WABAG will execute Engineering, Procurement and Construction (‘EPC’) portion of Sewage Treatment Plant under HAM, this project over 24 months followed by O&M of 15 years. The STPs will produce renewable energy from biogas to run the plants leading to lower operational expenses.

This project comprises of a Design, Build and Operate (DB0′) scope worth Rs 940 crore and Hybrid Annuity Model (HAM) scope worth around INR 247 crore. The EPC portion of the Hybrid Annuity Scope is to be funded through a mix of NMCG Grant, Equity and Debt. 40 per cent will be funded by the NMCG grant during construction period and balance 60 per cent will be funded by a mix of debt and equity.

To meet the project debt funding requirement, WABAG has partnered with PTC India Financial Services.
