In a statement, Saligni Impregilo revealed that Genoa-based Fisia Italimpianti and its joint-venture partners, Alkatas and Alke, will develop the plant in the city’s Yenikapi neighbourhood, for Istanbul Su ve Kanalizasyon Idaresi (ISKI), a municipal water utility.


The project is expected to take 36 months to deliver and will treat 450,000m3 of wastewater per day upon completion.
