Degremont/Al Ansari JV to design wastewater plant
Firms will also operate and maintain treatment plant under a $62.9mn contract with Haya Water
A joint venture of France's Degrémont and Oman's Al Ansari Trading Entreprise has been chosen to design and operate a 18,000 m3/day capacity wastewater treatment plant in Muscat.
The €50mn ($62.9mn) contract, which is being shared equally between the parties, has a two-year term for the operation and maintenance of the plant.
Situated in Al-Amerat, a residential suburb of the capital city Muscat, the plant will use the UltraforTM membrane bio reactor process, which is appropriate for treating urban and industrial wastewater.
Following treatment, this technology produces an effluent that can meet the most stringent water standards and allows the effluents to be recycled and reused in the most sensitive environments, said Degrémont.
The treated water in the Al-Amerat wastewater treatment plant will be used for irrigation.
Degrémont, a subsidiary of Suez Environnement, has been selected by Hyundai Engineering & Construction to build the reverse osmosis sea water desalination plant at the Mirfa Independent Water and Power Project (Mirfa IWPP) in Abu Dhabi
