The conversion of the Emscher system is a task of extraordinary dimensions, technically and financially. Several decades will pass between its kickoff and its completion.
In future, wastewater from the Emscher and its tributaries will be channelled into closed conduits, while the river and its tributaries will be converted into natural waterways, step by step. The Emscher sewage canal is being built along the stretch of river from Dortmund-Deusen to the confluence with the Rhine near Dinslaken, a gigantic construction 51 kilometres long and reaching depths of 40 metres: the world’s most modern wastewater system.
The project‘s size and complexity make it necessary to split work on the Emscher sewage canal into several phases of construction. In the spring of 2010 a Europe-wide tendering and award procedure was launched, open to a broad, international range of interested parties. The companies charged with carrying out this contract will be responsible in particular for ensuring the prescribed high quality of the construction work.
