Parand New Town WWTP
Tehran, the Capital of Iran is titled as one of the most crowded cities in the world with the population of over 12 million and therefore, growing population and city extension during the last two decades, have led to air pollution and huge traffic which are considered as the main problems of this city and these matters caused government experts to seek for effective solutions and finally the proposal of “The Transmission of Administrative Capital and 18 Ministries with the Subsidiary Departments” was approved in 2011, through which, a lot of government staff and customers along with their traffic would move from Tehran.
Following the subject, the primary studies for the new location began and finally, the newly established city of Parand located 30 Km from south west of Tehran was recognized the most suitable place for its unique strategic location with accessibility to the main highways of Qom and Saveh cities and proximity with Imam Khomeini international airport (IKA) and also constructing Tehran to Parand Metro line.
At the first phase of the project, 400 ha of land was reserved for transferring the ministries. Due to the first priority for the ministry of urban development during the 10th government was to quickly build and accomplish the foundation of the city, the construction of Parand waste water treatment plant was put to tender in the year of 2012.
Based on the importance and necessity of acceleration of the project, a joint venture of Civil & Electromechanical contractors was formed to proceed the operation.
Sadrab Sanat company has had the honor of winning the tender among some of Iranians leading company’s and considering the significance of time schedule of the project execution and emphasis of consulting engineers at Ray-Ab company in all stages.
