Water technology company Xylem Inc has won a contract to work with Essar Projects (India) Ltd to install a biological treatment system in a wastewater plant in Jamnagar.

Under the contract, the US—based firm will install its `Sanitaire’ biological treatment system in the facility.

Xylem will be responsible for the installation as well as providing service and maintenance for the 70 million litres per day capacity wastewater treatment plant for the Jamnagar Municipal Corporation, the company said.

The treated wastewater will be reused for non—potable industrial purposes, providing a cheaper alternative to the region’s reliance on water from the Narmada River.

“We are proud to be working with Essar Projects to install this treatment system to help solve the water issues in Jamnagar,” Xylem India Manging Director H Bala said today.

“This project showcases our extensive expertise and advanced wastewater technology solutions. We are committed to meeting our customers’ needs and are confident that we are providing the best solutions in the industry,” he said.

Xylem employs 200 people in India and operates a manufacturing and testing facility as well as a Research, Development and Engineering Centre on Vadodara’s outskirts.

Xylem is a leading global water technology provider, enabling customers to transport, treat, test and efficiently use water in public utility, residential and commercial building services, industrial and agricultural settings.
