Water Supply and Sanitation

The Fichtner Group is engaged worldwide in projects for drinking water production from groundwater, surface water and seawater. To the fore for drinking water supply in rural just as in urban regions is efficient and sustainable exploitation of water resources. Playing a key role for protecting these resources is proper sanitation and wastewater treatment.

Our water experts design concepts and plan drinking water treatment plants and water supply networks as well as supervise implementation of municipal water projects, ranging from decentralized well projects for rural water supply to sophisticated drinking water treatment plants and systems for megacities. They also bring their experience and technical know-how to bear when rehabilitating existing inadequate networks and, alongside reducing technical water losses, also address optimization of managerial aspects through concepts for strengthening administrations.

For sanitation, our engineers plan complex sewer networks at all scales. The design of pumping stations with high capacity wastewater transfer pipelines is often an integral part of our projects. Further, we plan wastewater and sewage treatment plants to meet virtually all technical requirements and we have on hand specialist know-how for industrial wastewater treatment. Wastewater recycling is playing an increasingly important role in water utilization concepts throughout the world and we take this into account in our planning.
