Le Mans Métropole awards contract to CFSP

19 October 2017

Veolia, through its subsidiary CFSP, has been selected by Le Mans Métropole for the contract for its La Chauvinière wastewater treatment plant.

Worth a total of approximately EUR 60M, or 16.38M for the construction of the new facilities by OTV-Veolia and EUR 43.5M for nine years’ operation, this contract reflects the aim to build a truly circular economy around wastewater with the installation of an anaerobic digester and the introduction of various innovative processes.

Work on the anaerobic digester will begin in 2018 for commissioning scheduled at the end of 2020. It will allow the La Chauvinière plant to produce energy in the form of biomethane from wastewater.

Already in 2018, Veolia will introduce innovations to help make the La Chauvinière plant a virtuous model committed to minimizing the energy consumed by the plant and its facilities, while also developing new technology.

With cutting-edge digital tools, the La Chauvinière wastewater treatment plant will be entirely managed by an integrated Hypervision 360 control center that will use all service data and information to continuously optimize operation and production.
