Eda Ranu to take over K369 million sewerage project


EDA Ranu will take over of the K369 million Port Moresby Sewerage System Upgrade Project once it is completed, says managing director Henry Mokono.
The project is jointly funded by the Japan International Cooperation Agency and the PNG Government and is located at Joyce Bay in Moresby South.
Kumul Consolidated Holdings is the implementing agency for the Government.
“The project is on target, according to engineers and contractors,” Mokono said.
“We’ve been informed that it’s almost 68 per cent complete.
“The contractor and KCH, who are the project managers, will deliver the project about April or May next year in time for Apec.
“Discussions are already at an advanced stage and we’ve been advised that the Japanese prime minister, when he’s here for Apec, will officially open the facility.
“It’s a major project for Port Moresby.
“All contractors and sub-contractors are working hard to deliver the facility on time and on budget.”
KCH managing director Thomas Abe said recently the project was to rehabilitate the existing infrastructure to improve the sanitary and living conditions of the people in the southern coastal catchment of Port Moresby.
Construction began in April 2016.
The lead contractor for the project is Dai Nippon – Hitachi JV and the supervising engineer is NJS, both Japanese companies.
“The new sewage treatment plant will comprise a grit chamber, four oxidation ditches, four sedimentation tanks, sludge building, administration building, and chemical laboratory.”
