Dec. 12 (Bloomberg) — Drake & Scull International PJSC said its German subsidiary won water-treatment contracts in Romania that include building a plant in Sibiu to produce drinking water for as many as 200,000 people.

Passavant-Roediger GmbH’s contracts were worth almost $25 million for the river treatment award, for pipes to supply water to Cisnadie and to replenish reservoirs in Romania, which is striving to comply with the European Union’s water framework directive.

A wastewater project in the eastern town of Roman that was earlier announced made up the balance of orders. Drake, the Dubai-based supplier of engineering services to the construction industry, acquired Passavant in 2009 to expand in the water and wastewater sector.
