Haya Water is set to launch new sewage treatment plant (STP) in Oman with a capacity of about 50,000 cubic metres per day.

The plant is expected to be completed during the first quarter of 2017.

“This new STP will replace the existing one and will serve the areas of Wadi Kabir, Hamriya, Ruwi and, Darsait in Oman,” Hussain Hassan Abdul Hussain, CEO of Haya Water, said.

“This will increase the water treatment capacity in these areas. The new STP will be completely covered and will have a ventilation system equipped with the state-of-the-art technology, which will also purify any bad odours,” Hussain added.

The STP will use the reactor membrane technology to ensure high-quality treated water free from any kind of pollutants.

Two new tankers for reserving treated wastewater and a pumping station will be also constructed at the site, reported local daily Times Of Oman.

He enumerated the latest developments regarding the current and future projects and the plans of the company at an interaction with the media recently.

This was the second such gathering featuring the media that Haya Water organised after the success of a similar gathering in 2014.

The meeting was attended by Hussain bin Hassan Abdul Hussain, CEO of Haya Water, the general managers and a number of company officials.
