MLIT established the Japan Construction International Award in 2017. Through
this award, MLIT aims to promote global understanding of the Japanese companies'
competitiveness and expects more projects to be carried out by Japanese
companies. The Japan Construction International Award has become a symbol of
"quality infrastructure" which commends (1) overseas construction projects which
demonstrate Japan's strengths and (2) small and medium-sized construction
companies which play active and leading roles overseas. This is the first such
award to be bestowed on Toshiba group.
In 2014, TWS concluded a contract with Uttar Pradesh Jal Nigam (UPJN) for the
project undertaken by the Indian government as part of its efforts to clean the
Ganges. This project involves the designing and construction of a sewage treatment
plant in Salori, Uttar Pradesh, including a main pump station, and a 10-year
contract for the O&M of the plant.
TWS was highly regarded by the community for its initiatives towards sewage
development, laying a foundation for the continuous participation in government
projects, including those for the Ganges.
For this project, TWS offered a kind of activated sludge process called the
Sequential Batch Reactor (SBR) process(*1), which helps to reduce the land area,
construction period, and operating costs required while conforming to the Indian
government's required standard for the quality of the treated water. For the
designing and construction of the plant, TWS also emphasized a reduction in life
cycle costs by using easily available and easy-to-maintain equipment.
In addition, TISS and TWS proactively trained local engineers. The Indian
engineers and Japanese engineers cooperated as one on the process and cost
management, completing the project within stipulate time. The plant has been
operating smoothly since its commencement in 2016.
Leveraging the award, Toshiba group will expand its water treatment business in
India and elsewhere to establish sustainable water recycling systems and thereby
contribute to the creation of environmentally advanced communities.
