Project Description

Nakhchivan City is the capital of Nakhchivan, which is an Azerbaijani exclave (with no direct connection to the mainland). Nakhchivan City is located directly north of the river Aras. Nowadays, Nakhchivan has a total population of around 380,000 inhabitants. Its climate is known for short but very cold (-30°C) winters and long summers with very high temperatures (40°C).

The new wastewater treatment plant is located just 2 km north of the River Aras. It was built by a consortium of BIOWORKS and a local civil contractor. BIOWORKS provided design, supply, and commissioning of the electromechanical equipment. The complete treatment plant is located inside closed buildings. The wastewater treatment plant is based on the MBR (Membrane Bioreactor) process.
