Oman: Major wastewater treatment plant contract awarded
ITT Corporation, a leading provider of pumps and systems for the movement and treatment of water and wastewater, has been awarded a wastewater treatment plant contract in Oman for the city of A'Seeb. This contract was awarded to ITT through Hyundai Rotem, the project's general contractor.
ITT was selected by Hyundai Rotem to provide a secondary wastewater treatment solution that includes a sewage treatment plant based on continuous flow Sequencing Batch Reactor (SBR) technology, three main pump stations, two treated effluent pump station facilities, and an integrated control automation system. The plant, which will be Oman's largest in terms of capacity, is designed to reuse the treated wastewater for landscape irrigation purposes or for sea discharge in winter months, if needed.
"This contract represents a major win for ITT in the region, and really showcases the range of our expertise in the global water and wastewater market," said Per-Inge Birgersson, president of ITT Water & Wastewater. "We will play a critical role in this complex, multinational project that will yield ongoing benefit to the economy of Oman as well as the quality of life of its people." ITT provides a full range of wastewater and dewatering pumps, secondary biologic treatment, filtration and disinfection products to municipal and industrial wastewater businesses. The company is the largest manufacturer of submersible pumps and mixers used in wastewater treatment facilities around the world.
The A'Seeb facility is scheduled to open in March 2011.
