Bekkelaget wastewater treatment plant purifies 40 per cent of Oslo’s wastewater. The plant is overloaded and cannot meet new environmental requirements. When the plant was constructed in 2001, it was designed for 270,000 people. Today, wastewater for 300,000 people are treated.
The expansion of the plant will increase the capacity to be able to handle wastewater from 500,000 people, which is the expected amount of wastewater for the year 2040. The plant will be ready for opening in 2020.
