Acvatot – Case Studies

ACVATOT  S.R.L., part of Veolia Group, executes utility works – water, sewerage, gas, heating, lighting, road works – for public and private clients. 

The projects the company undertakes have a high degree of complexity and a significant impact in the places where they are implemented. They require considerable investments and are aimed at increasing quality of life in the communities concerned, while minimising the pollution, environmental impact and inconvenience caused.  

The following is a selection of the projects undertaken by ACVATOT, which have helped improve the infrastructure and quality of life for the communities where they were implemented:


Expansion of the water and sewerage networks in the village of Breasta, and of the sewerage networks in the village of Bucovăț.  

The project, which is being carried out in the villages of Breasta and Bucovăț, Dolj County, consists of the execution of water supply and sewerage works. The beneficiary is Compania de Apă Oltenia (Oltenia Water Company) and the contract value is RON 30.1 million. 

Length of the water distribution network: 9,141 m 

New connections: 576 pcs. 

Length of the sewerage network: 17,234 m 

Length of the discharge pipe: 3,935 m 

New connections: 1,245 pcs 

New SPAUs: 14 pcs 

Some 15% of the works are executed through non-invasive methods, meaning they do not require open excavation. These procedures have several advantages, including:  

  • The duration of execution through guided horizontal drilling is much shorter than in the case of works carried out through open excavations. 
  • No construction waste is generated, as the excavation material and the waste resulting from the dismantling of the road structure do not require storage.  
  • The air is no longer polluted thanks to the shorter operating time of all the equipment necessary to excavate, fill the ditches and restore the road system. 
  • Since there is no need to produce asphalt mixtures for the restoration of the road system, pollution is significantly reduced.  
  • These procedures avoid the destruction of riverbeds and local wildlife, owing to the extraction of the ballast and sand used to build the road system and install pipelines in the ditches.  

Construction of gas supply pipelines in Eforie, Constanta County 

The project consists of executing a gas supply network in Eforie, aiming to connect all household and industrial consumers in the area to the gas supply system. The beneficiary is the Municipality of Eforie and the project amounts to RON 9.5 million. The gas supply network is 18,947 m long.  

This project helps achieve several important objectives:  

  • Increasing quality of life by improving convenience and hygiene in the buildings in Eforie Nord and Eforie Sud (homes and accommodation facilities).  
  • Increasing the attractiveness of the area through better conditions for businesses to thrive and increasing the productivity of industrial consumers.  
  • Reducing pollution by eliminating the CO2 emissions resulting from the burning of fossil fuels, as well as protecting forestland. 


Construction of the access road to the A2 highway, between km 21+380 – 24+050, left-right, and of the connecting roads  

Through this project, a direct access road was constructed to and from the A2 highway, next to the commune of Brănești, through several roundabouts. The project beneficiary is the Municipality of Brănești, and the value is RON 17.5 million. 

Length/width of the connection road: 2,649 m/7 m 

Roundabouts: 5, with a total area of 6,325 sqm 

Length of the slip road: 529 m 

The main objectives of the project were the following:  

  • Creating easy access to the A2 highway for residents of Brănești, by eliminating a 17 km detour. Drivers coming from eastern Bucharest can now use this access road. 
  • Alleviating traffic, and the resulting delays and CO2 emissions.  



The use of modern, non-invasive procedures significantly reduced the duration of works and the inconvenience for local residents. These solutions minimise long-term environmental impact, by lowering CO2 emissions, and avoiding the destruction of riverbeds, ecosystems and forests.
