In spite of continuous extensions and renovations in its service period, Yangshupu Water Plant, which used to satisfy a quarter of the total water demand in Shanghai, could no longer meet the need of the fast-developing metropolis at the beginning of the new century. In order to fully improve the drinking water quality and meet the increasing demand for water, the plant went through a large-scale technical renovation and transformation.
Yangshupu Water Plant has 4 production lines, each capable of processing 360,000 m3/day. SUEZ NWS is responsible for renovating one of them. The water plant supplies more than 400 million m3 water every year, to meet the industrial and domestic water needs of nearly 2 million citizens in Yangpu, Hongkou, Putuo, Zhabei and Baoshan districts.
By introducing advanced technologies and strict management of SUEZ NWS, the water produced by Yangshupu Water Plant could meet the 106 indicators regulated in National new Standards for Drinking Water Quality, and it was one of the first batch of water enterprises that acquired the ISO9002 quality management system certification.
