(Image source: donjd2/Flickr)BAUER Nimr has been awarded an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract by Hyundai Engineering Company to develop a sewage treatment plant that could reach a capacity of 300 cu/m per day

The wetland treatment plant has been developed and designed by BAUER Nimr's Wetland Competence Centre in Muscat.

The 'green' plant will be located in Ghumda village in Musandam, close to the UAE-Oman border.

Once constructed, the reed beds will handle sewage water from the various contractor campsites. When the gas processing plant is fully developed, the sewage treatment plant is expected to be handed over to the local community. 

Dennis K. Alexandersen, regional sales and business development with BAUER Nimr, said, "Our solution will put less pressure on the existing sewage treatment infrastructure in Musandam, and at the same time give the local community an environmentally friendly, energy neutral and simple to operate sewage treatment plant, which can last for more than 25 years."

Mohammed Al Rawahi, specialist at BAUER Nimr’s Wetland Competence Centre, said, "With a reed bed you have no bad odour, less maintenance, no downtime due to plant failures and it can handle load fluctuations in terms of sewage quantity and quality. The Musandam constructed wetland has been designed to operate without the need for electricity, which is quite impressive and will save the local community a lot of money in the long-term."
