DUBAI, UAE – Ras Al Khaimah Wastewater Authority (RAKWA) has awarded Veolia Water Technologies a contract to upgrade the Al Fileyah wastewater treatment plant in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Signed during the WETEX 2016 show held this week in Dubai, the contract includes the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of the Al Fileyah plant, including supply, construction, commissioning and performance testing.
Plant capacity is expected to be doubled, from 20,000 m3/day to 40,000 m3/day with 12 months slated for project delivery.
As part of the project, Veolia said it will manage the significant increase of inlet flow over the years and overcome issues of odour nuisance. New UASB Bioreactors will be provided by Veolia subsidiary Biothane (Upthane™ technology).
Eng. Ahmed Mohamad Al Hammadi, chairman of RAKWA, said: “The extension of Al Fileyah treatment plant is very important for RAKWA as it strengthens our strategy to enhance the overall development of Ras Al Kheima Emirates. Partnering with Veolia for water treatment is in line with our commitment to build a strong and enduring team working alongside with Moalajah to deliver this project.”
