Performance centered Operation and Management Contract

  • Plant operations of Dihua and Neihu plants adopted performance centered “Purchase of Service” contract to replace the traditional “Purchase of Labor” contract.
  • An incentive mechanism is set up to encourage vendors to improve both quality and quantity of treated water, where poor water quality will result in reduced subsidy.
  • Set upenergy/resource subsidize mechanism to encourage vendors for energy saving and carbon deduction.
  • Adopted ROT spirit by integrating equipment renewal with operations and maintenance of the equipment for increased efficiency and improved water quality.

Sewage treatment plant station equipment renovation project

Renewal Projects took place in Dihua Plant, Neihu Plant, Bali Plant and Pumping/Boosting Stations for the inferior quality in the treated water resulting from the aged equipment and poor performance.

Dihua Sewage Treatment Plant Renewal Project

  • Since the Dihua Sewage Treatment Plant upgraded to Class-2 in 2007, its equipment has become aged again after 15 + years have elapsed gradually; some facilities have come near to or passed the end of their service life. For getting expected sewage treatment, a further update project of the Plant has started since 2019.
  • For ensuring and improving treatment effectiveness and stability, the update project is implemented in 4 phases, 3 years each, for a total of 12 years from July 2020 to June 2032
  • In Phase 1 (July 2019 to June 2023), aged facilities such as blowers, deodorizer plant, fine bar screens, scum collection system, etc. are replaced, for improving the integral performance of operations and for achieving goals for energy saving and carbon reduction as well as for the stability in water quality and flow amount.

Current Implementations:

Project FundingTotal Budget of Project: NT$446.5million
Construction PeriodJuly 2019 to June 2023
Construction ProgressScheduled 93.32%; actual 99.6%; advanced by 6.28%
GoalsTo replace old equipment with high-performance products and introduce automated control to achieve energy savings and reduce carbon emissions.

Neihu Sewage Treatment Plant Renewal Project

  • Since its commencement in 2003, Neihu Sewage Treatment Plant has operated for 19 years now, some of its existing facilities have reached or passed their service life span. In 2020, the SSO entrusted a professional consulting company to carry out an update of the respective mechanical facilities, electrical/instrumental control and function tests in the entire plant based on “function update evaluation for all facilities within the Neihu Sewage Treatment Plant.”
  • For ensuring and improving treatment effectiveness and stability of Neihu Plant as well as minimizing risks of centralized sewage treatment in Taipei City , the update project is implemented in 4 phases, 3 years each, for a total of 12 years from July 2021 to June 2033.
  • In Phase 1 (July 2021 to June 2024), the replacement of aged facilities such as pumps, blowers, circulating sludge pump, control systems, etc., is prioritized, for improving integral performance of operations and for achieving goals for energy savings and carbon reduction as well as for the stability in water quality and flow amount. Aeration facilities are added in front of effluent channels to increase oxygen content in the effluent, thereby being more protective to the water quality of the Keelung River during the dry season.
  • In order to stabilize water quality of the Keelung River and to improve sewage treatment performance of the entire city, the Neihu Plant is planned to have an early upgrade to Class-3 by June 2027; mainly for increasing a 10um disk-type filter at the end of the disinfection tank, purposed for achieving an effluent quality of BOD≦5.0mg/L with ammonia nitrogen ≦4mg/L. In the future, 3 sewage treatment plants along the Keelung River will positively benefit the water quality in the river.

Taipei City Pumping Station Equipment Renewal Project

  • Taipei City currently has 4 sewage pumping stations, 33 sewage pumping(water pressure boosting) stations and 14 interception stations. It has been several to more than 20 years since the construction was completed. The relevant equipment in the stations has gradually become obsolete and some functions have become obsolete, affecting normal operations. In order to maintain the normal functions of the station, an equipment update plan is carried out to maintain the transportation function of the huge system.
  • Due to the increasing number of existing station facilities, in order to facilitate the execution of station facility maintenance operations and improve efficiency, equipment improvements and replacements will effectively improve the availability of various equipment in the station and make the system more stable.
  • The first phase of the Pumping Station Equipment Renewal Project (2020-2023) was completed on November 28, 2023, renew the following equipment:
    • Inlet gate crane equipment, submersible sewage pumps, mechanical sewage rack equipment, energy-saving lamps, air blower equipment, electrical panels, liquid level controllers, monitoring (visualization) systems and etc
  • The second phase of Pumping Station Equipment Renewal Project (2023-2025 ) is open for bidding now.

Current Progress:
