Design and construction of leachate treatment plant on “Livade” landfill in Podgorica, Montenegro
Regional center for solid waste management “Livade” in Podgorica is a sanitary landfill constructed in Montenegro with the purpose to serve for Podgorica, Cetinje and Danilovgra municipalities. When constructed, question of treatment of leachate water was not elaborated in details. Therefore, Deponija LTD, a municipal company in charge of landfill management, launched a tender for design and construction of leachate treatment plant.
LTD Deponija as Investor and KARKANIAS S.A. on 25th July 2013 signed a contract for design and construction of leachate treatment plant for the total amount of 1.683.055,00€.
Our company provided complete design and constructed plant with capacity of 80 m3 per day. Treated liquid must be purified up to the level that it can be discharged into the sewerage network.

Taking over certificate was issued and our company currently fully operates the plant, in accordance with the contract.
