Denmark-based Landia has signed a contract of undisclosed value to supply flowmakers, pumps, and mixers to a wastewater treatment plant in Aqaba, Jordan.

Expansion work is already under way as Jordan ramps up its "extensive construction of new hotels and resorts" to attract more tourists, pump manufacturer Landia said in a statement.

Landia will equip the plant with flowmakers that have a lifetime propeller guarantee, and install long-lasting submersible mixers and re-circulation pumps.

Working alongside Jordanian equipment supplier Modern Industrial Services, Landia will install 23 units at the plant, reducing the number of mixers in the anoxic tanks from 16 to eight.

Halving the total number of mixers will "significantly reduce installation and ongoing operational costs for many years to come", Landia said.

The upgrade of the Aqaba facility will see the construction of a 12,000m³ per day mechanical wastewater treatment plant, as well as the installation of systems for reclaimed urban and agricultural water, and a flow-splitter to separate in-fluent from the mechanical plant.

Landia's export sales director, Thorkild Maagaard, praised the "belief and vision" of the Jordanian engineers engaged on work for the plant.

He said it was good to see the that stakeholders wanted to set up a wastewater facility "designed and built with robust, efficient equipment that will stand the test of time".
