Metito, a UAE-based international water desalination and waste water treatment company, announced today that it will be providing sewage treatment solutions for ADNOC’s Al Ruwais Housing Complex in Abu Dhabi.
The project, which is worth more than $54m, will see Metito provide a new sewage treatment plant catering to the current needs of the development as well as the long-term future expansion plans for ADNOC’s site at the Al Ruwais Housing complex.
The new plant will treat up to 25,000m3 per day of raw sewage, with a designed expandable capacity of 30,000m3 per day.
Besides being eco-friendly, the plant will also be capable of producing high quality effluent that can be re-used for landscaping and irrigation purposes within the complex.
Commenting on this project, Omar Zoubi, general manager, Metito Abu Dhabi, said, “Metito has worked extensively with ADNOC in the past, and we are very honoured to have been entrusted with the responsibility of this new project at Al Ruwais.”
“Ruwais is a strategic location for ADNOC and the UAE oil & gas sector,” Zoubi said. “It houses a large population as well as significant industrial installations, and so, keeping the complex environmentally sustainable and integrating a productive and efficient wastewater treatment system is integral to this development.”
In addition to the sewage treatment plant, the project also includes septage receiving station, sewage pumping stations, pressurised sewage and irrigation lines, and two days storage capacity irrigation tank.
This new project follows Metito’s successful completion and transfer of two earlier phases of sewage treatment plants for the same housing complex.
Metito has also announced the completion of a $21m sea water reverse osmosis (SWRO) plant for ADMA-OPCO offshore operations that has been aimed at delivering potable water to Das Island.
The plant uses SWRO to process seawater in four streams, each with a capacity of 682 m3 per day, ensuring flexible water supply to the ADMA-OPCO’s operational staff base on the island.
