JEC Takes Part In Upgrading Yuen Long Sewage Treatment Works

12 Jul 2022

JEC has been awarded a significant contract by Drainage Service Department to carry out electrical and mechanical works for Yuen Long Effluent Polishing Plant Stage 1 (YLEPP).

The project is an upgrade project of the existing Yuen Long Sewage Treatment Works. This iconic project will be transformed to tertiary treatment level to meet the growing development needs of the region and minimise adverse environmental impact on Deep Bay ecosystem. The scopes of work include electrical and mechanical works for sludge dewatering building, administration building and renewable energy facilities for Stage 1 of Yuen Long Effluent Polishing Plant. After the completion of overall improvement plan, the treatment capacity will be increased from 70,000m³/day to 150,000m³/day .

One of the design features of YLEPP will maximise the potential of energy generation. JEC will install renewable energy facilities, including extensive provision of PV system and 3 high-efficient CHP system generating sets. YLEPP will become one of the largest solar power generation facilities in Hong Kong upon commissioning. The project is expected to be completed in 2026.
