Xylem, a global water technology company headquartered in New York, US, has signed a $7.3-million contract with Bahrain’s Ministry of Works to upgrade a wastewater treatment facility in Manama.

As per the contract, Xylem will design, install and commission an expansion and upgrade of the existing Wedeco ozone systems at the Tubli Water Pollution Control Centre (TWPCC).

As a result of the upgrade, the Tubli plant will be the largest ozone waste-water treatment plant in the Middle East. The upgrade work will be completed and ready for operation by the end of 2015.

Once completed, the capacity of the new waste-water treatment facility will increase from 200,000 to 240,000 cu m per day.

The enhanced waste-water reuse capacity is necessary for irrigation purposes in the area and will benefit the local agriculture and horticulture sectors in particular, said a senior official.

“Increased waste-water reuse capability has the potential to bring wide-ranging benefits to communities and businesses in the Middle East,” explained Andre Dhawan, president of Xylem Europe, the Middle East, India and Africa (EMEIA).

“This is a meaningful win for Xylem in the Middle East and a great opportunity for us to demonstrate our expertise in solving local complex water challenges,” he added.-Trade Arabia News Service.
