The Hague wastewater treatment plant PPP

We've been the technical advisor to the commercial lending group (including the European Investment Bank) on the first PPP deal in the Dutch water management sector – the Hague wastewater treatment plant.

PPP deal in the Dutch water management sector
The combined plants have a capacity of 1.7M population equivalent
Our lenders' technical advisor role spans the 30-year concession period

This landmark project comprises a 30-year concession for the design, construction and operation of a wastewater treatment plant at Harnaschpolder (capacity 1.3M population equivalent) and the refurbishment and operation of the existing Hague wastewater treatment plant at Houtrust (capacity 0.4M population equivalent). The combined plants will meet stringent EU standards for removing nitrogen and phosphorous before the effluent is discharged to the North Sea.

We acted as technical advisor to the lenders throughout the bid and negotiation phases and then reviewed and monitored the project during construction and operation. The two plants became fully operational in 2008 to meet the European regulations on wastewater quality.

Our work for the lead arrangers began in support of the project company, Delfluent BV – a consortium formed by the Veolia Environnement Group, Delta NV Group, NV Waterbedrijf Europoort, the Rabobank Group, Heijmans NV Group and Strukton Groep NV.

In the period before financial syndication we helped prepare the information memorandum and advised the lenders throughout the project development phase. We've been continuing our role as lenders' technical advisor throughout the operation period.
