Egis wins consultancy services contract for major wastewater treatment plant in Qatar

Ashghal (Public Works Authority) has awarded Egis with a new contract to provide them with professional consultancy services in connection with designing, building, operating and maintaining the future Qatari Integrated Industrial Waste Water Treatment Plant.

In line with Qatar National Vision 2030, Ashghal will be launching new infrastructure projects across the country. It selected Egis as a partner for project management, design review and work supervision services.

The contract, signed earlier this year, engages a team of 18 professionals for a period of over four years.

The Integrated Industrial Wastewater Treatment Works Phase I (IIWWTW) will provide treatment for up to 10,000 cubic metres a day of tankered industrial wastewaters arising from light industries generated within the growing Doha Industrial Area Catchment.

The new IIWWTW Phase I facility will be designed with the flexibility to treat the range of influent characteristics representative of industrial activities in the catchment to Treated Industrial Effluent (TIE) standards.

It will be constructed approximately 2km Southwest of Doha Industrial Area, in the vicinity of the existing Industrial Area Sewerage Treatment Works (Phase 1 & 2A and extension 2B) in order to minimize cost and footprint, and allow for proximity to the existing and new deep injection wells for blended treated effluent disposal.

  • Article amended 14 February 2021 to clarify the type of contract.
