Metito has announced a AED14 million deal with The National Bonds LLC in an effort to improve water conservation in the UAE.

The agreement will see Metito constructing, operating and maintaining a 2,000 cubic metre/day sewage treatment plant based in the vicinity of the project that treats sewage collected from the six-building Sky Courts complex on the Dubai-Al Ain road. The plant is expected to be completed in April 2011.

“The Sky Courts water treatment project will be developed using the latest in advanced odour-control systems to lessen the impact on the environment and will be camouflaged to ensure there is no unpleasant view of the facility," Metito said in a statement.

Metito will utilise advanced SBR technology in the treatment of the effluent, an alternative method of wastewater treatment which sees wastewater processed to a high quality suitable for non-restricted irrigation, as per Dubai Municipality standards, and will aid water conservation by negating the need for using freshwater for irrigation.

In addition, a tanker filling station will be available to service surrounding developments in the area, which can utilise the treated water for irrigation purposes, thus further adding to the projects water conservation attributes.

“Water conservation is of vital importance in the UAE and the wider region due to dwindling natural resources and developers have to look at ways to reduce fresh water consumption,” commented Metito Overseas MD Fady Juez.

The Sky Courts development will consist of 2,800 apartments spread across the six buildings, and will feature outdoor swimming pools, a health club, gymnasium, 24-hour security, cafes, restaurants and supermarkets.
