DSI clinches Iraq wastewater plant contract
Dubai, September 30, 2012
Drake & Scull International (DSI), a regional market leader in the MEP sector, said its subsidiary has won a Dh86 million ($23.4 million) turnkey contract from Iraqi Ministry of Municipalities for setting up a waste water treatment plant in the city of Kerbala.
The project was awarded to Passavant-Roediger by Al Hanan Contracting Company.
As per the contract, Passavant-Roediger will design and build the sludge treatment system of the plant based on anaerobic sludge digestion, including energy recovery and generation from biogas.
It will also install 12 sludge digesters each with a capacity of 3,400 sq m all equipped with the propriety Passavant-Roediger Sequential Gas Lance Mixing System, said a statement from DSI.
Passavant-Roediger’s patented anaerobic sludge digestion technology reduces sludge volumes and renders it harmless for safe discharge. It also allows the recovery of energy from the organic matter it treats, the statement said.
The process involved can generate up to 80 per cent of the power requirements of a WWTP, it added.
Commenting on the contract, Dr Mazen Bachir, the managing director of Passavant Roediger, expressed delight at being selected to contribute to the redevelopment of Iraq’s vital infrastructure.
"Our global experience and patented technology will allow the implementation of an optimal treatment process tailored to the sophisticated requirements of this high- scale project," Bachir noted.
"Our modern digesters will guarantee energy saving operations and less consumption of chemical substance required for the treatment process while ensuring efficiency and long term profitability for the client. We are currently gearing up to mobilize on site shortly and we expect the project to be delivered in 2013," he added
DSI had acquired Passavant-Roediger in 2009 to enhance its capabilities in the region’s water and wastewater sector. It is now a leading developer of wastewater, water and sludge treatment technologies, with operations across Europe, Africa, Asia and the Middle East.-TradeArabia News Service
