I.Metshin: “The resources of the new station will allow us to develop infrastructure in the western part of the city”
Today, the Mayor of Kazan Ilsur Metshin visited the new water treatment
plant of Kazanorgsintez PJSC. The complex with modern treatment technology will
supply the enterprise with drinking water, as well as the Salavat Kupere residential
“Every day Kazan
residents have a growing demand for high-quality water, and we pay great
attention to this issue and the modernization of city services. The resources
of the new station will allow us to develop housing infrastructure in the
western part of the city, – I.Metshin said, stressing that the facility has a
good reserve capacity. – Presently, there are 56 residential buildings with
21,000 residents at the Salavat Kupere, and the district will continue to
develop. Thanks to the Kazanorgsintez water treatment plant, all residents will
be supplied with drinking water”.
The new water
treatment unit, the construction of which was carried out for 4 years, was
fully financed by Kazanorgsintez PJSC. The complex is equipped with an 8,000
cub.m tank, capable of processing over 40 thousand cubic meters of water per
day. It will jointly operate with the first unit launched in 1983, which
consists of two sections and is capable of processing 100 thousand cubic meters
commissioning of the modern complex will allow the overhaul of the first block
and the modernization of the entire station. By 2025, after completion of the
work, the total production capacity of the two water treatment units will be
about 140 thousand cubic meters of water per day.
The water in the
complex undergoes a two-stage purification system using eco-friendly
technologies. “In the second block, great attention is paid to environmental
standards. The water is used at homes of residents of the Salavat Kupere
district, and is also used for industrial purposes”, – said Farid Minigulov,
CEO of Kazanorgsintez PJSC.
He noted that
the purification technology used in the block made it possible to abandon
liquid chlorine and use much safer sodium hypochlorite. For reference, Kazan
Vodokanal switched to this technology in 2014. At the same time, the substance
is produced from domestic salt by electrolysis method at Kazanorgsintez.
In addition, the
water treatment plant is equipped with unique Russian-made catalytic filters
that purify the air before supplying clean water to the tank.
The new water
treatment unit is 98% equipped with domestic equipment.
“The system of the new water treatment complex
is fully optimized and is located on a small area: the reservoir is
underground, above it there are treatment facilities, and above them there is a
building with an operator room”, – Rashid Mulikhov, head of the department of
treatment facilities and utilities of Kazanorgsintez PJSC, told the head of the
city. He drew attention to the fact that today in Russia there is only one such
vertical water treatment plant built according to a similar project.
