In alignment with the development strategies of the Government of Sri Lanka (GOSL), Puritas together with French based strategic partner Veolia Water, the world’s leader in water & wastewater services, caters to municipal level water and wastewater requirements by providing world class technologies and services in the platform of EPC, DBOT contracts.
Lakdiyatha (Pvt.) Ltd, a joint venture between Puritas and Veolia Water India, is the country’s first ever Build, Operate & Transfer (BOT) project in the water and wastewater sector under Private-Public Partnership (PPP) platform. This project is located in the National Holiday Resort of Passikudah, in the eastern coast of Sri Lanka and capable of treating 750m3/day of wastewater generated from 14 hotels. The treated water is sent back to the same hotel properties for gardening purposes. Both the wastewater and treated water networks run for approximately 12 Km. With a total investment of Rs. 185 million, the project has been in operation since March 2012 for 20 years.
Puritas is now shifting gears to a mega municipal scale water supply project in Matale (Central Sri Lanka) together with OTV (for the treatment plant component) and SADE (for the network component), two subsidiary companies of Veolia Water. The Project Client, National Water Supply & Drainage Board (NWSDB) of Sri Lanka, is planning to set up five different water treatment plants in Matale, Ambanganga, Ukuwela, Udathanna & Raththota which accounts for a total of 75,000 m3 / day capacity of treating raw water. The entire network surpasses 350 km and will provide good quality drinking water for about 350,000 individuals. The project will commence in early 2016.
Parallel to the above mega project, Puritas works closely with NWSDB and Ministry of Water Supply and Drainage to explore other potential water and sewage treatment projects.
