The contract was signed in a function held this Thursday by Minister of Environment and Energy, Toriq Ibrahim and CEO of MTCC, Ibrahim Ziyath.

MTCC has been contracted to complete its MVR 130.65 million project within 15 months. It includes a 38 kilometer sanitation network and a 3,387-ton sewage treatment plant.

Building sanitation systems in Hulhudhoo and Meedhoo was contracted to Sierra Construction Private Limited.
