'Modernisation of the sewage treatment plant is another project in the city executed by Mostostal Warszawa. For the MGPK we modernised Water Treatment Plant Sieniawa a few years back. We also extended the municipal waste utilisation plant and prepared for investment an area covering 38 ha and surrounding the southern border of the airport in Krosno. Now, we are going to be the general contractor for another ecological project in the region. It feels good to be back in Krosno. This is one of those places with which we are connected through cooperation', underlined president Goławski.
