Water solutions provider Metito has won a contract from the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) to develop a US$54mn sewage treatment project for its Ruwais Housing Complex
According to Saudi Arabian newspaper Arab News, Metito will design and construct a new sewage treatment plant, sewage receiving and pumping stations, irrigation lines and a storage tank at the site, 240km west of Abu Dhabi.
The new plant will treat up to 25,000 cubic metres of raw sewage each day and is expected to be extended to treat up to 30,000 cubic metres of waste in the future.
The treated water can be re-used for irrigation and landscaping within the housing complex, Metito said.
Metito has earlier worked on two sewage treatment plant projects in the Ruwais Housing Complex.
The Ruwais Housing Complex, developed by ADNOC for its employees, has around 1,357 residential units. The site also houses shopping centers, schools, mosques, medical centres, sports and recreation centers, banking and postal services, and a TV and video station, covering six square kilometre of area.
Metito Abu Dhabi general manager Omar Zoubi said, “Ruwais is a strategic location for ADNOC and UAE’s oil and gas sector. So keeping the complex environmentally sustainable, and integrating a productive and efficient wastewater treatment system is integral to this development.”
Earlier this year, Metito won a US$5.7mn contract from Abu Dhabi’s Zakum Development Company (ZADCO) to provide water treatment solutions and oversee the operations and maintenance of its upcoming desalination project on Zirku Island.
The company also recently completed a US$21mn sea water reverse osmosis (SWRO) plant project for Abu Dhabi Marine Operating Company (ADMA-OPCO), Arab News reported.
