Chairman of the board of GSTT Professor Jens Hölterhoff presented the bronze award to the representatives of Vattenfall Europe Wärme AG on behalf of Arge Düker Müggelspree, which completed a district heating supply line that crosses beneath the River Spree. The silver award went to the community of Oss in the Netherlands for its rehabilitation, using liners, of a 1.5-m wide sewage canal, a construction project that it undertook for the first time. The GSTT gold award went to the Essen-based Emschergenossenschaft for its construction of a 47-km long stretch (section 30) of a new canal transporting dirty water. This represents the largest trenchless construction project in Europe. The foreign award went to the National Water Company of Saudi Arabia for its completion of a wastewater collector in Mecca.
