SQH signs sewage plant MOU in Syria
Company partners government in addressing need for clean water
Syrian-Qatari Holding (SQH) will construct two sewage treatment plants in the Syrian cities of Damascus and Suwayda, after signing a memorandum of understanding with Syrian minister of housing and construction Omar Ibrahim Ghalawenji.
"This partnership with the Ministry of Housing and Construction contributes to answering the country's need for clean water for industrial and agricultural use,” said SQH CEO Hassan Mukayed.
Mukayed also confirmed that SQH was currently considering several potential strategic regional and global companies to partner with for executing the project.
“Our investment in the sewage treatment plants will also play an important part in restraining water pollution in Damascus suburbs, Suwayda and the neighbouring areas. This project is fully in-line with SQH's focus on the development of infrastructure projects that can contribute to Syria's economic development and the well-being of its citizens," he added.
SQH claimed that it would invest in the project on a “Build-Operate-Transfer 'BOT' mechanism”.
The Ministry of Housing and Construction will provide the land, infrastructure and specifications, while also being responsible for delivering waste water to the facility.
