Metito bags sewage project in Hamriyah Free Zone Complex
Metito, the international water treatment, desalination and wastewater treatment expert, has won a Dh1.98 million contract for constructing an environment-friendly sewage treatment plant at the housing complex within the Hamriyah Free Zone in Sharjah.
Once complete, the new plant will be equipped to treat all sewage and wastewater within the complex.
