Technical Seminar: Sha Tau Kok Sewage Treatment Works Expansion

Date, time & venue


**Registration is now closed because the seminar has reached full capacity.**

Organized by EVD via Webinar

Programme Highlights

The existing Sha Tau Kok Sewage Treatment Works (STKSTW) serves Sha Tau Kok town area in the northern New Territories neighboring the mainland.  With the objective of meeting the continuing development needs in Sha Tau Kok area, STKSTW is undergoing expansion to increase the treatment capacity from 1,660m3/day to 5,000m3/day with provisions for further increase to 10,000m3/day in future.


The seminar will present the strategy that enables expanding the treatment capacity by 6 times within the existing footprint while maintaining the sewage treatment services for the communities without any interruptions.  The adopted state-of-art compact treatment technologies will improve the quality of treated effluent to be discharged into the Starling Inlet via a 1.7km submarine outfall.  The outfall will be constructed with trenchless technology to minimize dredging and other construction activities in the water. The discharge location is also meticulously selected to minimize impacts to the fishing resources, fishing operations, fish culture activities and other ecological resources in the marine environment.  The commitment to sustainable development is exercised and demonstrated in every step throughout the development of the expansion project.


The project team will also share their experience in the management of a NEC3 Option C contract.  Partnership is built on mutual trust and collaboration by paying concerted efforts in problem solving, risk mitigation, and timely delivery of critical works.  Since contract commencement in November 2018, the contract has achieved major milestones and achievements including completion of a multi-level site office within 2 months with modular integrated construction, application of digital supervision, expedited concrete construction with off-site fabrication of reinforcing steel, enhanced safety with smart helmets, on-track for on-time commissioning of the temporary sewage treatment within 18 months from contract commencement, and many more.
