Metito completes wastewater project on Das Island, Abu Dhabi
Wastewater manager Metito has completed work on a 23 million Emirati dirham ($6.2 million) contract to design, supply and install sewage treatment works to serve a population of over 6,000 people living on the island.
The project has now been finally commissioned and handed over by Metito– Granite Consortium to ADMA/OPCO who are responsible for the overall project. The infrastructure that has been put in place will serve both existing and future demands for wastewater treatment on the island.
After the handover, Metito started the five-year operation and maintenance contract with ADMA/OPCO of the complete sewage collection and treatment systems on Das Island.
Metito completed the two-year contract on schedule. Scope of work for the company on the project included the design and building of the mechanical and electrical components of the sewage treatment plant, pumping stations and a SCADA monitoring system for the project.
The project is the latest in a series of major infrastructure projects that Metito has undertaken in the emirate of Abu Dhabi Emirate on behalf of governmental and Industrial Sectors.
The sewage treatment works installed can handle a peak flow up to 260 cubic meters an hour to cater for the estimated population of 6,000 people working on Das Island and coping with the different demands throughout the day caused by the shift method of working on the island.
The final element of the project was creating a SCADA system – a special software package that can be used for the monitoring at Das Island Sewage Treatment Plant, and Sewage Lift Stations. The SCADA system monitors the entire plant and lifting stations to ensure that the status of the systems is regularly communicated to main monitoring system at the Island.
A new technology introduced first in the Middle East was utilized in the project to handle produced sludge with a minimum area and to disinfect treated effluent using both ultra violet as primary disinfection and chlorination as secondary disinfection.
Metito is an international company for the provision of wastewater treatment, desalination and water supply projects.
