The Boukhalef wastewater treatment plant rehabilitation project completed by British company Biwater has been inaugurated by Moroccan King, Mohammed VI.
Rehabilitation works of the Boukhalef wastewater treatment plant were designed to improve the quality of effluent discharge to exceed international standards.
Treated sewage effluent (TSE) will be used to meet Morocco’s requirements for irrigation water for green areas in Southern Tangier, including for reuse on golf courses.
Civil engineering works were required alongside the installation of new electromechanical equipment, electricity and automation processes and tertiary treatment facilities.
Ahead of 2017, the facility will be expanded to increase capacity with additional clarification tanks constructed.
King Mohammed VI conducted an official ribbon cutting and unveiled a plaque documenting the opening.
“For all involved in this project, it was a real honour to welcome His Highness, King Mohammed VI, to the site and be given the opportunity to showcase Biwater’s rehabilitation works that have revitalised the local wastewater treatment plant,” said Yassine Laib,Biwater country manager, Morocco.
