Manila Water records 2M safe man-hours for Rizal water supply project
Manila Water, together with its contractors, construction consortium SC-OTV composed of Sta. Clara International Corporation (SCIC) and Veolia Water Technologies, and project management consultant GHD, recently recorded two million safe man-hours without lost time for accident in the construction of the water treatment facility of the Rizal Province Water Supply Improvement Project (RPWSIP) in Cardona, Rizal.
The P6-billion project requires the development of a water treatment facility capable of treating up to 100 million liters per day (MLD) of potable water, transmission mainlines, and distribution lines.
The new water system is expected to benefit an estimated 788,000 residents in seven municipalities of Rizal Province by 2018.
Manila Water said this milestone is a testament to its commitment to uphold quality project execution and promote a culture of safety in all facilities and construction.
“This significant accomplishment was achieved through the discipline of all partners and because, on top of its commitment to deliver quality water and used water services, Manila Water aims to make sure all is safe while working towards the completion of our projects,” Maidy Lynne Quinto, Manila Water Operations Group Director for Corporate Project Management, said.
The water treatment facility component of the RPWSIP currently employs close to 2,000 workers.
