Technical Visit to Siu Ho Wan Sewage Treatment Works
Siu Ho Wan Sewage Treatment Works is a chemically enhanced primary sewage treatment (CEPT) plant located in North Lantau Island. A solar farm was commissioned in the plant, which is currently the largest one in Hong Kong. Commissioned in 1998, the treatment capacity of CEPT was upgraded in 2004 to 180,000 m3 per day. To reduce energy consumption, a solar farm with estimated annual electricity generation of 1,100,000 kW hours was commissioned in the plant, which is equivalent to 25% of electricity consumption of the plant. The visit will allow participants to explore the operation and strategies of CEPT on energy-saving.
