Haya Water is planning to invest $2.6bn (OMR 1bn) in Omani sewage projects over the next six years, Times of Oman reports.

Hussain Hassan Ali Abdul Hussain, chief executive of Haya Water, said that as many as 12 projects are under implementation now, which include one each sewage treatment plant in Seeb and Darsait, nine pipeline network projects and other small projects.

Speaking at the Oman Investment Forum, Hussain said Hussain said his company has built 550km of sewerage network and 250km of pipelines for treated water. This will be increased to 4,000km of sewerage network and 2,000km of treated water network when the project completes in 2018.

The company has already invested $1.8bn (OMR 700m) for building various projects, which include sewage treatment plants, pipelines and other facilities.

Currently, 40,000 houses (20% of Muscat’s total) have been connected to the sewage network and the company is targeting to connect 200,000 houses or commercial properties (80%) in Muscat when the project is complete by 2018, according to Hussain,

The Haya Water chief also said that his company is planning to supply treated water for 400 farmers in Barka, who are facing problems due to salinated water entering farms.
