Blom has signed a contract to deliver technical assistance for the “Extension and rehabilitation of water and wastewater infrastructure in Hunedoara County, Romania”. The expected value of the agreement is approximately €3M and will start in 2012, lasting for an estimated period of 43 months.
As part of the project Blom will supply technical assistance and supervision for the extension and rehabilitation of infrastructure for water and waste water treatment.
The contract confirms that Blom's strategy to expand its activity in the growing economies in Central and Eastern Europe continues to yield results. The contract also cements that the company has successfully been able to expand into new services to its established customer base in this region.
The infrastructure in many Eastern European countries has a significant need for renovation and expansion. During the last years funding for this kind of projects has increasingly been made available by, among others, the EU and the World Bank. Blom has experienced an increased level of public tenders related to infrastructure projects, of which the water and waste water management project in Hunedoara County, Romania, is an example.
