WWP2Oman’s Haya Water has started the work on the master plan to supply 979cu/m of water per day to 4.1mn residents by 2045 

This was revealed recently by the company after the government in 2014 transferred the wastewater assets from the Ministry of Regional Municipalities and water resources in all governorates except Dhofar to Haya.

The length of the main networks is estimated to reach 2,765km and the sub-networks is expected to reach 31,350km. The networks will cover 86 urban areas by 2045. Moreover, around 755,000 units will be connected to the networks.

The company said that the total investment outlay for the implementation of wastewater projects in all regional governorates that come under the Haya Water scope of work during the year 2018-2045 has reached US$15.59bn.

Sulieman bin Khamis Al Qasmi, assets management general manager of Haya Water, said, “According to the master plan, the total number of sewage treatment plants at regional governorates will be 133 stations with a capacity of 979 cu/m per day. More than 4.1mn people will benefit from these projects by 2045.”

The construction of the sewage plants has been scheduled in various stages depending on different factors including environmental, health, social and economic factors.

“In the first phase, around 21 stations will be built with a total capacity varying 10,000 cu/m to 85,000 cu/m. Phase I will cover around 70 per cent of the nine governorates’ population. In Phase II, the established 65 stations shall have medium capacity, which will cover around 17 per cent of the population with a capacity of 930 cu/m per day. The sewage plants are expected to produce some 370 tonnes of sludge per year from these stations," he added.
