The loan has been provided to finance a municipal investment programme to expand the capacity of the wastewater treatment system. The investment programme includes the replacement of private wastewater treatment installations with connections to the centralised sewage collection network, the extension of this network to new residential areas, and upgrades to wastewater treatment by installing new aeration tanks, anoxic tanks, settling tanks and sludge treatment. The expansion of the wastewater treatment system is expected to increase capacity by almost 60%. Ängelholm is located in southern Sweden and has approximately 41,000 inhabitants
Fulfilment of NIB's mandate
Ängelholm is experiencing rapid population growth. Well-functioning sewage collection and efficient wastewater treatment are crucial in reducing the stresses caused by humans on the environment.
The project will not cause any significant environmental issues during the construction phase.
