T ▪ PARK represents a new step towards a greener Hong Kong. Opening to the public in June, the HK$5 billion project was designed and built by VW-VES (HK) Ltd, a subsidiary of French conglomerate Veolia, which also operates the facility. Veolia Chairman and CEO Antoine Frérot said the project can serve as a reference for the water industry. “It shows what the water treatment plants of the future will be. The result of fruitful cooperation between company entities and several partners, not least the Hong Kong Government, this plant is a prime example of the revolution underway in the environmental industries, one in which Veolia plays a pioneering role.” Noting that the “T” in T ▪ PARK stands for transformation, Hong Kong Secretary for the Environment Wong Kam-sing said at the facility’s May opening ceremony, that it signified Hong Kong’s commitment to transforming waste into energy.
