Metito wins $54m Abu Dhabi contract
Abu Dhabi, November 17, 2013
UAE-based Metito, a leader in total intelligent water management solutions in the emerging markets, has won a $54 million contract from Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (Adnoc) to provide sewage treatment solutions for its Ruwais housing complex.
The project will see Metito provide a new sewage treatment plant catering for the current needs of the development, as well as the long-term future expansion plans of Adnoc’s site at Al Ruwais housing complex.
The project follows Metito’s successful completion and transfer of two earlier phases of sewage treatment plants for the same housing complex, said a company statement.
The new plant will treat up to 25,000 cu m per day of raw sewage, with a designed expandable capacity of 30,000 cu m per day to adapt to the future expansion of the housing complex.
The selected treatment system is eco-friendly and capable of producing high standard effluent quality that will be re-used for irrigation and landscaping within the housing complex, said the statement.
In addition to the sewage treatment plant, the project includes septage receiving station, sewage pumping stations, pressurised sewage andirrigation lines, and two days storage capacity irrigation tank, it added.
Commenting on the win, Omar Zoubi, the Abu Dhabi GM, 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. It houses a large population as well as significant industrial installations and so keeping the complex environmentally sustainable, and integrating a productive and efficient wastwater treatment system is integral to this development.” he added.
In another development, Metito said it has completed a $21 million Sea Water Reverse Osmosis (SWRO) plant for ADMA-OPCO offshore operations, aimed at delivering potable water to Das Island.
The plant uses SWRO to process seawater in four streams, each with a capacity of 682 cu m per day, ensuring flexible water supply to the ADMA-OPCO’s operational staff base on the island.
Commenting on the Das Island project, Zoubi said: “This project has been delivered successfully to the client, and is fully operational, meeting the demands laid out in the initial agreement.”-TradeArabia News Service
