Water treatment solutions in Indonesia
Approximately twenty percent of Indonesian households have access to piped treated drinking water. The combination of rapid economic growth, urbanization and depleting groundwater resources creates a real need for additional water treatment and supply systems.
For forty years, Witteveen+Bos has been contributing to the improvement of access to safe drinking water in Indonesia. Nevertheless, the market for designing water purification plants is strongly represented by local EPC contractors. In order to increase our activity in the sector, a unique cooperative partnership was created this year with Engeldot Water, an expanding family business, based in the Netherlands, and specialized in developing and manufacturing sustainable, high quality water treatment and purification systems. The EPC company is highly active in Indonesia and is currently installing a plant in Kota Tua, Jakarta.
Engeldot benefits from Witteveen+Bos’ local presence and expertise for technical assistance, contract management, and construction supervision. In return, we benefit from Engeldot’s penetration in the Indonesian drinking water sector. Together, the companies are submitting several proposals for new installations with capacities ranging from 50 L/s to 1,200 L/s.
