The WWTP serves two drainage areas on both sides of the Danube. The "Pest" side is draining to one major pumping station which is connected to the WWTP with a pressure line and a river crossing. The "Buda" side is hilly and drains towards the Danube.

A collector has been installed along the Danube including two major pumping stations and pressure pipelines. Two pressure pipelines have been constructed under the Danube river bed. Sludge is treated by composting with other green waste.

The WWTP has been constructed to FIDIC Design Build and Operate Procedure (Golden Book), and the Pumping Stations and sewers to FIDIC Employers Design (Red Book) Conditions of Contract.

In detail this Project comprised the following works:

  • Construction of the Buda Danube-Bank Main Collector at the Buda embankment together with the widening of the road on the embankment (total length 6 km)
  • Reconstruction of the Kelenföld pumping station and construction of a pressure main to transfer the "Buda" side wastewater to the central WWTP
  • Reconstruction of the Albertfalva pumping station and construction of a pressure main to the Kelenföld pumping station
  • Reconstruction of the Ferecváros pumping station and construction of a pressure main to transfer the "Pest” side wastewater to the central WWTP
