Project Description:

The city of Jiamusi in the North-Western Heilongjiang Province implements the Jiaxi wastewater treatment project for the Western city districts with a capacity of 100,000 m³/d. The treatment process comprises advanced biological treatment according to the activated sludge process supplemented by a filtration stage in order to comply with the advanced treatment standards. The investment for the electro-mechanical equipment and dedicated parts of the civil structures are co-financed by KfW Development Bank.

Sustainable disposal of the sewage sludge is the particular focus within the frame of the project. Therefore, IMS developed a sewage sludge disposal concept and evaluated feasible solutions for the Jiaxi WWTP, which resulted in the implementation of a solar sludge drying plant as part of the project.


IMS provides technical assistance to the Project Executing Agency during project preparation and implementation with a team of experts:

  • Review of design and tender documents
  • Monitoring of the tendering procedure, tender evaluation, contract negotiation and contracting
  • Time, cost and quality control during project implementation
  • Preparation of a concept for sustainable sewage sludge disposal
  • Assistance during design, tendering and implementation of a solar sludge drying plant
