Metito provides self-sufficient water solution to Sheraton Sharm
METITO’s water solution technologies have been installed in the Sheraton Sharm Hotel on Egypt’s Red Sea coast, making it self sufficient in water.
Located on the southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula, the hotel operates 300 rooms, into which Metito’s integrated water and wastewater system was installed to ensure a constant supply of water to guests at the hotel, as well as recycling of its wastewater in an environment friendly manner, according to a company press release.
In the project’s first stage, consisted of sinking a beach well to pump seawater into an automated on-site seawater desalination plant using reverse osmosis technology to supply up to 1200 cubic meters of fresh water every day.
Sea Water Reverse Osmosis is the method in which seawater is desalinated into water suitable for drinking, swimming pools, kitchens and showers, sinks and toilet flushing throughout the hotel.
METITO also designed and installed an on-site sewage treatment facility for water used in showers, sinks and kitchens. Treated water from this facility can also then be re-used to help irrigate the landscaped areas of the hotel in an arid region where there is no natural water supply.
Founded in 1958, METITO is an international company providing wastewater treatment, desalination and water supply projects. The company supplied similar systems to other major hotels in Egypt and the UAE, including the Royal Mirage and Ritz Carlton in Dubai.
Metito runs its European, Asian and African operations from its regional headquarters in Sharjah, in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and has a factory and laboratory facility in the Hamriya Free Zone, and manages its operations in Egypt and North Africa from its offices in Cairo. — (menareport.com)
