Chinese students learn about advanced wastewater disposal technologies


Today, on August 7, specialists of SUE "Vodokanal of St. Petersburg" made a tour to the South-West Wastewater Treatment Plant (SWTP) for the delegation of the Chinese students who came to have on-the-job training in St. Petersburg.

Students of Henan University of Urban Construction from the district of Pingdingshan were invited to exchange experiences in the field of water and wastewater treatment technologies. The students learnt the theory in Saint-Petersburg State University of Architecture and Civil Engineering the longtime partner of Vodokanal. And they had the practice at the South-West Wastewater Treatment Plant. The whole wastewater treatment process from the booster sewerage pumping station to the sludge incineration plant was shown to them at the plant.

The Chinese colleagues are not accidentally interested in innovations. According to the trainees, a state program for resettlement of village people to the city is currently under development in China. This requires development of urban infrastructure and utilities. Therefore, new knowledge and experience in these fields are so important for the young specialists.

Chinese students believe that cooperation with St. Petersburg Vodokanal will continue, and young professionals will study in St. Petersburg. Let us recall, last year, Vodokanal specialists visited the Harbin Water Supply Corporation. Our delegation went to China to tell about advanced water treatment and water supply technologies.

SUE “Vodokanal of St. Petersburg” interacts both with foreign and Russian students. Tens of the city students have practice and on-the job training at the company facilities every year. In 2016, the company signed 21 partnership agreement with educational institutions. In the nearest future, the agreement between SUE “Vodokanal of St. Petersburg” and the St. Petersburg regional branch of MOOO “Russian student teams” will be executed.
