

In a press statement, BK Goenka, Chairman, Welspun World, said, “The Bhandup WTP project marks a significant milestone in Welspun Enterprises’ growth journey. I firmly believe that our unwavering focus on technology and innovation will culminate in the development of a world‐class, sustainable water treatment plant, ensuring access to clean water for Mumbai citizens while promoting environmental sustainability.” 

Sandeep Garg, Managing Director, Welspun Enterprises Limited, said, “We are honoured to have been chosen as the preferred bidder by the BMC. With the Bhandup WTP project, WEL has expanded its porƞolio to encompass a comprehensive range of solutions across the entire water spectrum. The water sector continues to be one of the key focus areas for us and this order synergises well with our overall growth strategy. Our strong capabilities and proven track record in delivering high value and critical infrastructure projects stand us in good stead to bag significant opportunities in future. Our team is fully committed to ensuring the highest standards of quality and efficiency in delivering this project, reflecting our unwavering dedication to excellence.”
