Emirate of Ajman to install $140 million modern sanitation system
The government of Ajman is finalizing its first ever Sewer Law that will be the start of a $140 million project to introduce a modern sewerage system to the Emirate, confirmed a press release.
It will be one of the biggest construction projects ever undertaken in Ajman and involve the creation of a new concession company comprising Thames Water and Black & Veatch, two of the world's leaders in the wastewater business, in partnership with the government of Ajman.
The project has been developed because the Government of Ajman recognized the need for the Emirate to have a modern and environmentally sound sewerage system in place to meet the demands of a growing Emirate and replace the existing outdated methods of sewage disposal.
When completed in four years time, the system will be able to handle a projected future population of 300,000 people in Ajman and will include the construction of a centralized sewage treatment plant, more than 15 pump stations and over 200 kilometers of sewer network pipeline.
Thames Water is the third largest water company in the world and delivers services to over 44 million people in 44 countries across the globe including Egypt and Turkey in the Middle East.
Black and Veatch delivers power and water infrastructure services and has played a significant role in a number of projects in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) including engineering, construction and expansion of the sewage treatment plant in Sharjah in recent years. — (menareport.com)
