- PRESS RELEASE
BAUER Nimr LLC (BAUER) has been awarded an EPC contract by Hyundai Engineering Company to develop a sewage treatment plant with a long-term capacity of 300m3/day.
Using reed beds, BAUER is promoting a "green" and sustainable sewage treatment solution. The plant will be located in Ghumda village in Musandam close to the UAE-Omani border post, where Hyundai Engineering Company is constructing a gas processing plant on behalf of Oman Oil Company for Exploration & Production.
Once constructed, the reed beds will handle sewage water from the various contractor campsites. When the gas processing plant is fully developed, the sewage treatment plant will be handed over to the local community. "We are pleased to get involved in this important Corporate Social Responsibility project. Our solution will put less pressure on the existing sewage treatment infrastructure in Musandam, while at the same time giving the local community an environmentally friendly, energy neutral and simple to operate sewage treatment plant, which can last for more than 25 years," says Dennis K. Alexandersen, Regional Sales & Business Development with BAUER.
To-date, BAUER has been involved in a number of natural sewage treatment projects across the Middle-East region. "Our "green" solutions are ideal for rural and remote locations. We can match and in many cases even exceed the treatment standards of mechanical sewage treatment plants. With a reed bed you have no bad odour, less maintenance, no downtime due to plant failures and it can handle load fluctuations in terms of sewage quantity and quality. The Musandam constructed wetland has been designed to operate without the need for electricity, which is quite impressive and will save the local community a lot of money in the long-term," says Dr. Mohammed Al Rawahi, Specialist at BAUER's Wetland Competence Centre.
