The Hyundai Engineering Company has awarded an EPC contract to BAUER Nimr to develop a sewage treatment plant with a long-term capacity of 300 m3/day.

The constructed wetland treatment plant has been developed and designed by BAUER’s Wetland Competence Centre in Muscat.

Using reed beds (see WWi article) the plant will be located in Ghumda village in Musandam close to the UAE-Omani border post, where Hyundai Engineering Company is constructing a gas processing plant on behalf of Oman Oil Company for Exploration & Production.

Once constructed, the reed beds will handle sewage water from the various contractor campsites. When the gas processing plant is fully developed, the sewage treatment plant will be handed over to the local community.
