Dubai's Jebel Ali STP's Phase 2 is complete.

Dubai Municipality (DM) has completed construction work worth $353.9m (AED1.3bn) on Phase 2 of the expansion of Jebel Ali Sewage Treatment Plant (STP), which has a water treatment capacity of 375,000m3, taking the combined capacity of the Warsan and Jebel Ali Plants to almost one million m3.

With this expansion, the overall capacity of the plant will reach 232 billion m3, which is enough to irrigate 6,250 ha of cultivated land.

Commenting on the project, Dawoud Al Hajri, director general of DM said: "This expansion will cover the Expo 2020 Dubai and other areas of development and can accommodate the continued and future population growth with high efficiency."

Calling the project the "world’s lowest expansion", Al Hajri said DM has reduced the cost of treating waste water through the latest project, adding that 13 young engineers, including three women, worked on the development.

It took 10 million man-hours to complete the project, which used 143,000 m3 of solid reinforced concrete; 21,772 tonnes of reinforced steel; 2,659 pieces of mechanical and engineering equipment and machinery; 700 km of cables; and 30km of pipes, Wam reported.
