DOHA, Qatar, Jan. 19, 2009 -- The Metito designed wastewater treatment plant at the New Doha International Airport (NDIA) has been completed ahead of the scheduled opening in 2010. The 28,713m³/day capacity plant adds to Metito's already extensive portfolio of projects around the GCC and the rest of the world. Whilst Metito is very much a UAE based company, it is very active in the GCC and across the globe.
Walid Oraby, General Manager of Metito, Qatar said, "Even in the current economic climate, Metito is showing that they are not holding back on large projects such as NDIA, and we are very much looking forward to more business opportunities in Qatar."
The $12.5 million plant is currently undergoing site acceptance tests, which are necessary for a plant of this size. As the airport is not yet completed, the individual systems will be kept under a moth balling period of nearly two years until the new airport is commissioned.
