- PRESS RELEASE
Haya Water is all set to support the vision for a greener Muscat as the lead sponsor at Gulf Eco 2013 - one of Oman's premier pro-environment events, organized by the Ministry of Environment and Climate Affairs at OITE Trade Fairs between 20- 23 January 2013.
He also added, "At Haya Water, our eyes are set on the big picture with the long term benefits. Towards the same, we are confident that Gulf Eco 2013 will be the ideal platform to share our vision and eco-friendly practices with others working towards the same goal."
Haya Water supports the Muscat Municipality with treated effluents for irrigation purposes in parks and other greening projects along Sultan Qaboos Street and other main roads.
In addition, all green golf courses in the Muscat Governorate benefit from treated effluents provided by Haya Water. Muscat Hills, Almouj at the Wave and Ghala Valley Golf Club require these to keep their grounds ready for use. The result of using world class treated effluents ensures decreased dependence on ground water and expensive desalinated water sources.
Haya Water is currently developing a water reuse project - the largest project of its kind to be carried out in the Gulf region. The project is very crucial in providing enormous benefits to families, individuals and businesses across Muscat through using world-class technology in treating wastewater.
Another important project is Haya Water's Kala Composting plant, that is located at Al Multaqa in Amerat, to enable the efficient reuse of sewage biosolids, and green waste to enable their conversion to compost that can be used for agriculture, landscaping and for individual gardens.
The positive environmental impact of the project was recognised in 2011 when the company was awarded the prestigious OER "Green Footprint" award for its Kala Composting Plant. As a result, today 100% of all sewage biosolids generated by the company's water reuse treatment plants is now treated and converted to compost - instead of being dumped into a landfill site as hand been the practice in the past.
The capacity of the plant to deal with a wide range of other waste also means that other companies are now sending their waste to the Kala Composting Plant instead of dumping it into landfill sites - something that can contribute to creating greenhouse gases - especially methane.
In order to preserve the environment, Haya Water is building an extensive telecom infrastructure in conjunction with the water reuse project for the installation of the fiber optic cables in order to which in turn with facilitate internet and data related services to homes.
By installing fiber optic cables networks in tandem with the putting in place of water reuse project lines, the impact on the environment will be reduced and residents of localities will face lesser hindrances.
The cables, once in place will allow for different operators to use this network to provide fast speed Internet, voice and TV services to domestic, commercial, educational and other government premises in Muscat Governorate. Haya water is projecting to cover more than 110,000 plots passed ready for these services at the end of 2018 based on the rate of duct built within the sewer network.
