Water and Wastewater Management Development in Romania

FRD Center has been monitoring the development of the water and wastewater management infrastructure in Romania, particularly in the context of the EU-funding available through the 2014-2020 Large Infrastructure Program.

According to the Romanian European Funds Ministry, 83% of the 11.88 billion EUR available under the Large Infrastructure Program was allocated to project-calls launched during 2016.

Two of the projects that will continue in 2017, funded with 1.7 billion RON (approx. 378 million EUR) are the Glina Wastewater Treatment Plant, as well as the rehabilitation of the Dambovita main collector sewer and sewer network in Bucharest.

The two projects aim to further improve wastewater infrastructure sector in Bucharest for the fulfillment of compliance with EU membership commitments and with intermediate targets agreed between the European Commission and the Romanian Government for implementation of Directive 91/271 EC on the collection and treatment of urban wastewater.

Other municipality that is committed to improving the water and wastewater management is Arad (W Romania). The value of investments proposed in the period 2014-2020, benefitting from the Large Infrastructure Program funding, amounts to over 123 million EUR, of which:
  • Water Infrastructure projects: over 35 million euro
  • Wastewater infrastructure projects: over 87 million euro
Practically all the municipalities have applied for funding for their water infrastructure projects in 2016. The maximum funding per commune is 2.5 million EUR dedicated to water and wastewater infrastructure setting and 1.5 million EUR for expansion of this infrastructure.

FRD Center considers that there are numerous opportunities for foreign companies involved in cleantech, utilities management, automation for utilities, waste management technologies to do business in Romania.

Should the developments and opportunities in the Water and Wastewater Management sector in Romania and in other Emerging Markets in Europe be of interest to you perhaps we can collaborate.
