DSD's Harbour Area Treatment Scheme Stage 2A wins international award (Date: 19 April 2016)
DSD’s Harbour Area Treatment Scheme (HATS) Stage 2A and EPD’s sludge treatment facility T. PARK jointly won the distinction award in the category of Wastewater Project of the Year at the Global Water Awards 2016. The encouraging achievement recognized internationally the Hong Kong Government’s effort in improving the water quality of the Victoria Harbour and sludge treatment.

The award presentation was held on 19 April in Abu Dhabi. Established in 2006 by Global Water Intelligence, the Global Water Awards recognise and reward those initiatives in the water, wastewater and desalination sectors that are moving the industry forward through improved operating performance, innovative technology adoption and sustainable financial models.

HATS improves the water quality of the Victoria Harbour by collecting and treating the sewage generated on both sides of the harbour. After commissioning of HATS Stage 1 in 2001, the water quality of the harbour improved markedly which enabled the previously halted Cross Harbour Swimming Competition to be resumed in 2011 and the beaches in Tsuen Wan to be reopened progressively. Since the full commissioning of HATS Stage 2A late last year, sewage either side of the harbour has now been delivered to Stonecutters Island Sewage Treatment Works (SCISTW) for centralized treatment, enabling it to serve 5.7 million citizens ultimately. The sludge generated by SCISTW is delivered to EPD’s T. PARK at Tsang Tsui, Tuen Mun for incineration which reduces its volume by 90 per cent, thereby not only substantially reducing the loading on landfills but also generates low-carbon energy. The judge of the award acclaimed that the neat dovetailing of the numerous infrastructure components of the above two projects reflected a uniquely holistic and forward-thinking approach to municipal wastewater and environmental management which enabled them to win the award.
