Cadagua, the water infrastructure unit of Spain’s Ferrovial, has completed the Darseit wastewater treatment plant in Muscat, Oman.
Because it is located in the urban core of the city, most of it is housed in buildings designed to fit in with local architectural styles.
For the same reason, a chemical odour treatment system minimises bad smells, the company said.Â
Built for client Oman Wastewater Services Company (Haya Water) the plant can treat around 50,000 cubic metres of water a day, using membrane bioreactor technology.
It treats effluent for use in Muscat’s irrigation network, cutting down on discharges into the sea.
The plant incorporates two electrical substations for transforming the power supply to low voltage, as well as emergency generators and a distributed central control system.
